Fabulous News

This is a sad but very exciting blog post for Three Shabby Chicks. Because of Marlo being blessed with a new baby, she had to decide to take a break from the Shabby Chicks, but little did we know that I, Robin, would stumble upon a path least expected last summer. Some of you know, but many don't that I am opening a clothing boutique, called Apricot Lane at Zona Rosa in Kansas City and I am set to open this May! Hence, why I am just now getting to the blog for probably the final post on Three Shabby Chicks blog, but I will have a new blog and website for Apricot Lane. and website now under construction, but will be up soon.

Niki is actually joining me as my full time manager, which makes me very blessed. For those that think I am crazy, I may be, but Apricot Lane is a fabulous franchised clothing boutique that has a hugely wonderful reputation and has had much success. It is not your typical franchise, because i am allowed to customize my store to me and my clients, which means I will not only have fabulous hip fashions, jewelry, purses, and accessories for hip chicks of all ages, (a true mom and daughter shopping experience) but I will continue to have jewelry made from vintage pieces from wonderful local artists, AND because i just can't give up junking, I will still be bringing in great flea market finds for your home and garden. It will be a fun, truly unique shopping experience for everyone and the plus for you and me, is that it is all in one place.
We began construction in February- check out the pics!
I will be sending out my new blog and website info as soon as it is ready to go!
Thanks so much for all of your support for the Three Shabby Chicks,
i hope you can come and visit us at Zona Rosa!
Love, Robin, Niki, and Marlo

Check out the construction pics:

Hanging fabulous antique ceiling tin I got from Kelly Littman at Farmstead!
ceiling tin is hung- it looks so awesome!
walls are fauxed, slat wall is hung- it's getting there!
the dressing rooms are so fun- can't wait for you to see them!
Still have flooring, chandeliers, cash wrap counters and all the displays that will hopefully make this boutique a unique and fun shopping experience.

Back from Minnesota and Finally back to the Blog

We are back and after a month back home, I think we finally feel energized again.

We had Vintage Market and then 2 days later, left for Junk Bonanza in Minnesota. We filled a 16 ft trailer and hauled our shabby finds to this amazing show. It was a lot of work, but we had a lot of fun and met a lot of great women who had some really fabulous stuff. We definitely can't wait to go back next and shop and really see the great city of Minneapolis.

I know you want to see pictures, so here we go

The first pics are of our space. As you can tell we did a Gray, white, & black theme for this show. It went over very well, Everyone gave us high compliments on our space, including Ki.
Thanks, Ki! we appreciate you letting us be a part of this wonderful show and it was great to meet you and all the Minnesota chicks.

One thing we learned, is that anything galvanized is in!

We met some great ladies. This is Dawn and she was selling like crazy. She had great stuff at a great price, so of course, I had to buy some things from her:) Her store is called store-house in Blue Earth, MN.

Julie and Brenda from JB Knacker. What great girls. We loved their space. You have to check out their store. And, they are from Iowa.

Some other great spaces! We were in awe of all the fabulous stuff! We want to, have to, go back and shop next year!


Wow, Hunt and Gather! They had some fabulous stuff and a huge space.

I cannot remember who this was, but she had these amazing doors and entry way with these amazing hanging baskets. LOVED IT!

We also met the most awesome girls, and I am so sad I don't have pics. But you can go to their blog and read and see all about them the Iowa Junk Gypsies. Anita needs to forget junking and go into stand up comedy. She had us rolling at dinner one night!

Also, A new magazine is the works Flea Market Style and it looks very exciting. Can't wait for the first issue and we also had the pleasure of meeting Heather Bullard, you have to check out her blog and website too!

Hope you enjoyed the pictures!
