A store is born

We have been searching for the perfect place to set up shop for a while now. We were looking for an older building- a bit of a fixer upper, and we wanted to find the perfect location. We {finally!} found it. It was built as a residence in 1901 and it has been home to a church, a yoga studio and now our little shop, East Street Home.

The building sits on a hill that overlooks the Farmers Market and in the winter the city piles up all the snow and makes a huge sledding hill. They have ice skating, warming tents and marshmallows. As a person who strongly dislikes winter, this actually sounds perfect!

There are a few Anthropology-ish elements like these doors. Chipped perfection.
... then there is this 90's Kitchenette. Yikes. Don't worry, it's already gone to the curb.

We are working on refinishing the floors, painting and reviving the interior a little... and finding lots of goods. Our home is a balance of old, less-than-perfect pieces mixed with new pieces and our store will be just that. Home away from home.
More updates soon.
