Needed Inspiration!!!

I wanted to share with you an an event that we are attending on May 14th that will be giving us some needed inspiration for Simply Renewed. It has been a long hard winter in Downtown Bremerton. Between long cold rainy days and construction issues we are ready for a breath of fresh Spring air. We are hoping to get that fresh Spring air from the Funky Junk Sisters Vintage Flea Market!

On Friday May 14th Jean Marie and I will be attending a very special semminar with Junk Market Founder Sue Whitney- the original Junk Master. Sue will encourage homeowners at The Funky Junk Sisters Show to salvage flea market finds and unused “junk” to create treasured home furnishings. She knows the ins and outs of making pennies count. Her “junk” style sheds financial constraints associated with bringing new furniture into a home by fabricating unwanted items into re-purposed nostalgia. Sue,co-author of Junk Beautiful, was a contributing editor for "Country Home" magazine and has appeared on the “Today Show” and HGTV’s “Country Style,” where she transforms junk into fun, elegant and functional furniture and home d├ęcor.

It is our hope to walk away from this semminar with a whole bunch of inspiration that we want to share with our customers. More to come in the near future about this exciting event.

Welcome to my Blog for Simply Renewed Antiques!!!

Everyone tells me that I need to start a blog but really it kind of scares me...Will I have enough to write or say???...Would anyone care to read what I write???...Oh well here it goes...I have started a blog and am learning how to function in this world of social networking and media. My name is Peggy and over 5 years ago I opened an Antique Store in Downtown Bremerton, Wa. The store's name is Simply Renewed and after 5+ years and 2 major moves we are now located at the corner of Burwell and Pacific Ave. 301 Pacific Ave. to be exact. We chose to build our business in Downtown Bremerton because of the beautiful place it is and the renewal it is going through. It has been a challenge and we have learned to go with the flow.

Speaking of flow...right now we are in the midst of a sidewalk and road construction project. Nothing can hinder a business more then having construction going on right out in front of you. I'm learning that the flow can throw you something new everyday. Luckily we have our new sidewalks now and are just waiting for the road construction to be completed. This project is teaching me that going with the flow means taking it one day at a time...and keeping a stiff upper lip.

Anyway enough about that day to day stuff. What I hope to post here from time to time is information about my favorite web sites, events and news related to Antiques, Junking and Collectibles. News about Downtown Bremerton and Simply Renewed. And from time to time I will probably ramble on about other things that are important to me and my dream in Downtown Bremerton...including sometimes that boring day to day stuff. I hope that if you are following my ramblings that you are getting some good information out of it and enjoy this blog. Thanks, Peggy
