Making New Friends and Keeping the Old

Our new sign!

Can I just say I have the best friend and partner in the whole world!  (Okay the best two...I love you too honey!)  I don't think I have written a blog post since last October!!!  Thank you Kandi for keeping this part of our dream alive.   I am hoping to never be away for so long again.  It has been so long, I had forgotten how to log on!  I am hoping as I write this it will all come back to me just like riding that bike right?  :) 

So let me catch you up on what is happening with our little Virginia extension of Woven Home....As many of you know I agreed to be a part of a two month long Winter Market here in Lynchburg.  We had a blast, & we sold alot of furniture and pillows over those two months.  However, had it not been for my mother's frequent visits to Virginia, my family would not have put up or taken down our Christmas tree this year!  She was amazing. 

I know this may come as a shock, but  I have learned over the past few months that I really can't do it all, so although I loved sharing a store, I think I can cross that number off my bucket list!  My hat goes off to all of those great hard working store owners!  We are still passionate about getting our product into your home, so I  have made the decision to continue to supply product in a whole sale/consignment manner to our favorite places and we add another location  or perhaps locations to our list.

URBAN MERCHANT in downtown Lynchburg is one of my favorite local places to shop.  We just dropped off our spring line of pillows and covers last week.  For our North Carolina fans, we will be at the FINDER'S KEEPERS sale this spring and we can't wait to see you!

Today was a huge day for us at Woven Home, today we moved into a corner booth space at a "little store" in Roanoke called BLACK DOG SALVAGE....you may have heard of it because it has its own show on HGTV and the DIY network!!!!   The staff at Black Dog is amazing and so helpful.  If you are in Roanoke please stop by and see our new space. 



Here are a few pictures of our new space.  I decided bright and cheerful was for me.  After all the reds and greens from Christmas, pastel was a nice change of pace.  I also decide we would expand our inventory past pillows to include furniture, baskets, tool caddies, and vintage accessories. 




Spring pillows $48 with down insert, pillow covers $28 & Slubby storage bags $48.
 
 
I love these candlestick chairs!
 
 
 
Pillow covers
 
 
I decided fabric swatches would be a great additions to our space.  Many of our clients carry our pillow covers around with them when they shop for other "items" so I thought this might be a nice addition.  It is also nice to be able to take the fabric home with you before a purchase to make sure the fabric works with your existing home decor...We also include fabric swatches with each of our covers.
 





 
Vintage farm table and distressed chairs.
 
 
Pink depression glass plates and candlesticks. Barn wood tool caddies, silver plate trays and lavender sachets....
 
 
I love my friend Carolyn's company Turtleworks so much I asked her if I could have a few soaps and lotions for my space!
 
I hope you like our spring line....more pictures coming soon.
 
Thanks
 
Rebekah

  1. Congratulations on your new venture at Black Dog! I am sure that your things will sell very quickly there. I saw your new spring line and Urban Merchant the other day and really like it.

    The stone house next door was built by my great-great grandfather. I didn't realize this until a few years ago. I found some family pictures on Black Dog's website and I was shocked at how much I look like some of the women pictured. Here's my link if you are interested: http://www.virginiasweetpea.com/2011/07/black-dog-salvage-in-roanoke-and-family.html

    Hope to run into you again soon!

  3. How exciting! Your space is positively delicious! I'm curious, are any of your pillow covers for sale to say, bloggers? Like, do you ship??
    xoxo,

  4. Hi! My name is Tina and I bought your Halloween witch at Black Dog Salvage right before you took her home for yourself. :) I wanted to let you know that I named her Esmeralda (well, my mother-in-law helped). I love her!
