Pumpkin Pie Days Antique Show……..

by Eclectic By Design on October 10, 2014

Woo Hoo……. or should that be “BOO” Hoo? After weeks of pricing and polishing, we’re ready for the St. Vrain Historical Society’s Pumpkin Pie Days antique show at the Boulder Valley Fairgrounds this Saturday & Sunday, October 11-12 located in Longmont at the corners of Hover & Nelson Roads. Doors are open 10:00 to 5:00 on Saturday, and 11:00 to 4:00 on Sunday.It’s a really nice show, and we’ve brought out some of our very best pieces (heavy on the primitives this time).  You’ll just have to come out and see all the great fall home décor, primitive cabinets and cupboards, and even some Christmas items mixed in! We’ll post some more pictures from the show if we get the chance.

The BIG news of the day is that Eclectic by Design has opened an online store on the Rubylane marketplace. Hit the link to the right to take you directly to the store!!!! We only have a few items listed currently, but check back often as we plan to add LOTS of great items as we go forward. After lots of research, we felt that Rubylane was the best fit for reaching a broader market for our fantastic, unique, and high end items.

Also be sure to check out our new link to our Facebook page and “LIKE” us. We’ll keep you updated on all of the happenings and events ahead.

And finally, do let us know if there is something special you are looking for to spruce up your home…. Chances are we have one (or two), or we can certainly be on the lookout for you. Until next post, we hope to see you at the Pumpkin Pie Days Show!
