The small town Colorado girl who’s obsessed with home and everything that entails! I’m a creative, a decorator, a day dreamer, a huge fan of scones, and I’m passionate about loving where I live and making a home.
Last year I had been mulling the idea over of an online shop. I can’t even tell you how many e-mails I’ve received from readers wanting to purchase some of our projects that we only intended to build for our home. I kept pushing the idea to the back burner, but came really close to starting something up and just running with it until I figured everything out. But, knowing me and how I operate, that’s not how I wanted to launch a part of our business or brand. It didn’t seem right to just throw out some pictures, pricing, and shipping information. Our products are so much more than that. And they deserve better than that. So do you.
While we were at The Vintage Whites Market, I had numerous people tell me they’d love to see an online shop. I couldn’t quite believe it, because we’d never really thought about selling items other than the few things we’ve made ourselves. But then the market took place and everyone was so interested in buying more of things they know and love about our home, blog and style. And that’s when I realized it was something we needed to do, yes, but something that our business was longing for. It’s growth and branding and a new future idea all rolled into one big, possible thing. And the best part is, we’re actually taking the steps to get everything moving! (Insert 1,000 smiley faces!) 😀
If you took our reader survey, you probably had an idea that this was going to take place. So many of you were asking, begging and pleading for us to start up a shop. While I won’t be touching on everything I learned from the reader survey (I will soon), I definitely got the memo that you wanted to be able to purchase something from our online shop. Your love, support and requests have been heard! THANK YOU so very much for every kind word!
And because I like to have a plan, a goal, and a general idea of where we’ll go, we have a few months before we will be launching the online store. We have things to build, new items to launch, items to stock, shipping to figure out… and we need a space other than our dining room table to work out of. 😀
There is so much thought and extra details that goes into all of this. I want to make it run smoothly, to do it right. And all of that will take us a bit of time. I’ll be sharing updates as we make progress, and the opening date once we get closer!
We’ll have several of the items we build, think stackable crates, breakfast in bed trays, recipe boxes, chalkboards, grain sack aprons, burlap placemats, pillow designs, etc. But we’ll also have several other items that I love. Items you’ve seen in our home and from the market. We’ll have cotton (stems & wreath), heifer heads & so much more. And, we’ll grow as we can.
So, that’s the plan. In the mean time, I have lists to make, shipping to figure out, an area to clean up & get ready for storage & shipping (more on that soon), and so many other things I’m sure we haven’t even stumbled upon yet.
So… Let the adventure begin! 😀
P.S.- If things seem a little different on the site, please pardon our dust. We’re in the middle of a blog redesign and will be freshening things up over the next few days! 😀

This is very exciting news. Can’t wait to shop your shop 🙂
I’m excited for you, will you still do DIY projects as usual?
Thank you so much! Yes, we will absolutely still being doing DIY projects and blogging as normal! We’ll just have a shop portion too! 😀
Congratulations! This is awesome news. Best of luck with everything…and you do need a dedicated space. Good decision there!
How exciting for you. As my husband says when we are faced with a ginormous project – “freak out then think out” It always works. Enjoy the process.
So happy for you and us online shoppers ! Hard work and proud accomplishments that’s the way I would describe you two youngsters. Your parents must be very proud of you ! Looking forward to shopping.
Well, you just made my day! Love the idea of shopping with you as all of your ideas and designs are just perfect around here. Thank you for being so willing to take on yet more work to make us happier. Good luck!!!
So excited for you on your new adventure!
Hopefully shipping will be available for us Canadians as well.
I find it very hard to order things from the US sites but am grateful for my dad being a snowbird in Florida.
Looking forward to placing my first order!
Hip, Hip, HOORAY!!!!!!! 🙂 Let’s get the shopping underway!!!
Very excited about being able to shop your products online. Thanks for sharing your journey! You guys are very inspiring!
Yipee! Very excited to be able shop on line for your products!
I’m so excited. Hope your home sweet home pillow case is online to purchase. 🙂
Wow. Good for you and your hubby. Looking through your blog and seeing how your home has evolved, has been enjoyable. I love some of your DIY’s. Since I don’t live in Colorado, I am very happy to read that you are starting this online shop. Starting a new business takes time, money, hard work and devotion. Looking at all you two have done so far as a couple, I would say “you got this”! Can’t wait to see how this develops. Good Luck. Can’t wait to shop. 🙂
Oh my gosh I can’t wait! I am so excited for you and us! Love your style and your blog! I look forward to shopping with you!
And you will rock it! With all the thought and prep, it’ll be as gorgeous and wonderful as your first (perfect) market!!
Very excited about shopping your online store ! I love your blog and check it out everyday. Hope there will be shipping to Canada.
How fun! I’m so excited!! Good luck with starting everything up, I know that’s the hardest part!
although i am as poor as a church mouse, i am excited to just see the shop you and anthony have come such a long way and i am happy for you and you know i wish you two the best xx
Super Excited for you and Super Excited for me ‘the Shopper’. Looking forward to viewing the store and purchasing items. Definitely want an apron and the stacking crates just to begin with. Thank you so much.
How awesome!! Your blog is the first I read every day with my morning coffee and I’m so excited for you!! I just love your style, your diy projects and all your inspiration!! Good luck and enjoy!!!:)
Fantastic news! Will you be making everything or outsource? Does this mean you won’t be doing any more vintage shows? Will you create your own website store? Or try an etsy shop first? Too many questions I know but 2014 was supposed to be the year I started a blog. But it’s come and gone. I started following you looking at blogs to admire and follow. And I’ve stayed with yours. Good luck keep us followers up to date. I’ll be hanging on every word.
YAY!! That’s so very exciting! I love your style and can’t wait to see what you come up with!!
Dear Shayna ~
So happy for you and Anthony – you deserve the best life has to offer.
You both work so hard and you will see your rewards now.
I love watching you and Anthony work together, it makes me (as a Mom) appreciate all the hard work you put into every thing you do.
God bless you honey and I will pray you and Anthony have much success.
Awesome! Can’t wait!
Dear Shayna, I am so excited and happy for you and your husband. What a wonderful adventure for you both to be on. I think this is exactly what you need and from the sound of you, it sounds like it’s exactly what you wanted and need. Reminds me of when my sister and I opened up a store called “Rags to Riches. It was sort of a combination of consignment and things that my sister and I remade, painted, restored and reused. Not quite on the scale of what you will be doing 😀 We had it for 18 years. It was a great excuse to always go to flea markets or garage sales 😀 We had a blast and I know you both will too. Best of luck sweetie but it truly doesn’t sound like you need any 😀 I’ll be watching and waiting. Sincerely, Diena
That’s awesome news! I’m so happy for you. I had only just found your blog when you posted the reader survey so I din’t mention the shop, but having snooped around your site a bit I’m so happy you’re thinking of doing it! Best of luck with setting it up!
Shayna, I love all of the ideas you come up with. So cute! I can’t wait to be able to shop your store online. Would you mind putting together a tutorial on how you made your clothes rack for the aprons? I want to build something similiar, but on a smaller scale for my daughter’s room. It would be great for her to have a place to hang all of her play dresses. Thanks! ~Gracie
this should be fun…the only thing I find a bit on the tedious side of having an online shop is the shipping, other than that I LOVE it. So have a great time and I can’t wait to see what you amaze us with!
