2217 South Main Street, Joplin, MO
If you follow us on Facebook, stop in regularly, or heard from the news from your friends, you probably know we are moving to the middle of town. This move will be official by April 3rd, however, with the phone transfer not going so quickly, don't give up if you try to call!
Why are we leaving our large location?
Many people have immediately asked "where are you going" when they hear we are relocating. If we've seemed hesitant to blurt out the address it's because we don't want to mislead people into thinking the new location will operate like a retail establishment. A big part of moving to the 32nd street location was to carry more inventory. However, you need a lot of traffic to move a lot of inventory, and sadly, the customer base hasn't increased enough to validate the larger overhead.
What will you have at the new location?
All of our fabric samples, furniture lines, wallpaper companies, window covering vendors, or any custom orders will be making the move with us. Also, for those of you who love Trapp Candles and Beatriz Ball metal ware, you'll still be able to stop in and purchase those items along with a few decorative pieces you see in the windows!! If you see the "OPEN" sign, come on it. If you don't, please give us a call and we'll let you know when we will be there!
Why not just keep regular hours?
This is the biggest advantage to our clients---making appointments easier for you! By not posting "hours" we will not have the worry of standing behind a counter all day, but instead be more available to make appointments to meet in our client's homes or at the shop. We love the one-on-one working relationships we have with our customers, and whether it's choosing wallpaper, paint colors, drapery, blinds, shutters, sofa or chairs, being more accessible has become even more important over the past 10 years. We think our service counts for a lot---especially in these times of so much "internet buying". Sometimes you just need some expert advice and fresh ideas! That's basically been our tagline since we started business.
Won't you miss your big store?
Yes and no.......
We always felt a great deal of pride in making our shop (either large or small) look great for every season and after every market buying trip. The work and time involved in doing this can at times be overwhelming, and very time consuming. We will also miss seeing the variety of people who came by and gave us an insight into their lives, some of you are so inspiring! Our hope is you'll find us at 2217 S. Main Street with our "OPEN" sign turned out, or call to say "hey, I'm coming by tomorrow afternoon, will you be there?". We sure don't want to lose touch, then we would be sad!
Does this put you any closer to Texas??? :^)
I'm glad you are keeping "my" candles and I love the metalware as well! I just didn't know you sold it....
I am getting off early today to go home and start the "winter to summer" house shift...
You wanna' come help???
Good luck in your new location and BIG blessings to both of you,
Hey Jaybird, I meant to respond to your note MUCH earlier! We are enjoying the location and very busy with a new construction! We still need to add some wallpaper and hang our window treatment samples, but other than that, it's felt like home here! I guess now you are back to transitioning to "summer to winter"!!! Nice to hear from you.
