GRAND OPENING of Urban Farmgirl - the shop!




I have been painting furniture, hunting for amazing vintage finds and working up all the magic I can to pull it all together...all in preparation for the most important dates in my little shop's history. The grand opening weekend!

  Thursday night will be special - the very first shopping night - full of food, fun and giveaways! I do hope you can join us!



In addition to featuring my painted furniture, there shop will be loaded with my favorite vintage finds as well as the work of some of my very favorite bloggers. You will find the most amazing handcrafted jewelry, photography and home goods from around blogland! I am so very honored to have the opportunity to support these incredible women and their craft! 

I have received so many wonderful emails from girls traveling from afar...and from those right here in my hometown that are making the trek to my little shop's debut. I can't wait to put a face with the names I have known for so long and to make new friends right here in my own town! 

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for all the wonderful emails, Facebook & blog comments I have received from every one of you in support of my new adventure. I means more than you will ever know! Whenever I feel moments of doubt or nervousness about what I am doing, I just think of those and it make me confident that this little shop is going to feel the love! 

Hope to see you all on November 29th!

  10. Yay! Can't wait, I live in Rockford and will definitely support your store! My first encounter with Urban Farmgirl was on Etsy. I ordered a couple of necklaces made from scrabble letters, it was an order right before Christmas and you were gracious enough to drop the necklaces off at my house:) unfortunately I was at work and couldn't meet you then. I will be stopping in on Friday Nov. 29 for sure!
