and... some great news.

you might remember from a few months ago, when i posted about a shop that my parents were helping out with?

well, they didn't want me to say anything about it at the time... but they took over the lease for that shop, and have gone into business for themselves! it's a furniture consignment/ vintage/ antiques shop. i'm so excited for them.

check out their upstairs showroom.

(see if you can find the people in the picture.)

if you're in rhode island, please go visit them!! even just to say hi! they'd definitely love to see you :)

1081 main street hope valley, ri

also, i convinced my mom that she needed an online presence for the store. starting with... a blog :P it's in the beginning stages, but you should still check it out if you get the chance.

oh and, if you follow me on twitter or facebook, you might remember i was in a local paper for my kickstarter (thanks to my mom.) well, like typical adoring parents, they put it up in their store :)

they've been making my heart melt every day. i'm really lucky to have a family that truly loves me and "gets" me. not everyone does...
