Building Building Building

Last week we blogged about our
Upcoming Excitement}
and of course, we have more to add this week!

BUILDING Inventory
Sarah from SB Designs moved in last Sunday and we L O V E her scrabble tile penants! 

We also have 2 more new Contributors moving in before February and they both are contributing large furniture pieces!

Next Tuesday we will be revamping what we call our "Cupboard Room", which is a room in {the store} that has always felt like dead space.  There is a wall of cupboards, with a counter that we seem to just stack product on and it doesn't have any direction!  Sooooo...we are ripping them out.  Check back for before and after pictures!

Oh and before we forget...we always like to give our customers a good deal on our quality handcrafted products so we announced on Facebook the other day that we will be starting
{Weekly Feature Wednesday}
So, it is Wednesday and our feature of the week is
All jewelry will be 10% off {Thursday, January 24th - Sunday, January 27th}.  We will post an album on Facebook of the included items.

Upcoming Excitement

Good things come to those who wait.

{the store} has been open for almost a year now and although we have had some tough times, things just keep getting better and better each month!  We can't wait to see how great 2013 will be especially if 2012 was predicted to be a slow year.  We had no idea where we'd be in a year and we are definately pleased.

Eventhough everybody seems to be on a budget these days, along with oursleves, consumers are still budgeting to go shopping which is great for small businesses like ours. Thank you!

We've been in search of a new furniture Contributor for a few months and now all of a sudden we have 3 potential ones we are working with.  How great is that?  We'd LOVE for {the store} to be jam packed with furnitre from floor to ceiling!

Our vision of {the store} is to to handcrafted where every item is 'touched' in some way.  We strive to be different than other shops in this aspect and we have become a really close knit co-op.  We absolutely love how each and every one of our Contributors works well with us, provides feedback, and shares all of their wonderful ideas. 

If you or anybody you know is interested in joining our team don't hesitate to contact us.  You can also find additional information at this link:!/notes/mesheddesigns/mesheddesigns-in-buffalo/265812286810729

Back to the Grind

2013 is full steam ahead and we
are not stopping! 

Now that the holidays are over, we are back to blogging and keeping all of you up-to-date on everything that is exciting.

Did you know, we are coming up on our 1 Year Anniversary in our very own brick and mortar store?! 

Well, I didn't realize it until this morning and I reminisced on how about this time last year we signed our contract to rent our location and started transforming the place.

I can't believe how much work we did and the long nights we spent there!  Shayna was 8 months pregnant with her second child and I had a 3 year old and 9 month old who were stuck down there with us working the whole time.  What were we thinking...?  Oh, and we drug along our husbands too to do the grunt work, bless their hearts for putting up with us!

We have an album on our Facebook page of some of the changes we've made through the year but I know I have more pictures somewhere, so I'll track them down and post those too.
