August at All That Jazz

I took a couple new pieces into the space last weekend!

This nightstand/dresser was a piece my Mom had and it got a makeover with AS Chalk Paint in the Duck Egg Blue color. It's a pretty little piece with a lot of character.

The little round end table on the right is the second piece I took in. I forgot to get a good picture. I hate it when that happens!  It was originally and ugly shade of green with brown undertones. I painted it the same color as the previous piece, the Duck Egg Blue, then stenciled a fleur de lis pattern on all 3 shelves. It really made the piece pop and it looks oh so much better.

There are more changes than just the new furniture. My Nana has left Jazz. She wasn't making enough sales to make it worth keeping her spot. Michelle has also "officially" left but her stuff remains behind. A hectic Summer has prevented her from packing it all up but we're thinking by the end of the month she'll be able to get it all boxed up. Then I'm REALLY on my own.  The twins (my Mom and Michelle's Mom) will still be my partners but truth be told I do 95% of the work. It's basically MY addiction. I just drag them along for the ride most of the time!

Also on the new changes front, the shop we have All That Jazz in has sold. The owners have moved on to a new opportunity within the space of a month and a half  and we now have a new owner. Our previous owners will be greatly missed, they are wonderful people and were a tremendous help to us as new vendors but I am also excited about the new direction I think our shop may be taking!

I'll keep you updated. I have new stuff stacked up in the shed at home and have been working on some new projects. I've just been waiting for Michelle's things to fly the coop to make room. I think September will be a great time to make a fresh start.  Happy Sunday and have a wonderful week!

Looks great as always! I'm sure I can claim my goods before the end of the month. I forgot I have those big burlap pillows there, I need to bring them here and sell 'em at my new "stand." ;-)
I'm excited to hear and see what the new changes will be, I'm sure you will do great and will be successful even on your own!!

Hi Tara Sweetie...
What a beautiful shop tour. I so wish I lived close by. I would so be there shopping. I love the use of the burlap among many of your items. How lovely everything looks.

Can't wait to see future posts my friend. A beautiful share and a beautiful arrangement in your booth.
