Through a tiny doorway in the back of our store, there lies an entire other space piled high with old paintings, smalls, old barn doors--a bit of an overflow from the constantly curated main space. This last week, we decided to take to the store's caboose and inspired by more education friendly finds, made our own schoolhouse for every size, age & shape. We collected all the desks, every globe and pull down map we had scattered about, and pulled out collectibles from dark drawers. What resulted we couldn't be happier with! As the new year begins and students head back after the holidays, we feel ready to start new hobbies, reinstate good habits, and resolve to start thinking smarter, not harder about life in 2015.
