Today I tagged along with the boys to Alabama to an architectural salvage and antiques dealer in Alabama on a buying trip for the Laurel Mercantile (click here to sign up to be the first to know when we open, by the way!) and this place was just as magical as everyone said it would be. Honestly, once we arrived I felt totally ill-prepared for such an amazing buying experience and we left with nothing but the front doors, despite all the beautiful furniture I wanted so badly for my own house because I (of course) never thought to measure for things I might like to get before leaving home.
And then we found the ones. The doors that will be perfect for our store after a fresh coat of paint and new, clear glass.
Now can we all cross our fingers and toes that everything will be ready to open by December?
