22 Nov Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving. It’s a time to reflect on the year that was. To sit and ponder all of the blessings that have been bestowed upon us. All of us at The Found Cottage look back on this past year with gratefulness for all of you. It has been a year of growth, a year of ups and downs, a year of learning and also a year of joy, happiness and so, so many good memories. We opened up shop at the new store on January 14 and prayed that you would love it as much as we do. The old store felt safe, small and manageable. We had a lot of anxiety about filling such a big space. But, with the help of our awesome vendors we did it! We pour our hearts and souls into making this a happy place to shop and work. And for us, that’s exactly what it is.
Our vendor space is set up differently at The Found Cottage. Our vendors bring their goods in and drop them off and Liz, Abby and myself style them around the store. We like to make everything flow cohesively so that you can see, through our vignettes, how to style your own home. We think that our vendors are the best in the area. They are a step ahead of the norm and continually bring us new items that are spot on with current trends in the market.
We want to share the names and business names of our vendors so that you can check them out on their IG and Facebook pages. They all are very talented and inspire us to be our best. We know that you will enjoy their pages as much as you have enjoyed ours.
