I bought a cupboard,
it was mostly stripped, which is a style
that I love in my home,
I needed to fix the problem without
using a stripper...soooo...
I painted the old varnished section.
I made a wash of different paints
to create nearly the same color of the stripped wood.
It lightened it considerably,
so I am satisfied...
In the meantime
what to do, what to do...
I just purchased this piece and it has the
should I paint, strip or fake it...?
Gonna wait awhile before I decide,
we'll wait and see, I'm thinkin'!!!

I will now begin posting on this blog the
photos of the new store, our activities, our inventories,
our new dealers...everything that the travelor
would want to know when seeking a fun
a sweet lil' black chest, newly painted,
ready to use.
We are in an historic downtown right on the
Mighty Mississippi River, well, one block away anyway.
Our shop is filled with dealers in a 3000 sq.ft.
building...we call ourselves a co-op
because of the multiple businesses that have joined
our lil' quest.
First and foremost, we have The Wild Thing(me),
then we have the Junk Asylum(Lorie)...
Lorie and I have had several storefronts together,
I guess you could say we are addicted to junk.
When we were offered this building that is right
next door to my daughter's shop, we decided this
would be the perfect fit for all of us.
So we started compiling AND COMPILING,
it didn't take long to get the store filled, but then...
we decided to start adding other shop owners to the mix.
Plus we had other vendors interested in joining
and some wanting to start a biz, so why not,
we had a complete lower level to fill
as well...so, a co-op is born.
We all love junk, paint and experimenting
with trends, so why not.
The Wild Thing is the name of my soap biz...
been crafting and selling soaps for years, so
I decided this was the perfect name for
my fledgling brick n mortar...
we've only been open since Nov. 2014,
so this is only the beginning of our
Sunday, August 3, 2014
what types of soaps to carry in my store.
Goat milk scented and unscented...
5 oz. square bricks of delight...
essential oil goat milk.
Until we know when we get into the new store,
all I can do is plan ahead and compile inventory...
this is the fun part...well, it's all the fun part,

brick and mortar storefront, I've decided to
come out of retirement and open another shop.
We were offered the building next to
my daughter's shop, Candle Shed Effect.
We have just been one year at this new location
and the landlord came to us and said the boxing club
is moving...hmmmm...I said YES!
This is the perfect opportunity, so check out my
Facebook page for updates The Wild Thing...
