Our first day of the Retirement Sale was beyond anything we could have imagined. We cannot say enough about how much we appreciate all you went through for us. We are flabbergasted. Words cannot describe it.
It is with a saddened heart that we report that we will be closing the Good Old Days in a couple months. We have made many friends and relationships with all of our customers and we are so glad we had the opportunity to serve our community in this way for the past 16 years.
We have been thinking of retiring for a while now but this last winter made us realize how much we really want to retire and move on with the next phase of our lives. We are certainly going to miss you, our devoted and steadfast customers who have supported us all these years. You have made the Good Old Days what it is today. Many of you have told us and have written in our comments book that this shop is unlike any other in the Country, and that it is your favorite shop to come to. It is comments like this that have kept us going all these years. It has truly been a great journey. We both learned so much, not only about the trade and business, but also about people.
Our first few workshops have been a huge success. Several of our customers have learned the distressed painting techniques and have taken this knowledge home and went straight to work on many projects. We will be showing you photos of our customer’s work on our new page soon which will be called “Showoff Corner”. So if you have used our paints in your home, please send us your photos to add to our new gallery.
We are now carrying the complete line of Caromal Colours Decorative Finishes which includes Textured Basecoats, RECLAIM Beyond Paint, The Botanicles, and the various tools and accessories. There is a huge BUZZ about this in our community so we want to explain a bit about what we are offering and inform you about this great new product that you can use to transform your home.
Black Friday at the Good Old Days will get you 30% off your purchase of anything Fall related. Also sign up to be included in a $100 gift basket drawing. These are just a couple reasons why you might want to consider the Good Old Days for Black Friday.
When we first opened our shop, I knew we wanted to sell Windsor Chair. We have seen these at all the trade shows we have been attending but didn’t know much about them. So I set about researching Windsor chairs, how they are made. and what to look for in a good chair. To take this even further, I took a week long class and built a chair from scratch. When I say from scratch, I mean from a pile of firewood. No Joke! When I was done with this week-long project I really respected and understood the effort that goes into making one of these chairs.
I have photographed the shop and have put up all the new fall photos on our TOUR pages. Please go there and hit the First Floor, Second Floor, and Side Porch links to see over 100 photos of the shop all decked out for Fall.
