Harbor Springs Store Update Featured

It has been a difficult decision, but we have decided to close our store in Harbor Springs. We appreciate our loyal customers who have frequented our sweet store at 117 West Main Street. We will miss seeing you there.

We assure you that we are still here and want to serve you in this ever-changing world of shopping. We are offering several shopping options. Check out our website’s expanded inventory and have your purchase shipped for free.  Schedule a virtual design session with Becky or a curated shopping experience with a staff member who can share current inventory options through Facetime or another format to help you find the perfect gift for yourself or someone else. We also offer curbside pick-up at our stores in Traverse City and Glen Arbor!  Call our headquarters at 231.334.3826 for any of these personalized services.

 

Store Update-May 21st Featured

As our region of Michigan has been allowed to reopen per Governor Whitmer, we wanted to share what you can expect in our locations.

We will be open for in-store shopping in Traverse City and Glen Arbor on May 22.

For the protection of yourself and our staff, we ask that you wear a mask when visiting any of our locations.  If you have forgotten to bring one, we will have masks on hand for your shopping visit.

We will have a capacity limit to follow, so signage will indicate how many customers can shop within a store at one time.

For now, just our Traverse City and Glen Arbor locations will be open. Check back for updates on our Leland location. Our store hours for these two locations are:

Traverse City

Friday, May 22 & Saturday, May 23    10 to 5

Sunday, May 24 and Monday, May 25   CLOSED

Tuesdays through Saturdays   10 to 5  (through June)

Monday, May 25   CLOSED

Tuesdays through Saturdays 10 to 5 (through June)

Mondays are available for custom design appointments with Becky. Please call to schedule.

We will continue to offer curbside service. We know that this new service has become the norm for many stores, and it is very convenient. If that is easy and comfortable for you, just call either location, and we will make it happen!

Our website has an expanded inventory, with new pieces being added every week. See something you like but wondering if there are additional choices? We would love to share more options with you. Give us a call, and we can provide you with a virtual shopping experience.

We are excited to see you all again! We remain steadfast in our efforts to make your shopping experience safe, comfortable and fun.

 

 

Acorn Bread and the Oak Leaf Ring Featured

Meet Lisa. Connoisseur of acorns and acorn bread. One day while scanning our Facebook page, Lisa become acquainted with  our new Forest Floor Impressions collection. As one who embraces nature like Becky, the collection had special meaning for Lisa.

“The acorn has a special place in my home. My family gathers them in our yard, on walks, and friends drop them off by the bag full. We shell acorns while watching football on Sunday or outside together in the park….It is a nut that not only nourishes our bodies but also nourishes relationships and connectedness to the community around us.” Michigan Blue, Oct. 2018

Now, a proud owner of her own Forest Floor oak leaf ring, Lisa has a ready reminder of that which is important to her. “The spirit of our communities live in this ring- creative, resilient, regenerative, and strong.  The oak tree reminds us nature provides everything we need to move through 2020 and beyond.  I’m so glad for Becky and her role in the world- she brings us beauty and hope.”

To learn more about how to harvest your own acorns for acorn bread, check out Lisa’s recipe in Michigan Blue.
