    Hello, I am from New York state, a small town northwest of syracuse (way upstate). I am working on plans to start a shop pretty much like yours. I\’m in the beginning stages of learning how to do this, and I\’m hoping to find people like you who would be willing to talk to me about the details involved in turning this idea into a reality like you have done!
    I was doing some research online e and stumbled on your sit; I love your work and your style and wanted to let you know.

    I,too, enjoy finding old pieces of furniture at auctions and estate sales, as well as other unique items, and repurposing them or reinventing them into something new and fresh. I also have an affinity for textures and designs and love old hardwood, using reclaimed wood in a decor mixed with modern pieces etc…

    Anyway, I don\’t have a lot of my items finished yet, and they are in my garage waiting for me to find a larger place where I can bring to life!
    Would you be willing to help a newcomer to this business by teaching me what I\’d need to know to open a shop like hours in my area? Thank you for your time, and again, I just love your work, your shop, and hour style!!!
