A sad end but new beginnings

I have been trading at The Old Salerooms in Wellington since July. Sadly I have now left my booth.
Unfortunately the management was totally chaotic and not condusive to running a successful business.
However out of all this has come some great friendships and wonderful opportunities.

I met Jilly of jillysvintageteaparty she has become a  friend and a business partner.

We both love to drink tea from China cups, here's one of my favourites....

and tea for two from Jilly.

We both have used Annie Sloan paints for several years

my sideboard started like this .....a charity shop find

and turned into this

painted in Country Grey it now has a French look to it.

My duet stool was also transformed with Old White.

After a really bad experience at The Old Salerooms it is a joy to meet someone who has a similar work ethic and shares so many ideas and skills.

The exciting news is that Jilly is opening a new shop in Wellington,along with another collegue Peter Zurcher and will be stocking Annie Sloan paints.

It's a great venture for them both and I am delighted to be part of the team. We are all commited to making the new premises a great success.

If  you are in Wellington look out for us at "Vintage Chic-just for you" behind Stags Estate agents.

You'll be sure of a great welcome, see you there!!

Dear Angela, I wish you good luck with your new venture!
the cabinet you restored looks so beautiful, in it`s Annie Sloan coat.

Shirley said...

Let me know when you open Angela and I will send some customers your way. I know it is going to be a great venture. Have a lovely day at Cowslip.

It sounds as though you have found a new venture that will be a better showcase for your beautiful work. I missed your post on your dolls, a shade of prim in your style and I learned a new word after visiting the Cowslip website, wadding. I have to save that word for future use, more clever than batting.

Sounds like a very exciting venture! All the very Best. Lizzie

Yikes! I missed this one, too. When one door closes, another one opens. I'm glad you met Jilly and are on to another business adventure. Sounds lovely! I work in an office where very few people have the same work ethic I do and it is very, very, very aggravating and frustrating. I don't know how people can show up every day, do nothing, take a paycheck and think that is okay. Just gets on my nerves big time. Wishing you all the best! Tammy
