The Shop Is Open!

February 4, 2007

I’m excited to announce a shop I’ve been working on at the request of readers who’ve asked me for tips on music, movies, and books to give as gifts. I could write for hours in reply, but instead, I thought the best way to keep readers in touch with my favorite picks is to simply pull everything together into one neat package.

The Shop Is Open!I went through each corner of my home to inventory what I own, pulling only the best of the best to list in this store. This shop stocks books (art, design, small business, crafts, decorating, travel, organization, sewing, cooking, and more to be added), music, magazines, movies, and so on. I’ll add new items weekly, so check the store as often as you’d like.

I stand behind everything in this shop because I own it; items are 100% decor8 approved based on experience and actual use. Well, with the exception of a few items that are not yet released that I’ve listed.

When you purchase something from my shop, I earn 8.5% of the total, so the earnings are pretty unexciting. But, as an amazon affiliate, it’s nice when a few new books arrive in the mail each year, so I can’t complain. Please don’t purchase anything because you think you’re helping me, purchase it because you really have a genuine interest and will use it and love it.

As you flip through each category, I’m sure you will find many items that we share a common love for. I hope you benefit from, and enjoy, this new amazon shop.

Thanks for looking!

    It’s great to know so many of you share my obsessions. :) I’ve always wanted to be the ‘shop around the corner’ from You’ve Got Mail. Remember Meg’s store? She’d sit and read stories to the children? I’ve dreamt of shop ownership since I was a child. I keep saying someday when I’m settled in a city I love! A design store with a tiny cafe (cupcakes of course!), design and artsy books, children’s books and handmade toys, and lots of beautiful textiles and pillows and ceramics.
