Look at this–Fu For Thought‘s first guest blog post! You can thank my new designer, Claire Patrick, for this Fab Find. Claire has discovered a new addiction for those of us who love Red in Fredericksburg, but don’t get out there too often.
Being one of those weird “northies,” I don’t venture south of the river too often. When I do, it’s usually an all-day event. I headed to Spicewood recently to do a color consult for a new client, and as I drove, I made mental notes of places I might want to stop at on my way back to my neck of the woods. There were several shops in the Hill Country Galleria that piqued my interest, but nothing caught my eye as much as the unassuming orange-fronted country store on the side of 71 with beautiful furniture pieces and bird houses staggered around the parking lot and front porch.
When I finished my consult my tummy was rumbling, but I figured I’d stop by Revival really quick just to check it out. You know…peek my head in, then go grab that yummy sandwich from Bountiful I was craving. I probably ended up browsing around the tiny front porch for a good 5 minutes – which should have been an indication that this was my type of place – but it was when I opened the door that I really knew I was in trouble.
This shop was me – embodied in a retail establishment. Okay, maybe me minus my snarky attitude and frizzy hair and with a tiny bit more glitz, glam, and age. But every piece I looked at was more whimsical than the next, and although plenty of their pieces were new, a LOT were revived (thus the name) or upcycled.
