// meet the shopkeep…brooklyn rehab

happy monday!  did you have a good weekend?  we worked on our backyard patio and got to enjoy some time outside with friends (and our fire pit!  seriously, why is staring in to a fire so enjoyable?!  must be the zen of it.)

up today in the boardwalk shop is alyssa from brooklyn rehab – i know that i’ve blogged about her stuff a few times – i’ve been coveting her work for awhile (and her nautical necklace is a FAVE of mine!!)  so i was excited to have her on board for this shop especially since she’s from brooklyn, home to the inspiration of this shop, coney island!

and better yet?  i now carry brooklyn rehab!  they made a great showing at the summer markets – everyone went nuts for the shaker sets :)

{gift guide round up}

happy friday!!  i’m still trying to get on board with the fact that it’s december…and there’s only 3 weeks left until christmas! are you guys just starting holiday shopping or have you finished?  i’m one of the “just starting” folks!  (and yes, every year i say that i’m going to shop early – never happens)

so i thought i’d compile a couple of my favorite gift guides out right now to help out with gift ideas. i stuck to ones that are in magazine form – but there are so many awesome gift ideas on blogs too – and i’ve said it before, i loves me a gift guide!!  (not sure why, maybe i’m related to santa claus :)

next week, i’ll have my own picks for gifts from my store & other places!  have a lovely december weekend!!

so the big question is…have you started your holiday shopping yet?  just like alot of people, i’ll be starting mine right after thanksgiving (i say, year after year, that i’m going to start early…and without fail, i’m always shopping last minute!  although it is a bit easier now that i have my own store!)

my friend shannon, owner of stash style,  invited me to a sneak peek of her pop up shop happening this weekend.  so i grabbed a few friends (the lovely sharon & michelle !) and we headed over on monday to shop early and see the early stages of set up! shannon is so creative and always styles her pop up shops to make them feel warm, inviting & a bit like a treasure hunt!

so if you happen to be in the cleveland area, make sure to stop by her shop this weekend (fri-sun).  to make things even more fun, she hooked up with cosmic collectibles and they’re offering a fun deal!  if you bring a receipt from one store, you can get 20% off the other one!!

I absolutely LOVE gift guides.  I anxiously await receiving my December magazines so that I can immediately flip to the holiday gift guide.  This then leads to me checking out the websites for my favorite items listed in the gift guide, which then leads to me searching the whole website, which then leads to me finding an online gift guide, which then leads to…..well, you get the idea.            (did I mention I love gift guides!)

And now I get to share my own holiday gift ideas!  More gift ideas to follow in the next few days as well…
