    CJC@HOME: Every Last Detail.

    Last week, we shared some photos from our CJC@HOME event. We styled & staged an entire new construction home with Carver Junk Company inventory, and then opened the doors to our customers for a one-day sale. Everything in the home was available for purchase, and we had the garage and trailers stocked with additional inventory to replenish the home throughout the day. [gallery ids="2535,2528,2531"] In addition to the whole-room photos of the house, our photographer {Liz Ramos, Twin City Visions} captured every last detail we brought into the home.

    Fall Decorating Pinspiration: Bring it On!

    Chad insists on having the air conditioner set at 68 degrees in our house. I'm currently in my pajamas, wrapped in a blanket, with my laptop actually on my lap for added warmth. It feels like winter in our living room, but I'm not quite ready to make that leap, so instead I'm surfing Pinterest for cozy Fall decorating ideas. The kind that are understated, but make you feel warm, and like you can smell the leaves outside...without being in-your-face-orange. Here are some of my favs:   I've added these to my Fall Indoor Decorating Board on Pinterest, too. What about you all? Do you keep your houses well-air-conditioned? Are you ready for Fall?

    A Puppy Kissing Booth for Valentine's Day!

    Have we ever told you how Chad and I {Brandy} met?  Why would we have, really? Hint - it has nothing to do with furniture. Pablo Suvi Ramsey | Photo by Karin Newstrom Photography | Chihuahua Pit Bull Doberman The short version is that it was very "Must Love Dogs"-like. One of the things we bonded over was the fact that I had a pit bull named Suvi. Chad is a big dog advocate as well, having a doberman and a chihuahua named Ramsey & Pablo. Together, our passion outside of repurposing furniture is advocating for misrepresented dog breeds. I like to think the two things are related. It's a stretch, I know, but hang with me here.... We take things that are unwanted, un-needed, and un-loved, and find them new homes. Wouldn't you agree that applies to both furniture and dog rescue?? Minnesota Pit Bull Rescue {Suvi's alma mater} finds solid homes for solid dogs. They temperament test their dogs, and their foster-based rescue requires training and an approval process before dogs are adopted out. They work hard to ensure that their dogs are great representations of a misunderstood breed, and that their owners are, too! Carver Junk Company doesn't have any intention of starting a screening process before we "adopt" our furniture out to new homes. But we do feel the underlying principle is the same - we find solid furniture. We rehab it, and offer it as beautiful alternatives to purchasing new furniture. We offer educational options in the form of painting workshops that allow our customers to rehab their own furniture {in lieu of buying new or discarding}. Have I convinced you that it's a natural partnership yet? Pit bulls and Junk? Ok, ok. What if I just tell you that we wanted to do something heart-warming on Valentine's Day, and partnered with Minnesota Pit Bull Rescue to bring in a Puppy Kissing Booth for charity??  I mean, who really cares if it has anything to do with furniture? For a $1 donation, you get sloppy puppy kisses from adorable pit bulls. We get to support our favorite local charity. The dogs get some visibility, and maybe some interested adopters. Win-win-win. Puppy Kissing Booth | Minnesota Pit Bull Rescue | Carver Junk Company Minneapolis | Valentine's Day | Charity Donation On Valentine's Day, February 14th, we'll have a kissing booth setup in the back of the  Minneapolis store from 10 am to 6 pm. The address is 4748 Chicago Ave S.  You won't be able to adopt dogs at the event, but the amazing volunteers there helping with the puppies will be happy to give you any information you'll need to learn about the dogs & the adoption process! Who is coming to kiss some puppies??

    2014 in Review. And What's Happening in 2015!

    2014 was our second full year in business. We've officially been open for 2.5 years! Some days it feels like a lifetime, and I can hardly remember the early months. Other days, it feels like just yesterday that we opened, and I'm in shock at how quickly we've grown! 2014 was such a fun year for us, with two new locations (our Carver store moved to a new building + the new store in Minneapolis), new furniture & handmade vendors on board, and a lot of furniture moving in and out of our doors! We thought it would be fun to share with you some numbers from this past year.

That includes our vintage, antique, repainted, and handmade items. We are so proud of the impact we're having on the local communities, both because of the amount of furniture and decor we are able to recycle, and the number of local handmade artists we are able to support. We are proud that you choose to shop with us, to purchase and fill your homes with authentic items with character and history. THANK YOU for an amazing year in 2014! Looking forward to 2015 We are actively expanding our handmade inventory. We have brought in handfuls of new artists and vendors in the last couple of months, and anticipate adding more as the year goes on, to ensure we continue to bring you unique, one-of-a-kind items! We are planning more events, workshops, and fun activities than ever in 2015! In 2014, we held over 20 paint workshops, and taught hundreds of DIYers the basics of Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint. In 2015, we anticipate hosting nearly 1,000 paint workshop participants! We are planning more collaborations with other local businesses. We're currently discussing hosting monthly ladies' nights, beer and wine tastings , and we have some fabulous themed sales coming up (think wine & pub-themed sales, and a weekend full of wedding decor). We are working with local charities to increase our positive community impact, starting with a Puppy Kissing Booth in Minneapolis for Valentine's Day with donations benefiting Minnesota Pit Bull Rescue. We aren't wishing away the year - we're so excited about what it will bring - but we also can't wait to share with you a 2015 year in review twelve months from now! What do you hope to see from Carver Junk Company in 2015? Do you know local artists that would be a great fit in our stores? A local business that would be an amazing partner for us? A charity that could benefit from the work we do? Send us an email at info@carverjunkcompany.com!
