Welcome to 2013

Every year Surroundings closes its doors between Christmas and New Years. This gives me the opportunity to come in over the holidays, repaint, re-merchandise, and sometimes move the cash desk again! I think this could be the 8th time I moved the cash desk.

For my regular clientele you will notice the store has been painted in Benjamin Moore's Mountain Peak White. The furniture really pops. The antique gray floors also sing with the new white background.

Vroom Vroom

It is a 1950's soap box racer. Fun. I found the racer a few months ago in several pieces. It now sits proudly up for sale in the store $885.00. Yes, it has steering, and No, there are no brakes. I love the wheels, they most likely came from an old pram. A lot of love went into making this racer back in its day.

Now You See It, Now You Don't

This beautiful Cane back sofa sold the first day on the floor (price $1800). The most difficult part of maintaining the web-site is sometimes the stock sells before I even get a photo. My apologies to all my Vancouver clients, who I know wish they could see more on the site. The reality is, I can give people a sample of the kinds of furniture that you will see in Surroundings, and a price point for future reference.
