And The Golden Globe Goes To...

 Inspired by the Golden Globes tonight, I decided to switch it up and create a video of the space at the church so you can see a more dimensional view of the furniture we have in. This may or may not be the most boring video you've ever seen, depending on your patience level or your desperation for furniture. I'm sure you can't wait to click on it now. As an alternative to my shaky, home video, I did update each category on the left with pictures and prices of the majority of the new stuff we got in. The choice is all yours.
I've also been updating our Facebook page with times I'm already at the shop for appointments just in case you've been wanting to stop in and have the time. So if you haven't already liked our page, hop on over to that link, click like, and hopefully our notifications will pop up on your newsfeed ( I promise I don't spam it with constant updates!).
If you're new to this blog, hi, welcome! A quick recap of ReDesigNation: we're a (re)used furniture store that started in June of 2011 in a storefront in the Pittsburgh neighborhood of Squirrel Hill.  The start up of this store combines a few of my passions, you can click on the about me section of this blog for more info on that. In February of 2012, my husband and I purchased an old church in Wilkinsburg, as talked about here and here, really for a multitude of reasons, but I'll break it down into one- we needed a building for my store, and a garage to accommodate his landscaping business. The church was an awesome opportunity to take something old and refit it into something new. Which honestly lends itself a lot better to selling (re)purposed furniture than a brand new storefront, plus its like twice the size! With A LOT of love, we restored the main floor and turned it into a showroom for furniture. Instead of me keeping store hours, I've been listing everything online and grouping appointments together for those interested in purchasing furniture (this has allowed me that precious time needed with this little girl).
We went to Greenville, SC to visit a friend. 
What we didn't realize we'd do with the space at first was also be able to use it for community outreaches. We've been able to successfully host a baby shower, a men's group, and soon a co-ed study group will meet there weekly as well. I feel like I'm totally keeping in theme of the whole Golden Globe thing with this speech... yada yada yada, but most importantly, I'd like to thank all of you, my faithful readers and buyers who've made this girl's dreams come true. No seriously, thank you for supporting us, and therefore allowing us to support others. It means a lot, and the year of 2012 was truly a humbling, yet blessed year. Here's to 2013!
