September Newsletter

Sep1st2017

Greetings!

A warm hello to my followers, friends and new customers!

It’s been a super summer! I hope you’ve all made the most of these beautiful days making memories with family and friends as well as visiting your favourite summer destinations!
 
I’ve had a fabulous summer launching the store, some home events, getting creative with new ideas, visiting with family, working on our home renovations and starting a veggie garden! Murray and I also renewed our wedding vows in Hawaii and adopted a bunny! Plans are being made for the fall season and you may want to know what’s going on at the bee hive!
 

Home Renovations
A common question to me is “how are the renovations going?” I haven’t posted or updated much in social media, but things are moving along! We had to slow down the process since August 2016 but with Fall around the corner we anticipate that we will be able to increase productivity again and work steadily to finish up this amazing project. All is going great and what we have so far has far exceeded my expectations in quality and appearance! As we move forward I will be updating the progress more regularly. The good news is that my shop space is complete and I have a fantastic workspace to enjoy and keep the projects going!
 
Shop News
I have decided for the time being that I will not set up regular shop hours, rather continue to have visitors by appointment. I am very flexible and you can find me most days working on projects at the house. You will likely find me in work clothes and tied back hair but you’re always welcome to stop in. Just notify me by text, phone, email, FB or instagram!
 
 
I am also pleased to give my followers an opportunity to see what items I’ve added to the shop before I pack up and load our trailer for The Prairie Girls Vintage Market on Saturday, September 9th. To view the entire collection, go to www.honeybs.com and check all the categories. I will be adding more pieces daily up until September 8th. There will also be additional pieces only available at the market. So some great surprises are in store! 
 
To inquire on an item, book an appointment and/or make a purchase email me at info@honeybs.com or use the link on the website. Noting the item stock number (HB number) would be most helpful! Items will not be marked sold until payment is received. See below for payment options.
 
Heartfelt thanks for your continued friendship, kindness and encouragement! I am so grateful to be part of creating your beautiful home! Below is the market information once again and please come by and say hello!

Days Away from Opening

Jun14th2017

Good morning all my wonderful friends and followers! A quick note to remind you of Honey B’s opening on Saturday, June 17th! We have a crew here trying to install the deck as quick as we can so we have a place to visit and set out some items. Cutting it close I know! But the weather hasn’t exactly been cooperating 🙁 It will all work out though!

I booked the opening on the same day as The Vintage with Flair market in Bragg Creek which I know may be a difficulty for some of you to attend both, I was unaware at the time! Mine is in the late afternoon Saturday so it could make for a really fun day to go to Flair’s market and then zip over to mine! I hope so! I would certainly do that :))) Who would turn down an entire day of vintage shopping!?

I’m going to have a lot of furniture that I’ve just posted on the website and I’m preparing a “bargain” centre as well where there will be some great deals!

Hope the sun is out and your shopping mode is on! Here’s some pics of the shop to boost your enthusiasm! Also a map to find us!

Saturday, June 17th  1:00-5:00pm Free Admission

Renovation Progress

Jul1st2016

Well we’ve got some really exciting things going on now with the house with the installation of some stunning features. It seems like a long time between posts but the process of making each and every one of these features is time consuming. I really appreciate the team for putting all the effort in that they do…such artists! I love love love every thing about this house!

This is a maple live edge slab that we incorporated onto the counter in the basement. It’s on the side of the dining room and faces over into the family media room. I think I found some great stools to go with the look, they are simple polished nickel round stools that match the light fixture and table base. I haven’t pictured them until I decide for sure but there will be more photos to come.

This isn’t the actual furniture I’m putting in this room but because we sold our other house and are moving into the basement, we put our upstairs furniture in here to live with while the upstairs is completed. Should be another 60 days or so!

The other exciting addition was the install of these stunningly beautiful rustic beams put in the master bedroom. They are from a 100 year old building salvaged in Manitoba, all hand hewn with incredible personality, patina and complete with the worm holes. The crew does a treatment wherein they are cleaned with a spinning brush instrument. Then they were clearcoated to seal and bring out those wonderful colour tones. I can’t stop going upstairs just to admire them over and over.

That’s the current status! There’s lots going on though with tiling in the basement kitchen, installation of sound systems, satellite television and internet. The closets are being constructed and the carpet is going in on Monday next week. Officially July 8th will be our move in date and I can’t wait!
