Would appreciate it if you'd spread the word...perfect for Old House Lovers

We've built an amazing business but it is close to retirement time and we'd love for someone to take this over. We've met the nicest people through our "sideline" - including some members of OHJ online. Virtually a turn-key operation with everything you need to get started from inventory and websites to ads and photos. Please share with others who may be interested as well.

Do you have a product you prefer (wax, oil, homemade) to clean and maintain/dust your antique furniture and woodwork?  I don't mean for refinishing, but just for regular maintenance and cleaning.Continue

If you have an old house related blog or would like to add to links to relevant you tube videos, post them here.

Just thought I'd check in if there were any questions. Added the 4th and final installment on my blog about selecting upholstery fabrics a couple of days ago. Other new postings on Retro Mid-century Modern and Art Nouveau decor on Squidoo. If you're interested, take a look and let me know what you think. Hope you find something of use in those. Please post any links you might have to related topics. Thanks.

I have been getting some decorating questions privately but would really like to have this be a group for discussions so we can all share our experiences, insights, and resources. If there is no interest here, I may move this group to FB page at www.facebook.com/RestorationFabrics or simply close it. Your thoughts?

There appears to be interest in keeping this group here. Again, if you wish to contact me privately please let me know if it is okay if I share your question/our correspondence with the group. I'd like to have open discussions here rather than off-site. And I think you will find that the group will be more helpful than I can be alone. thank you.

What room are you currently working on?

Okay - I know there are a lot going on at the same time, but which is your priority?  We always found that planning a not-too-unmanageable project before a holiday or some other event which provided an opportunity for entertaining was a good way to ensure that we'd actually get it to a presentable, if not completely finished, state by that time.
