NEW Trunk Shows from Rosewood Manor & Fabric Flair

This is a week of dual trunk shows in our shop. We just completed hanging a Trunk Show of beautiful designs from Rosewood Manor. One framed piece is more beautiful than the next. Designer Karen Kluba has everything from beautiful floral pieces, wonderful patriotic design, and gorgeous samplers. Something for everyone is included in this show.

We also have a Trunk Show of fabrics from Fabric Flair. A fabric show is a first for us, but having a table filled with linens and even weaves in every imaginable color is a sight to behold – really gets the imagination going!

Make sure to stop by and enjoy these shows.
