@ Ruffles & Rust

Even before we moved to the Seattle area, I had heard from my little sister about a delightful little tourist-trap of a town called Snohomish.  Isn’t it just lucky that our new home is only 10 miles from there?

One of our first outings then, naturally had to be to check out all the fun shops that line the main street of town.  There are several that are definitely worth a visit, but one of my favorites is Ruffles & Rust.   So one day when I was feeling particularly brave (it doesn’t happen that often), I asked one of the proprietors if maybe…possibly…if it wasn’t too much trouble…would they be interested in having some of my wares in their shop??  When she said YES, I was on Cloud 9 for the rest of the day!

Although I dropped off a few things (just to test the waters) last week, I had to go back to take a few pictures of what MY things look like in their delightful store!  And of course, I have to share ;-)

Here are a couple of my ever-popular “Biscuits & Gravy” signs…

“Lemonade”’ and “I Love You Like Cupcakes” make an appearance…

Here’s one of my great big beadboard flags

One of my “extra” chalkboards perches up high…

Here’s a “You are the Bubbles to my bath” canvas.  You can’t tell, but “Bubbles” and a few of the bubbles are glitter-i-fied!

 ruffles 042I made two folding tabletop chalkboards like the ones from That’s My Letter.   These turned out so cute; I’m in love!

One thing that made me laugh was seeing my little chalkboard easel next to the Flea Market sign—because I made my own version of it last year!  It made me do a little bit of a double-take!

There were a couple of things that I couldn’t find, and I hope that means they have sold to someone who will love them like I do!

I do love selling through my Etsy shop, but there’s just something about a brick-and-mortar store, you know??  Don’t miss Ruffles & Rust if you’re in the area!

Love your signs I'm sure you will do well. I may just have to make a trip up to Snohomish, I have heard great things about Ruffles & Rust ;)

Hope you do well! I do love having a little shop much more than ETSY...all that packaging and mailing....just when I return from the PO...there would be something ELSE to mail off....my ETSY is totally empty right now...just can't do it! You will do wonderfully! I just know!

Hi Korrie, that's so great! I really like the easel style chalkboard, I'm going to take a look at the instructions. Best of luck to you, and blessings!

That's wonderful to have a place to sale your items. A little advice from someone who knows. Be sure to take inventory of items you place in store and items that are sold. Congratulations.

Congratulations! That would be very exciting. The store looks like I could spend hours in there. Isn't that where Melaine (mysweetsavannah) has some of her items too?
