In my first blog post I mentioned an idea to partner with locally owned women’s stores that would promote both real estate and support our local businesses. I am excited to officially announce the launch of “Shop Local with Closing Deals in Heels.”
Every few months I will be featuring a different locally owned woman’s business in my Closing Deals in Heels blog and social media boards. I will highlight different items from their shop as well as host a “Sip & Shop” event at the end of the segment with wine, appetizers, discounts, and of course, shopping!
In addition, I will be featuring the local real estate market that surrounds the store. I will conduct open houses, video tours, and an in-depth market overview to give people a different look at real estate.
I am thrilled to announce that Saltologie in North Jacksonville Beach is the first store I will be partnering with for “Shop Local with Closing Deals in Heels.” I have been a customer of this store for many years now and discovered it long before I met one of the amazing owners, Aixa Groff, through our church.
The first item I ever bought from this store is still hanging in my house today (pictured above). There are many things I could praise about this store but I will stick with just two for this blog post… I love its unique furniture and home accents featuring the design work of some of the most sought after local beach artisans. I also love how affordable it is! In addition, Saltologie offers in-home design consultation, custom furniture/cabinet painting services and monthly classes for furniture painting and chalkboard art. The other owner Lisa Miller, painted my kitchen cabinets and did an amazing job. (pictured below before and after).
This week you will see a few different posts/events coming out to kick-off this promotion. The first will be a video on using chalk paint that is sold at the store. The second will be an open house at 134 9th Ave North (just a few blocks from Saltologie) this Saturday, from 1-4 p.m.
