This morning I got up early and headed to the Springfield Extravaganza.For those of you not familiar, the Extravaganza is held twice a year on fairgrounds between Dayton and Columbus. It’s a really good flea market/antique show.
Only this time, I was a little sad. We usually head to the September show to do some last minute stocking for our big French French Flea Market. This year would have been our 6th.
You see, we’re not shopping for the brick & mortar store at the moment. If you haven’t heard, Dana is moving to Nashville where her husband relocated with his job. And I’ve come to the realization that I can’t run the store and the design studio by myself. So we’ve come to the very difficult decision to close the retail store here in Dayton, at least for the time being. It took us awhile to even be able to say it out loud or tell anyone. But we’re moving forward with a “change is a good thing, positive attitude”.
Next on our agenda is moving the studio to the new downtown Dayton location in the Front Street Buildings. And we’ll be having a big Bon Voyage sale in a few weeks so stay tuned. The website store remains open and hopefully will expand. In the meantime, we’ll keep Scouting, because that’s what we love to do. I’m sure the sadness will turn back into the giddiness we feel when we load our “wheelie dealie” into the car at the crack of dawn and head out looking for those vintage treasures. In the meantime, the interior design studio is running full force so give us a call, and be sure to let us know if you’ve got your eye out for something special…
