In the beginning….

Hard to believe that the grand opening of our new store, ‘Most Everything‘ is 15 days away.

For many of you receiving this first blog, you may be a little bewildered which is completely understandable considering I manage a coffee shop in Newberg, Oregon (The Coffee Cottage) and Patrick owns and operates a recording studio in Vancouver, Washington (Ripcord Studio). After much searching for work in the Vancouver area (so that Patrick and I can be in the same area, or state) I decided to put my marketing and management skills into our own business…. Most Everything.

‘Most Everything’ is a store located in downtown Vancouver, Washington filled with one of a kind antiques, vintage furniture, original art, clothing and collectibles. The store is divided into three sections; funky in the front (mid-century modern), classy in the back (true antiques) and a hall of art in-between. We were thrilled to find this location situated between an Italian restaurant (Little Italy), a furniture consignment shop called Divine Consign, around the block from a three-story antique mall and two blocks from Esther Short Park in downtown Vancouver. The restaurants and galleries all around us are outstanding and we are proud to be a part of the revitalization of the downtown area. It has been a true delight to meet the owners and operators of these small businesses. They are real people trying hard to make their dreams a reality. Our hope is help them become a success along with our success by encouraging and supporting local businesses.

Mark you calendar for our open house and grand opening celebration on Thursday, November 18th and Friday November 19th from 5pm – 9pm. Keep an eye open for your invitation!
