Progress is happening! New flooring, new lighting, the new space smells of sawdust and fresh paint. With each box that’s unpacked we’re more and more in love with our new space, basking in its newness. Everything is crisp and clean, thanks to our southern facing windows dousing everything in brightness. Can’t wait to show you! Our re-opening date (May 19th) is fast approaching…

Style inspiration for our new space!

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

Though the shop & studio are a dizzying display of boxes and installation crap, oh, everywhere, our eyes are on the prize. Here’s some of the inspiration behind the new space’s concept, which is currently in production. One day, very soon, we’ll unveil. Just a reminder to everyone, our new address is just across the street at 1818 (in the space where our friends Painted Lady used to be – we’ve pulled a Trading Spaces style move).

Regular business hours will resume May 19th.

Catch you on the filp! Keep popping back in for more details as they evolve!

Welcome to our Blog!

Monday, December 13th, 2010

There are so many great blogs out there in this world, we can’t resist chiming in with ours, to let people into what goes on behind the scenes of our shop Post 27. Because we’re a workspace, not a just store. Ours is a place where creative types of every stripe join forces to create art, connections, design, and think in new ways about home furnishings and accessories. And this is the space where we write about everything that goes into making this business and our community so we can grow and continue making greatness happen, together.

Look for posts on topics covering our events (like the big street festival we throw every October), furniture before & after shots, the occasional house tour, DIY projects, inspiration ideas, and new products and promotions.

Contributing to the blog are Angela, the store’s lead design ninja, and graphic designer & blogger Margot Harrington. You can read more about Angela here and more about Margot here.

OUTPOST is a WordPress hosted blog, designed and coded by yours truly. Many thanks toAsif Ahmed and Justin Stahl for kindly adding to the mix during the coding & construction phase.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for coming. It sure means a lot.

Jack makes a Cameo

Saturday, November 20th, 2010

We’ve incorporated a new system for shooting new products recently. Instead of doing everything behind-the-scenes we’ve got a corner of the store which we’ve been converting to a mini photo studio once a week. It’s all about efficiency really; our space becomes a workshop as well as a store. Customers have been surprisingly receptive to it which is an unintended bonus for us both! Jack, Angela’s German Shepard/terrier/mutt, doesn’t seem to mind either, though he’s never far from the action.
