I made a quick trip to the grocery store tonight for a few items and just as I was getting ready to checkout I remembered one more very important item.
A fabulous item I have been waiting six months for, so I backtracked through the entire store until I came upon the magazine aisle.
I spotted it right away, right there on the center shelf in all it's glory, just waiting for me. I reached out my hand, swooped it up and checked the date. The small print right above the bar code read March 2012, this was it!
In no time at all, I was flipping through the slippery, cool pages of this brand new magazine, and I quickly found the two page spread entitled, Things we love. Oh it was so pretty, clean, crisp and so colorful. My eyes darted back and forth and right there, tucked in the lower left corner of page 33, two beautiful vintage step stools handcrafted by our good friends John and Brenda; the owners of Circle Creek Home.
I was so excited and the layout was just stunning.
.......and here is a close up.
How cool is that?
They make a few different styles of step stools including a two step and have a range of color options.
When I first met John and Brenda they both had full time jobs and over the past few years I have seen them cut back on working outside their home to create and brand their own company, Circle Creek Home. They have an amazing Etsy shop, space in the very successful Ruffles and
Rust Square in Snohomish and their products are featured in many home and garden shops throughout nd now national recognition in a major magazine. Washington; a
I love to see people do what they love and succeed at it.
As I was standing in the grocery aisle I took a photo with my phone and sent it to them with a quick congratulatory message. A few moments later a, thank you, text came over stating they have already seen a huge increase in orders.
Aside from these gorgeous step stools, they re-finish furniture, handcraft beautiful soap and have a great selection of the latest one of a kind vintage finds. Circle Creek Home is not just a business either it is a lifestyle brand, and they are living it. Their home is styled just like their space at Ruffles and Rust Square. They drive a 1983 woody Jeep Wagoneer, and when they invite you to dinner and your sipping coffee in a vintage Fire King Jadite cup you shudder at the thought of our disposable society today.
So visit circlecreekhome.etsy.com and if you are in the market for a cool, high quality vintage step stool, search no more.
I am sure it will become one the things you love as well.
........and don't forget the soap, it is amazing!
