Hi to all out there in the blog world! I am going to share the pics of my latest items I received from the Paris Flea Markets. As I hold them in my hands and touch them, smell them, and imagine the history behind each piece I feel honored to be able to hold them. I do have them for sale in my boutique, although I will enjoy them until they find another home that appreciates the history behind them. I do not clean away the patina or the age as that is part of what I love about antiques. I am sure that some will clean them up and polish them to give them new life although while they are with me they will hold the life they have lived.

Please enjoy - :)

Happy Sunday to every one!
Just popping in to say hello.
We had a beautiful and warm Saturday and now Sunday is a tad raining and overcast. 
No sun in the PNW skies today. 
I have been rearranging the Boutique today as I have a hard time looking at things in the same place for more than a few days. 
I love to rearrange and spice things up, I get great satisfaction when someone comes in and compliments me on my displays :)

Here are two sizes of mirrored trays I have only a few left.
They make a great gift and the Holidays are approaching.
They go for a set at $45.00
Or the small one is $21.00 10" X 4"
And the large one is $34.00 (appx 11 1/2" X 6 1/2")
The have an etched design on the four edges.

Back to Blogging from Amore

I have been sooo busy growing my first brick and mortar store that I have not been on here to Blog since last year! WOW where does the time go?
I have had the best year learning the ins and outs of owning your own business and there is a lot to learn!
The first thing is that you need your families support and understanding as you really do not have any free time anymore :)
I am blessed to say that I have had the best support group ever!!
Hugs and love to my special family and friends, thank you from the bottom of my heart and soul!
I am going to try my best to do a quick Blog every day and I more detailed one on Sundays.
I would love to know what inspires you to follow your dreams.

New Reusable Cloth Bags with Paris Themed Pictures
I have four prints to choose from and will be adding more in the fall.
They are a great buy at only $12.99 per bag

Hi to anyone who sees this. I am finally almost caught back up from opening a new store and trying to find that balance between owning your own store and home life, which seems to have taken a back seat in my life!
I love my boutique and invite you to stop by anytime you are in the Tacoma, WA area.
I have many wonderful artist on consignment that make the boutique so wonderful!
I am trying to build up my blog followers so I can start to offer giveaways.
Please share this post with your family and friends and ask them to follow me
Have a great week

Amore Artisan Boutique opens with a bang!

Bonjour, to all my sweet patient friends and new friends I meet along my journey. As most of you know I have had a dream to have my own store, I thought it was a dream I would never have in this lifetime. Well God (and mom when she went to heaven last year, I am sure she was behind this) had a different plan for me and made my dream come true! I lost my job last October due to no reason other than it must have been God’s plan. I have worked since I was 12 babysitting then when I turned 16 I entered the medical field and until last October have always had a job, being 57 I was very scared as to my future and if I would get a job or not , as you know it is a tough time for many in this economy. I went on unemployment and was put into a program with schooling and a personal advisor to help me start my own business, it has been a very exciting time for me and I am thankful for the teacher I choose as he is wonderful along with the support I receive from the other students in the class.

I had a friend who owned a store and rented a space on Proctor Street in Tacoma, she decided to close her doors on December 31, 2011 and this is where my new journey starts. I was able with the help of my teacher to write a business proposal and get her spot to lease. I have several local artists on consignment in my store and bring in new artists almost daily. This is so much fun as I love to meet people and help them; I am such a social butterfly.

I am just now getting to a point where I am able to post to my store’s Blog. FB and soon will have items on my website it has been a lot of 18 – 20 hour days getting set up and ready to open, then Valentine’s day hit and was a great success J.
Please enjoy my pictures from begining to end:

I hope you will like my FB page and visit my blog often as I grow and make changes.

Thanks to all of you who have stood behind me and supported me as I enter into a new journey in life.
au revoir
