It has been a journey with a vision. A journey that will never end. We had to set a firm date and use this deadline to accomplish enough to allow the public in while we continue to add inventory and fill the shelves.
We needed to insure that we looked good enough and interesting enough for people to want to come back. I think, based on two days worth of comments that we achieved that.
The journey started with an 1840 barn attached to our Vermont home and filled with things – good things!
July 4th found us far from full, particularly in the antiques area, but presentable.
We have worked hard to offer a unique and affordable selection of nice merchandise. We have a large selection under $5. under $10 and under $20.
We have used Artisans for as many non antique items as possible. The more local the better but always a hard working, talented Artisan.
Plenty of nooks and crannies as you circle Shops at Fayrehale
Our neighbor brought down this opening day gift and a nice card. We hang it on the door when we are open
Now to bring some balance back in to our lives. The gardens are much smaller and started a little late this year. We did ship hundreds of chicks around the country. Predators (particularly racoons) have been terrible this year.
We will continue to expand inventory in all areas and fill the shop.
Properly used:) Facebook is a great tool. We encourage you to follow Shops At Fayrehale on Facebook. That is where we make our most regular updates and where we have posted many pictures of our progress in this journey.
If you are in the area, we would love to have you stop.
