Here's the scoop...Candle Shed Effect...

 We've opened a second location
in the historic downtown of
Muscatine, Iowa...the pearl button
capital of the world, this will be our
permanent location when our current
lease is up.

 the old downtown is seeing another
revival and we want to be in on the fun,
and get a space while some are still available...
there's a lot of city planning going on,
more renovations and much renewed interest...
yippee...

fun stuff, some from the old store,
most are new, but oddities n such will
still be our theme...this ain't yo momma's
ol' antique store...

 garden stuff n more stuff...

 fun lil' projects here and there...

Piper is carrying a line of funky purses,
many new styles in stock...

lots of painted pieces...n rust...
n birdhouses...

the beginnings of a fully stocked
candle shop...

old chippy pieces
n creepy old dolls...

wainscoted cupboard holds the
Lucky 13 t-shirts out of California,
we have the only market in Iowa

 fun pieces around every corner...

 men's and women's...cool designs...

AND soap, soap, soap...only the beginning,
many more scents coming...

Now you know why I haven't been around...
and with the weather so crappy
for so long and unable to garden...yet...
I've been way occupied elsewhere
and with a late frost predicted, guess
the garden will be stalled again...sigh!
And did I mention all the rain...GEESH!!!

No surprise...the place is lookin good! Love the painted floors and neutral walls. The white dining set, buffet top and gold accesories grouped together is so good. And the grey desk is killer!

I am so glad I got to visit the new location. What a great space. All of my treasures look fabulous and I love my new, chippy black dresser that I see every time I pass through my foyer!! XOXOXO

Sharon, So glad you are getting your own place. Looks like you have lots to chose from. Many different items...not run of the mill stuff. :):) One day, I'll get to come to your town...I'll drop by the shop. xoxo,Susie

I was strolling through downtown Muscatine specifically looking for a candle shop and came across Candle Shed Effect. Not only did they have the most amazing smelling candles but they had fun and interesting things as well. The owners were exceptionally pleasant. I will definitely let others know and be a return customer. Thank You!!
