top_secretCan you keep a secret? Good! Neither can I…

Cottage Chic Resale is adding a WHOLE NEW INVENTORY! I would tell you but…I can’t.

So-o-o many people have asked me to carry this, to lend my fabulous styling, to bring all that to this…that I finally said YES. I am so excited to be able to offer this new inventory and can’t wait for you to see how this FITS into the shop.

Coming in TWO WEEKS! Watch your email for hints and sneak peeks.


Fall – Winter Hours…Painting Class…Are you in?

Fall/Winter Hours

Yup…it’s that time of year on Cape Cod.
We all take a deep breath and try to pull ourselves together
from the hustle and bustle of the summer.

We love our summer visitors and are sad to see them leave.

But on the other hand,
it’s REALLY sweet to be able to take left turns again!

So…for all you summer folks,
we look forward to seeing you when you return.

For all you year-rounders
who have been a-scared to venture out,
it’s safe to come out and play again.

Chalk Paint and Parties OH MY

I can’t believe that it’s SEPTEMBER! Where did the summer go?

Time for a few announcements…

Time to say bu-bye to Vintage Chic Chalk paint (cue the trumpet playing Taps).

The bad news: They are now out of business so I have limited remaining (hoarded??) stock

The good news: IT’S ALL ON SALE! September 14 – September 20 – 40% OFF September 21 until it’s all gone – 50% OFF

It’s still a great paint. Come in and get a bah-gin on my remaining stock. Some fav colors, some funky colors. At these prices it’s okay to try something different!

Hello to my NEW chalk paint

Heirloom Traditions Paint

50 Shades of Paint - 10 Colors of Wax

Come see the luscious new colors, the silky, gorgeous waxes in 10 colors. I have started using it and it really is a great paint. While I am sad to see Vintage Chic go away, believe me I tested several brands before I found (and loved) Heirloom Traditions.

Party on Main Street Hyannis

Painting Class UPDATES

Wow! That’s all I can say!

My painting classes are selling out and I have to add new dates! Everyone asked for a Saturday class (I think the idea of mixing paint with wine did it…)…you asked….we arranged! I added a Chalk Paint 101 class on February 26 which was originally going to be a Wax Class…but more people are signing up for the basic class. Continue reading

Painting Classes! Or…A reason to go out with the girls, have snacks, and get a little messy!

So-o-o many of my customers have asked me how to use chalk paint that I decided to offer classes!

If you’ve been into my store, you’ve seen the buttery, soft sheen that chalk paint brings to furniture. I LOVE the way it refreshes and revives old furniture.So many customers already have perfectly good furniture at home – Grandma’s side table, Aunt Loo’s bureau – but the dark wood just does not go with their decor.

You KNOW it would look FAB with just a swipe of paint – but you don’t know where to start.

Ta-da! Continue reading
