Open for Business…

Standard

After much prayer, consideration and time I made my new business official. I opened a Facebook page and I registered for a local trade days that is starting up in June. I’ve confirmed out of the 80+ other vendors that only one other person is selling furniture WOOHOO!! I even got one of those square card reader thingys so I can take credit cards 🙂 I have a plethora of emotions running through me…excitement, nerves, fear (doesn’t everyone fear failure?) and did I mention excitement? Casa de Cass Designs is up and running and I’m buckling up for the ride!

I love painting furniture, I adore the thrill of finding great pieces that need to made over. I’m reminded of the Confucius quote that says

Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.

When my family sees a garage full of furniture, I see a wonderland of treasures and I start to obsess over how each and every piece will be painted. I know it sounds crazy but most of the pieces I paint kind of speak to me and tell me what color they should end up. I love that!

Anyway, to help me build my business I’m asking everyone to share my page with anyone and everyone they know. It’s a small thing but I’m hoping to start doing classes and giveaways and in order to do that it is helpful if I have a larger audience.

June 21-23 is my first big “sales” opportunity at the trade days and I’ve secured almost all the furniture I think I need and I’m praying for a sell out event!

These 2 pieces are the first ones I’ve ever gotten that basically said don’t paint me! So they are coming to trade days with me and I will be selling them as is, but offering a paint option in case my buyer wants that.

This is an adorable little wardrobe that I see in a little girls room or a nursery.

This vanity pic was taken by the seller so the clutter you see is NOT MINE!! But aren’t they great pieces? I love love love them. They will be offered at $150 each or $275 for the pair AS IS 🙂
