Welcome to Shades ETC's blog. My purpose for this blog is to inform you of what I'm currently creating in the home decor. I will post pictures of products as I'm making them so you can see them from start to finish. I'll tell you where I'm going to be displaying my products so if you are in the area you can come and see them in person.
Come on in, grab a cup of tea, and let your eyes light up at the exquisite creations you see.
I'm opening a gift shop this summer in Bemus Point that will feature my lamps and other things from me (Cindy). This is the beginnings of what it will look like. Today I went to an antique mall to look at possible furniture to be included in the shop on consignment. They will be display pieces for me and sellable pieces as well.
Here's one of my favorites.
This dresser, if it still available, will be used for a scarf and scarf tube jewelry display. There is a matching dresser that I would also like to include in the shop if it is still available in May.
Exquisite Things Gift Shoppe will carry mostly handmade in the USA items that have a rose or flower theme or birds and butterflies, as well as feminine, frilly, lacy, victorian items. This is not a country shop.
Some items that I'm hoping to carry besides my lamps are my husband's exotic wood items, handmade cameo soaps, handmade soaps with roses, handmade candles with floral scents, scarves with jewelry tubes (there will be minimal jewelry in the shop), floral arrangements, photos, victorian stationery, and greeting cards, and some victorian antique furniture.
