I love fresh starts. Last week we cleaned and sorted and did inventory (an amazing amount of merchandise went out our door in 2011), then rearranged furniture and started to bring in new things. The carpet cleaners will come Tuesday night to remove the last of the holiday sparkle glitter dust from the floor. Besides that, the shop looks fresh and ready for the new year! Friday night, Paul from Urban Ashes brought in a huge selection of the fabulous picture frames his company makes from locally cut trees that would traditionally meet their fate in a wood chipper or as firewood. Each frame is marked with the species and is beautifully finished. You can read more about Urban Ashes on their website and in this intesting annarbor.com article. I love the story behind this local Michigan company! Monthly Special: As our featured local company for January, when you buy an Urban Ashes frame, you'll receive a $5.00 FOUND gift card! Other recent additions to the shop are pottery from New York City based CANVAS, more billiard balls, and a new flock of birds that flew in. Burlap Boutique's latest recycled coffee bags feature some fun recycled flowers. Made in Brighton, Michigan. We have a small, but unique selection of cards. And Laurie from Stories & Divinations delivered more handmade journals crafted from recycled vintage books a couple days ago. Every day next week, we'll be adding more. Hope to see you soon!
