As I mentioned in my last post, I will be partnering with different locally owned women’s stores in my “Shop Local with Closing Deals in Heels” promotion. Each month of the promotion I will be featuring different items from their store to showcase some of the unique things each store has to offer.
Right now I am working with Saltologie in North Jacksonville Beach. They call their style a mix of “bohemian, gypsy, shabby, industrial, vintage character, and funk-tified lusciousness.” You can easily spend hours just browsing through the rooms and just when you think you’ve seen it all, you will spot something else that catches your eye while standing at the register. It’s happened to me one too many times!
This month I am featuring Paint de la mar, roughly translated, means Paint of the Sea. It is specially formulated with chalk additives so that little or no prep work is required – no stripping, sanding or priming.
Paint de la mar was designed specifically for coastal, shabby chic or cottage style painting and at Saltologie, all of their painted items are painted in Paint de la mar. It is SO easy to use and is a great way to turn an old piece of drab furniture into your new favorite home décor. Plus it comes in a vast array of colors to match just about anything. If you are worried about doing it yourself, Saltologie offers monthly “Chalk it Up Furniture Painting Classes” that teach you how to make it look just like something you bought out of a store.
This month Saltologie will be offering $5 off any quart of Paint de la mar when you mention “Closing Deals in Heels” at checkout. Stop by the store today and try it out!
Stay tuned for my blog post next week, which will feature a Jacksonville Beach real estate market update.
