Just wanted to show one of my favorite stores here in town.
This store belongs to our friends, Gus and Alyson.
They refinish furniture, both painted and stained, and do picture framing.
They have a coupon for a free candle for the month of October, 2006, if you happen to get their way. You do have to be able to walk into the store.
These photographs have a lot of detail; if you click on them, they will get bigger so that you can see.
Gus and Alyson are a real nice couple; he refinishes the furniture, and she does the decorative paintings on it.
If you look at the photos in their larger form, you will see sun flowers, roosters, roses and other items she has painted on the furniture.
I actually have lots of furniture in my house that has either been restored by them, painted by them, or purchased from them. Tomorrow I think I will post an example of how good Gus is at fixing old furniture that has definitely seen better days. You will not believe your eyes. It is amazing what one person can do to make something broken and ugly into something functional and beautiful again.
They also frame artwork and needlework at very good prices. It is a very cute store with nice owners; if you are in this part of the world check them out.
