Good evening to you!  I hope you are well!  I am super excited to announce that the ribbon will be cut on Wednesday,  April 30 at 11:00 AM (EST) and my new online shop found at shoprustyhinge.com will officially be open!  That's right, the shelves will be fully stocked and ready for all your buying pleasure!  Window shoppers welcome too!  I had hoped to have the doors open sooner, but life has been wonderfully busy over here with many irons in the fire.  One being, I recently started a new job at an adorable boutique here in town.  It is going great and I love it!  Now that I am adjusting to my new schedule, I can focus on the next big thing!  Yay!  Thank you very much for being patient with me while I worked this all out.  I can't believe it is almost here!  Below, I am sharing a tiny teaser of what's to come, with much more on Wednesday!

Please mark your calendars and come back for the big day and I would love it if you helped spread the word!  Thank you, THANK YOU again for all of your support!  Truly, none of this is possible without you!

Shop Rusty Hinge

Hello everyone!  How are you?  Spring is just barely showing its face here in northern Michigan.  We have had a long, cold winter, but today is a beautiful and sunny day in the high 30s!  It certainly feels like a heatwave considering the cold temps we have had recently.  I am excited to get outside and into the garden again, but sadly it might be a while yet for me, as it is still covered in deep snow drifts!  Anyhow, I wanted to announce that BIG things are unfolding over here, and I can't wait to fill you in!  One being that SHOP RUSTY HINGE website is finally finished!  I have worked extra hard putting it together the last couple months, and it is ready to go for your viewing pleasure!  I am currently sorting and photographing to soon stock the shelves with antique linens, quilts, ironstone, French treasures, collectibles and architectural salvage, but I want you to get a good feel for the site before the ribbon is cut just in case there are any kinks we need to work out beforehand.  

In case you can't bare to wait and the suspense is killing you, I have shared a tiny sneak peek above of what is coming to the shop!  There is much, much more, but for today I invite you to simply head over to explore the new site and get familiar with it!  My shop address is:  shoprustyhinge.com.

I hope you enjoy and please stay tuned for updates on the shop Grand Opening Coming Soon!
