Was I telling a little white lie on my last post?... I said I would be posting pics soon... is 6 months later soon? I've been so busy setting up shop that I haven't had any time for my poor little blog. I've also been busy decluttering & organizing my studio so when I finally find time to create I'm ready to go. I would love to show you some pics but it's still quite messy, very much NOT like those lovely studios in one of my fave magazines "Where Women Create". One of my dreams is to someday have a studio that looks like it jumped out of the pages of the magazine but I digress... here after all this time are the pics of the transformation of the building I TADA'd into la TaDa! vintage boutique & creative studio. check it out!
Well my blog & shop are not quite ready but I'm so excited about my shop opening I just couldn't wait to let you know all about my dream come true!
After dreaming about opening my own little boutique for at least 20 years, well actually more but I don't want to date myself, I'm finally doing it and I couldn't be more thrilled, excited, nervous etc. etc. etc. I'm still in the renovation process so here are some "before" pics. Check back soon to see a delightful difference in the "after" pics.
la TaDa! vintage boutique & creative studio, located on main street in Coaldale, Alberta is an inspiring place to shop and carries a variety of decorating styles including my personal faves Scandinavian, farmhouse glam, pretty primitive, country cottage and of course shabby chic. I am pleased to be offering vintage finds, home decor, gift-ware, jewelry, aromatherapy, lovely books & magazines for your home, garden & life! You will also find one of a kind handmade creations, unique & interesting repurposed pieces, art & handcrafted goods created by myself and other artisans. I love to support local artists & businesses, helping to keep employment here in North America so if you're an artisan looking for a venue to showcase your creations please ring me at 403-393-1525 or email me.
Do you have any tired, old furniture, decor, or vintage pieces that you still love but they need to be gussied up? la TaDa! offers repurposing & restyling services to give the out dated or boring new life and style. I will also be taking antiques/collectibles on consignment so please get in touch with me if you're interested.
I'm super excited to announce that I will be carrying the fabulous Annie Sloan Chalk Paints, an amazing product that can do in one step what usually takes three. Non-toxic, great coverage and a range of beautiful colours, it is a wonderful new tool I am so pleased to share with you. la TaDa! will be having the first of many Annie Sloan workshops with the lovely Tara Lauren from Lauren Lane Decor who loves do-it-yourself and has a passion for bringing old furniture/treasures back to life. She has a wealth of knowledge to share with us at the workshop. Classes are from 10am to 5pm and include materials & lunch. The first workshop is planned for Saturday, March 3rd.
See you at the grand opening Thursday, March 1st, 2012. Hours are Tuesday to Saturday 11am to 6pm.
