goose tour!

I can't believe it...the Goose is ready! If you've been reading along, you'll know that I have been involved in a major expansion for a local children's resale shop, Mama Goose. It looks incredible...I think our town is in for a quite a surprise when we open the doors next week. The windows are still papered so that you can't peek in...but would you like a little preview? Many talented people contributed their time, sweat and creativity to make this store so unique... so come on in...but first admire the new front know how in LOVE I am with galvanized buckets, well take a look at that mother of all buckets (2x2x6 trough from The Tractor Supply Co.)! Ok, now you can check out several interior shots:

1. Tiered table made from recycled wooden crates/stands (going out of business sale) and plywood: featuring local wooden toys made by Gunther Kiel of Wild Apple.2. Local goods made by kiddilidivy.
3. Baby play wall (designed/made by me) using assorted wooden pieces from a local artisan, each piece spins easily and on a differing axis....four sensory frames too!

4.Over sized galvanized magnetic wall...I want one in my home!
5. Book Table: great idea...empty paint cans bolted to the table for secure book it!
6. Galvanized pipe for clothing rack...upcycled old fryer racks suspended from chains to create shelves for things with little and loose pieces. Pin It


  1. oh goodness, this place looks so wonderful! I wish it weren't so far away!

  2. It looks great!! I'll be there on Monday, if I'm allowed to play with the toys you made--not just for the kiddies, are they?

  3. Loooooove the trough. As soon as I saw it I was thinking where it could go in my yard:)

    The space looks so fun and friendly! I would love to shop here! Cheers to your new and improved shop:)

  4. Fabulous shop! If I'm ever in the area, I'll be sure to stop by. I can see that a lot of hard work has been put into this place. I'm sure it will be a huge hit!
