First and foremost – we sell paint. That part is pretty obvious but what a lot of our customers don’t realize is that over the years every generation of Rowe Spurling Paint Company has also added their own twist on our inventory. My father-in-law loved fishing so in the 90’s you would find cast nets on our shelves. My mother-in-law enjoyed arts and crafts so she started stocking those. For years, I’ve been trying to fit home decor items into our little shop but since our retail space is limited I couldn’t figure out how to make room for it without taking something else away. Then I had an idea!
On the side of the shop we have a small room which houses our Benjamin Moore colour chip display, Chalk Paint By Annie Sloan and craft items. Behind the wall on the end, there is ANOTHER small room which is currently used for storage. It look some convincing but my hubby finally agreed to turn that old storage space into my little home decor corner.
In my enthusiasm, I have already found vendors and ordered stock (our first order arrives August 29th) even though the renovations to our storage room have not even started! Clearly, patience is not one of my virtues.
So what DID I order for the shelves that don’t exist? Scroll through the items below to check out our new arrivals. If you don’t see them on the sales floor just ask – for obvious reasons most of the items will have a temporary home in our warehouse but we would be happy to grab them for you.
More items will be arriving in September and stay tuned for our holiday decorations coming this Fall!
