Lot’s of new stuff, folks. And be prepared for even more soon. There are two ‘Emilys’. The one that hoards things and the one that purges things. I’m in SEVERE purging mode with boxes and boxes of stuff being sent over to the studio right now. I’m suffering from severe clutter body, and I’m basically getting rid of 50% of what I own. Many things for the flea, yes, but many for a large studio garage sale that is coming up (more info soon, but mark your calendars for September 19th). I promise you that YOU (and all my friends/family/assistants) will LOVE ‘Purging Emily’ far more than ‘Hoarding Emily’. When I want stuff gone, I want it gone. Again, more info later. I’m just too excited about the amount of stuff that I soon won’t have to not talk about it.
Meanwhile The Flea needs some serious replenishing. I had no idea how successful it would be. So we are adding all of these things on Monday (sorry, prices aren’t up yet) and then I need to plan a few shopping days soon to really stock up and make it full again. My goal of manipulating my career to be able to thrift shop all day is finally happening.
I am curious though what you guys want the most on The Flea? The small furniture doesn’t seem to be selling (so it’s going up for sale at the studio sale), but everything else is going. The art seems to be the #1 thing probably because original artwork is just so difficult to find and I have a lot of it. So I’ll definitely keep that going, but as I’m shopping if you guys have any more requests (lighting? Quirky accessories? Pillows?) let me know. Speaking of pillows, I have a ton of vintage fabric that I’ve been debating just getting made into pillows for a while so maybe I’ll try that and see how it goes. Lots of cozy vintage plaids, florals and of course indigos.
Let me know your thoughts. And Happy Labor Day.
P.S. For all of those of you who pre-ordered the book yesterday, THANK YOU. It jumped me into #1 bestselling in four different categories on Amazon which changes daily but that still makes me feel really good.
