Well we have some good-no Great news! We finally have rented space in a store!!! We have been looking for a very long time. It was harder that it use to be, a spot would open up and the rent was crazy high for a tiny space or the store was in a not-so-good location. I needed to be somewhere as I could no longer do the flea markets due to my knee. So finally after a long grueling search, the most darling of all spots opened up, so we jumped at the chance. Anyway, I am sharing this space with my two friends, Sue and her hubbs Guy of Chilton's Wood Nest, and Rosalie of My Country Cottage Signs. Together we are a great blend of Country and vintage goods! We have created a name that will be used instead of all of our own names, too confusing. We are calling our shop Farmgirls Cottage and we have a cute sheep as our logo. We owe all this to the power of Prayer! God is, as always, Amazing!! With out Him I could do nothing! Its just awesome how it all came together...Just like it was meant to be...all the people involved and how the store came about. Just perfect. But Gods gifts are always perfect!
The Store is called The Rusty Arbor Antique and Garden Shop and is located at
24980 Washington Ave, Murrieta Ca 92562 and they are open Tuesday-Saturday 10-5
Here are a few pics of the store, we are a work in progress. It happened so fast, none of us were really prepared. Sue and Guy had a huge show they were doing and Rosalie is getting ready for her Sugar Plum show, and I just made a huge wholesale order and was whipped out of product...so we had to just put what we could in there and get busy making up some more goods! These pics are just after we set up, we will have more in shortly I'm sure, as the shows are ending and I have new goodies put together! But this will give you a general idea of what it looks like! I hope you have a chance to stop by and see whats new in the shop. We also have a Facebook page for just our shop, so please come follow us Farmgirls and see whats new! We have the back room, that I guess would have been the service porch or kitchen back in the day. The Store is an old cottage style house converted into a shop many years ago...Either way, I just love this store! Darling in every way, lots of other great vendors too. Plus a fresh flower shop with hand made soaps and lotions! The Back Yard will be filled with unique fountains and ponds, with garden plants to purchase!
We are a collective blend of Country Primitive Handmade's and Vintage Farmhouse Goods, we also have a few treasures in there, like the jewelry and a few others things, but it all works together for the shop and makes a great place to find a gift, or decorate your home!
I hope you get a chance to come by!
Thanks so much for reading my blog, it means alot!
Have a most Blessed Day and May God keep you close to Him always!!
Huggs to you from me, Deb
