In a New York Minute

Wow!  Almost a month since our last entry and it seems like it passed in the blink of an eye.  My bad.

Without stumbling all over myself apologizing for those who expected to see at least something new here let me show you how the time has been passed...

You all know someone, I'm sure, who has a garage they can't use because its filled with stuff...

Well, our basement at the House had become similarly crowded.  We had a lot of stuff.  Stuff left over from our earliest days when we first took over that shabby chic store known as Simplify.  Stuff that was edited out of the store as we grew into what we are today.  And, though it seemed like a never ending job, we spent a great deal of time going through that stuff and packing it up.  Much of it went to good homes.  Some of it went to a charitable thrift shop.  Now, our basement is wide open and tidy and we are in the process of moving our stock to shelves lining the walls down there.  

Soon, you will be able to venture beyond the kitchen into an expanded ChiChi House.  Our trip to New York played no small role in deciding we needed to expand but we had another, more urgent reason...

Shortly before leaving for New York we fell in love.  We met someone special with a keen eye, a background in design and a knack for breathing new life into old furnishings.  She uses only environmentally friendly products.  She utilizes techniques she has worked hard to master.  Her thoughtful, clever finishing details make a piece shine.  

Her name is Debby and when she is finished with a piece it is something anyone would be proud to display in their home.  Clean.  Modern.  Luxe.  Debby's work will be available exclusively at ChiChi and we want to tell you more about both her and her work so we will feature a piece about her pieces soon, replete with pictures.  If you simply can't stand to wait, drop in to have a look... but do it soon.  Debby's pieces have been moving off the floor and into new homes fairly quickly.

Now, if you'll excuse me...
