Capital Style :

Capital Style :

Capital Style is a hip new magazine everyone is buzzing about.
We are excited that they chose to re-introduce the Powell shopping, eating scene into this month's issue.

I'm sure Bloomsbury Loft is one of their favorite places to shop and experience fresh new ideas. I know it's mine. Even though I'm in and out often, I feel so much inspiration from the creativity blossoming there.

Show and Tell

Customer work room

Hi! I am the girl who bought the sewing storage ottoman that you covered in Amy Butler fabric! I thought you might like to see how it fits into the sewing room that I made in an unfinished part of my basement. I also attached some pictures of some of the things that have come out of my sewing room. You will probably see a few things that have come out of your store, too! ;)

What a beautiful space to create in.
Thanks for sharing Jennifer

Fun in the workshop

What a great way to start the day.....learning something new.
Our students had fun making circus flags in this Bloomsbury workshop.

We always like to have cookies and milk. It keeps the creativity flowing.

These flags are great for celebrating anything from a picnic to a birthday party to just adding fun to your space. Once you get's hard to stop.

Our next scheduled class is Thursday evening.
Throw pillow re-do. We'll recover one of your pillows using any of our great fabrics.
call if you'd like to sign up.
Next week......... Celebration Crowns
Personalize a unique keepsake for a special occasion.
Birthday for any age "princess", baby shower, wedding shower...

More great finds...

All three of us loved the color of this server.
A strong color that makes this piece dramatic... love it.
We need to use this color on a piece of furniture soon.

I could not pass up this tray of trinkets. Metals, dice, buttons, beads...
It has so many fun little treasures.
I'll be dipping into this for many projects to come.

Check out the legs and the beautifully curved back....
It's hard to part with things like this.

These two chairs are staying with me.... So cute on our deck. And comfy too.
I bought the iron table base at a flea market a few years ago not knowing what I could use for a top. Finally, this tray found it's way outside and it's perfect.
So fun when things come together like that.
And so much more pleasing than buying everything new.

Columbus Alive : Window Shopping: Bloomsbury Loft

Columbus Alive : Window Shopping: Bloomsbury Loft

Shopping Spree....(with a buget)

We had so much fun shopping yesterday!! The weather was perfect and the treasures were everywhere.
There's just nothing like the thrill of a great flea market. Not knowing what exactly your looking for... but the complete thrill when you know you've stumbled on something awesome.

Like these chairs for example. I'm going to cover them with some great fabric and they will be beautiful on the porch at the shop.

These drawers are so cool with the numbers on the side. Beth snatched this awesome lamp. The color is "sweet"

Shopping with friends who share your passion is the best!
more to come....

Fun at the Market

The weekend Powll Street Market was great!

It was so nice to see so many people stop in.

Who doesn't love a day of treasure hunting?

These girls just couldn't be stopped...

I guess when your opening a new shop, lots of "hunting" is required.

Katie and friends and such a fun trio!

And the great deals aren't over....We have furniture and accessories ready for new homes...stop in and check it out.

You've got mail...

A Bloomsbury newsletter will be in you mailbox soon.
