Fun by the Yard Now Open!
We are hosting our first-ever pop up shop during the month of February!
I love to craft. Even more than crafting, I love to buy craft supplies. Shock, I know. So, as you can imagine, I’m super excited to announce that Fun by the Yard is taking up shop inside Birch St. House & Garden for the month of February!
Fun by the Yard, an etsy store with roots in Roslindale, carries a wide array of colorful scrapbook paper, card stock, embellishments, embroidery kits, ribbons, buttons, and fabrics. Fun by the Yard will also carry adhesives, stamps, and tools.
We Have Oodles of Treats for Your Sweets
Here are a couple photos of my favorites.
Make & Take Valentine’s Card Saturday 2/8
Get your craft juices flowing on Saturday, February 8th from 11AM – 1PM. We’re hosting a quick and fun Make & Take event.
Drop in anytime between 11AM and 1PM to hand-craft a very special Valentine’s Day card. This craft is ideal for for children ages 5 and up. Adults, the cards are so cute and easy, you just may want to make one too!
Winter Break: Closed 1/13 – 1/17
Taking a Crafty Break
Happy 2014 Everyone!Birch St. House & Garden is taking a small winter break, Monday, 1/13 through Friday, 1/17. The store will re-open on Saturday, 1/18, at 10AM.
While the store is closed, I’m planning my own personal craft-a-palooza. On the to-do list:
- hand-made cards for the store
- new throw pillow covers for my sofa
- curtains for my kitchen….maybe
small sewn goods (pot holders, towels, lavender sachets???) for my church’s annual Harvest Fair. Because, believe me, November comes around way too fast when it comes to hand-made projects. 2014 will finally be the year I make a contribution!
I also plan to drop by the store and dig around in the basement. I know there are treasures ready to be uncovered and brought upstairs for my 2nd Annual Basement Blowout Sale….
2nd Annual Basement Blowout Sale
Back by popular demand, I’m hosting Birch St. House & Garden’s 2nd Annual Basement Blowout Sale on Saturday, February 1.

For our last Holiday Wander of the season, we’re excited to welcome Birch St. House & Garden family member Judy Flam with her hand-crafted Earringzz!! Some of her earrings have been available at the store in the past; however, I’m really excited to bring in her newest line of glass teardrop earrings.
