Where to begin.....

If you don't follow us on Facebook, you may not know what we've all been up to and what has kept us running in all different directions.
Oh where to begin....

Marilyn's beautiful home was recently featured in the latest issue of Jean de Arc Magazine. If you haven't seen it already.... run out and buy it because you won't want to miss it!
 It's stunning!!

Karen has started up her own business within "The Mess" called L.A. Junk Antiques.  Karen is super excited about her new venture!  Be sure to follow L.A. Junk on Facebook for updates on events, sales and new pieces she's bringing into the store. We're all very excited for Karen, and can't wait to watch as her talents unfold on her site. 

Victoria has something exciting to share as well.  She has created a beautiful new website, blog and facebook page featuring her business within "The Mess"... Victoria Stoehr Designs!!  She did a wonderful job and we're all really happy for her!!  Be sure to visit her website featuring an online store filled with beautiful treasures.

Two weeks ago, you may have noticed we were closed, as we were Vendors at the famous and ever growing Remnants of the Past Show!!  What an amazing weekend, filled with friends, clients from near and far and so many talented dealers in one place.  Judy Watkins and her Team provided us all with an extraordinary show.  If you weren't able to attend this last show be sure to head over to her link and read all about it and receive updates on the next show tentatively planned for June 3rd and 4th at The Madonna Inn.

After we all returned and settled back into the store the Winter Issue of Romantic Country Magazine hit the newsstands.  What an honor to have my story be told in this national publication!  If you haven't seen the article yet, be sure to grab a copy. It's on newsstands until January.

This Thursday marks the 1 Year Anniversary for A Beautiful Mess.  Please tune in to the Blog and Facebook page for a very special Anniversary post and a Giveaway you won't want to miss!

Until then...... Have a wonderful week!!

  4. Hi- Your shop is on our "list" of places we must visit! I live in the Pasadena area so it is a day trip with all the traffic:) Looking forward to coming one of these days. It has to fit in after pick up and before drop off.


  5. Kymberley, Such exciting news for all of you ladies! I am so glad that my husband and I were able to visit your store back in Febuary. Congratulations on your one year Anniversary. We also have some exciting news, we are opening our own store in December. It has been watching you and others that has given me the confidence to go ahead with my own dreams. See you around, Terry

  6. I remember your opening like it was yesterday... time really flies!! Marcy
