Are you ready for the exciting news? This piece, and a few others, will be at the Carver Junk Company in Carver, Minnesota this weekend!! This is a newer occasional shop in Carver and they have amazing inventory! The owners are super nice and I'm going to be consigning pieces at their shop! So, if you are in the area, please stop in. If you aren't in the area, you can still follow them on Facebook
I'll be back later this week with another piece....2 pieces in one week! Gasp! I love it!
