13 Dec Happy Holidays!
WOW! What a fabulous year 2018 has been! And a Blur! We opened our boutique in Downtown O’Fallon in January and welcomed hundreds of wonderful people to the Peonies and Milk family. We cannot begin to thank everyone for such a warm welcome.
With a New Year on the brink, it’s time for us to reflect on this past year and to make 2019 even better for us and for YOU! This year was filled with lots of firsts as we got a grasp on being in a larger retail space, adding painting classes to our schedule, and expanding our custom painting with more kitchen cabinetry and Marrakech walls. While we have loved every minute, we have learned that we cannot do EVERYTHING, even though we want to! There are simply not enough hours in the day. So, what are a couple of girls to do?
After hours and hours of brainstorming, here’s what we have come up with. We have decided to limit our retail business hours to be able to complete our custom paint jobs in a more timely manner. That’s a great thing for those of you wanting us to paint for you…shorter wait times! We also will be able to work in some much needed time to do our vintage picking, which we have truly missed. So, what will our retail hours look like you ask? We are excited to present:
Peonies and Milk Market Days!!
For four consecutive days each month we will deck out our brick and mortar boutique with uniquely painted furniture, home décor, gifts, vintage goods and more! Each month will have a fun theme that our inventory will be based around. We hope this will become a fun and exciting monthly tradition for you, your friends and your family to get together and share in! Now, get your phone out. Pull out your calendar. SAVE THESE DATES!!! Our first three Peonies and Milk Market Days are: (drumroll please)
Thursday, January 31st – Sunday, February 3rd
Thursday, February 21st – Sunday, February24th
Thursday, March 28th – Sunday, March, 31st
We will be open 6-9 pm Thursday, 10 am-5 pm Friday & Saturday, and 12-3 pm on Sunday.
Outside of these dates you will be able to find us at our store on most days as we are working on our custom projects and preparing for Peonies and Milk Market Days, but our hours will vary, so feel free to contact us any time via Facebook (www.facebook.com/peoniesandmilk) or email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) and schedule an appointment to discuss your custom paint projects or if you would like to purchase paint and paint supplies. And last, but certainly not least, we will continue to offer paint classes! You will be able to sign up for those on our website when the classes are posted in the coming weeks.
Because of your amazing support of our small business, we are blessed to be able to continue with our dream. We are extremely grateful for each and every one of you. For the remainder of 2018 our hours will remain the same and we will continue to run our Year End Holiday Sale! Our last day open will be December 22, 2018 and then we will be off to enjoy some much-needed time with our family. We wish all of you and your families the most joyous season of all. And, cheers to a fabulous New Year with fabulous new vintage finds and fun!
