    Lavello Sink Reveal for The Cottage

    As promised when we shared some of the wonderful renovations for The Cottage,  the sink reveal is here! Check out our previous blog post about The Cottage, where we turned this space into a new home for Moon River Spa. The space is working wonderfully for our friend Jenifer Blevins and her business is flourishing. She says her clients love the renovations. We wanted to share the update on the Lavello Sink and how wonderful it looks in the space.  We had a great experience with this company and this project was a perfect addition to the farmhouse style in The Cottage. Because the store counter piece was narrow,  we…

    The Barn by Firehouse Antiques

    Yes, we bought a barn. Firehouse Antiques is expanding and we could not be more excited! About eight years ago, we went to a local estate sale here in New Harmony, IN and the wheels to grow our business really started turning. The family of our gentleman friend held the sale in this amazing old barn just two blocks from our shop. Although eight years ago the timing was not right for his family to sell the property, my husband and I let them know that if they ever sold the barn we were interested. Over the years we have walked our small town’s streets and dreamed of our expansion…
