Vendor Profiles: Artist Robby Herbst & OneEleven


Today let’s take a look at two vendors whose wares help make CFR the fun little shop that it is.


First up is OneEleven, the fabulously hip collection of bow ties we have here in the shop. We love the patterns and luxe fabrics. Raise your hand if you’re happy that bow ties have come back into fashion in a big way? It’s easy to imagine every tie in this collection dressed up for all those summer time weddings quickly approaching or dressed down for an evening out.


Next up is the collection of prints we have from local artist Robby Herbst. It’s feeling appropriate to feature Robby’s witty arboreal works a few days after Earth Day. These are incredibly reasonably priced and would look great framed. My personal favorite is the tree growing out of the TV set. Get outside and play, folks!

And while you’re outside walk yourself down to CFR to pick up a snazzy OneEleven tie or a Herbst print. We’ll see you soon!



the colors of spring


We’re happy that the outside is finally starting to match the inside of our colorful shop. Some of our lovely in-store items and their springtime hues coming atcha:

 ^^^ and this lovely springtime collection from Sage Sprouting. April showers bring May flowers…in yo’ ears! ^^^

Stop in and see us over the weekend to make some of these pastel pieces part of your home!

Vendor Profile: Backyard Mint



You know, one of the nice things about wine is that it is seasonally appropriate year round.  That’s why we think these cork wreaths by Backyard Mint are genius. No more switching out your wreath each season or holiday. One of these lovelies will do you good all year long. OR you can switch up your own adornments if you’re really into keeping things festive.


Backyard Mint also makes cute initial decorations. That way you can hang an S on your door to say “Hey, we’re the Smiths and we wine wine all the time time.” The entrance to your home needs to make a statement and we think that is a pretty good one. They would look great anywhere really!! We take custom orders here in the shop! Just let us know your letter of choice and we’ll get our girl Brittany, the crafty lass responsible for BYM, on it.

Stop in and see us and the selection for Backyard Mint in the shop sometime soon!

Good Day, Sunshine
