A Peach Of a Blog!

We love it when we get a mention on someones blog--especially if that blogger is a customer and knows first hand how we love to do what we do! Meg & Nicki are sisters (and DARLING sisters to boot!) who are the plum and peach of their aptly named blog plum & peach!    

They are two city gals sharing an apartment and from the looks of their blog, are always on the go! Lucky for us, " When looking for furniture and home decor for our apartment, our favorite place to shop has been Room With A Past."  they write, and share some photos of just a few of the things they purchased from us:


Visit their blog and follow along with them as they give their tips on Apartment Therapy, Favorite Things and Foodie (lots and LOTS of foods! How do they stay so slim?!?) interests. 

Do you have something you'd like to share about a favorite item you've purchased at one of our monthly sales? Please contact us! We'd love to know all about it!
