Happenings at Factory South

By |September 9th, 2016|

It’s been a hot minute since we talked about Factory South.

We opened the store in April 2015 and this, if you remember, is what it looked like…

We moved things around here and there, but overall it maintained the same feel and style.  As time passed, we decided to sell the brand to the folks I’m working […]

Factory South Shop Displays

By |March 3rd, 2016|

It’s been a while since I shared any displays at our second location, Factory South.  I’m in and out of there once a week or so, and I still love the way it looks when I walk in.  That’s the fun thing about this brand for me.  It feels so much like perfectly imperfect, but […]

Market on Chapel Hill Displays

By |November 3rd, 2015|

I realize I’m a little late on this post since the Market was a few weeks ago.

Alright, maybe more than a little late.

Had a lot of life going on lately, and we’ve been busy busting out projects at both stores.  The Market is one of our favorite events of the year..we dig the day and […]

The Market on Chapel Hill: Antique Hall Cabinet

By |September 22nd, 2015|

Well, we’re in high gear for The Market on Chapel Hill, and have (yikes) a little less than two weeks to get everything loaded in the truck and on the way to Pike Road.

Most of the pieces we’ve found this year needed full overhauls, but this antique cabinet just needed a little hemp oil on […]

Planning a Creative Retreat

By |July 23rd, 2015|

Well we are back from our Creative Retreat. This one was a little different than the last.

Last year’s Creative Retreat, we spent a ton of time on customer quality service and infusing magic into our business, and lots of energy defining our styles individually and as a brand.  And of course we had lots of […]

Behind the Scenes at Factory South

By |June 23rd, 2015|

To say that it’s been busy since opening Factory South is an understatement.

We’re running back and forth between two stores, and I have no expectations that will end anytime soon.  It’s a lot to juggle, setting up the new business and running both of our current stores in Troy.  Then there’s the blog, and online store […]

Factory South: Shop Displays

By |April 8th, 2015|

Things are slowly settling down since our opening last week of Factory South, our new sister/brother store.

It was a whirlwind week for sure, setting up late the night before our soft opening on Wednesday morning.  By the time the doors opened up at 7 a.m., my feet were already screaming and my eyes were on […]

FS Grand Opening Details (& a store sneak peek)

By |March 29th, 2015|

If you would have told me five years ago that I would be a store owner, a blog/book writer, and run an online store, I’m not sure I would have believed you.  If you had told me that writing that blog would lead to all it has, I certainly wouldn’t.

After a couple of years of […]

Factory South

By |March 9th, 2015|

I’ve hinted.  And we’ve announced it on Instagram.

But if you haven’t heard, we are opening a new shop in Opelika, Alabama.

Factory South will be a totally new concept, a little bit of Perfectly Imperfect mixed with a little bit of Cotton Creek.

We wanted to create a lifestyle brand that brings all the things we love […]
