December 14, 2013

Wow! Today has been a long time coming!

Pretty Things & Cool Stuff - the little shop at the corner of Discovery & DELIGHT is open!

You can find our story right here

We still have goods to add to our Collections, and there is tweaking to be done. But we are very excited to get started!

We hope you will discover something special for you or for someone special —''tis the season! Pretty Things & Cool Stuff can be a starting point for a new path of discovery , or it can help you travel farther down an existing one. Especially if you let us know!

If you are interested in photography, jazz (a new path of discovery for me, created with a little help from my musician friends!), cooking with kids, chocolate, pies, original art, or handcrafted and vintage jewelry, we have some special selections just for you,  Want to go some place - in person or in your imagination? Well, we can help you travel to England, including Downton Abbey and London (several of the items came directly from London), New Mexico and New York City.

And this is just the beginning! We will be putting up more goodies, so check back often!

Be sure to sign up for our email list and connect with us on our social channels - postings coming soon! You can find all of these in the footer at the bottom of this page.

AND, we want to hear what you would like to see at Pretty Things & Cool Stuff. I love the suggestions we had already gotten today. Thanks so much, folks!

You can email selection suggestions — and suggestions about anything else — to customercare"AT" prettythingsandcoolstuff "DOT" com ( replace "AT" and "DOT" with the appropriate symbols).

In this blog we will share backstories of items in the shop, as well as profiles of the artists and artisans whose work we carry. We also will share observations along the way about this new journey and and adventure we are on.

We also will look forward to your comments and welcome any questions you may have.

Thanks so much for checking us out, and we look forward to having you come back often and to sharing discoveries with you that bring DELIGHT!
