YEAR END SALE

Hi friends.

We are hosting our first ever clearance sale at TEOT.

Sarah and I are both aiming to move a lot of the current collection out to make way for the next batch of goodies. We are ever thirsty for new designs, new vibes, new mixes, new TEOTy good stuff for 2017.

Our constant desire for newnew, is your opportunity to save!

Here is a quick rundown of what is going down.

Online – everything is 25% off. Use coupon code TREATYOURSELF at checkout.
In Store – everything is 25% off, unless otherwise marked with a further discount. For example Furniture floor models are a MUST-GO and are marked down to 40%.

If you do not live in the Southern Pines, NC area, but you are interested in a large furniture item, you should definitely holler at us and we’ll see what we can arrange. We’ve marked these items down on Chairish as well, which provides great White Glove delivery for large items at a very fair price. (aka, much cheaper than any that we can arrange since they do such high volume shipping.)

If you were the lucky recipient of a TEOT Gift Card, it applies.

Also, I will be posting a selection of sale items to the @shopteot Instagram page & The Estate of Things on Facebook – with special prices for our followers. So, get on that here!

Stay tuned for more and go get your shop on.

Holiday Gifts for the Global Wanderer

the-global-wanderer

Hi everybody!

We are moving right along. Today’s holiday gift ideas are for your friends with the wanderlust.

Ah, does she appreciate a good escape.

Whether it is through her latest adventures abroad, a good cultural read or her addiction to her textiles stash.

The global wanderer appreciates the quality of handiwork that is evident in her collections from around the world. She lives vicariously through the products she collects from the far reaches, whether she’s traveled there in person or not.

This is a little piece of what that looks like. Find all of these items and shop the entire Global Wanderer Gift collection on TEOT, here.

A travel tin candle, to elevate your surroundings and make them more homey, even when you are on the road.

A pom-pom bag swag to make your luggage easier to spot when its coming down the claim belt.

Handwoven Rwandan earrings for a little global Holiday bling.

A hemp wristlet for easy access to your cellphone and your passport.

This insanely gorgeous Hmong Tribal embroidery on a pillow.

A lovely African basket to corral all of the trinkets that you’ve collected.

And a hand dyed Shibori Journal for the collected memories.

Lastly, this rich and luxurious example of an Uzbek Suzani to drape over your couch or your table, or add to your textiles stash, to remind you of the beauty of the handmade items from all over the globe.

ADD THIS! Vintage African White Mudcloth

White Mudcloth

If you aren’t yet hip to the Vintage African textiles trend, get up on it y’all.

Mudcloth, in it’s exciting tribal patterns as well as the many indigos and ikats that we are seeing, are all the rage.

Today, we celebrate the wonderful addition that a white mudcloth pillow brings to any pillow grouping, regardless of your style. We love the boho maximal goodness that is everywhere we turn, but we also really appreciate a more subtle, if not sophisticated application of these nubby, textured and soft textiles.

The black and white pattern plays nicely with other colors and patterns and will likely pair well with your current decor. It’s an easy addition for a new flair.

Cruise on over to shop TEOT and see what we have in stock in white mudcloth. We think your home will sing with the addition of one of these global goodies!

Shop Talk: TEOT Mini Kitchen Reveal

Hi friends,

Thanks for stopping in.

I wanted to give you guys a look at the final design of the mini-kitchen in our new brick and mortar shop.

For a quick refresher, SHOP TEOT is laid out very much like an apartment. We took that idea and ran with it.

Before we came along, the space was a salon. The back room that we turned into our kitchen had some really ugly exposed PVC piping and bit of a mess of some cabinetry. With the help of our crew, we pulled it all out, capped it off and started afresh with a miniature kitchen build.

This is where we were when we signed the lease.

Having a mini kitchen built into the retail space serves a number of functions.

It’s wonderful for presentation and merchandising of our newly expanded kitchen and housewares collection. A sink is always a good idea, from washing dirty DIY hands to late nights with a bit of sour beer to get you through the tagging and pricing process. Of course, the whole setup plays host nicely for catered parties as well.

Sarah knew pretty immediately that she wanted to put in some pesto green kitchen cabinets and an apron front sink. She zeroed in on a paint color called Artichoke, by Sherwin Williams.

You might have guessed it, but a quick look at the history of our kitchen trends will find that our blog pretty much nails the final product. We have our sconces, our open shelving, our favorite cabinet hue, brass pulls, mixed metals, and white subway tile!

It all comes together for a modern take on classic design! Here’s the final look. We hope you love the result as much as we do!
