We can’t believe it’s been 5 years since our store opened!!!
It was a really scary jump from when we first started at Fabulous Finds…we had antique booths and were working with clients out of our homes. Once we finally took the jump to open a store it has been so rewarding… our clients are amazing and we love meeting new people in the store that often become regulars and new friends…we couldn’t be more happy and grateful for all of you…Read More

Its Friday and its fabulous here at the NEW Providence Design Showroom! We are working hard to get everything ready for our party next week. Hope to see you there
Dear friends...Please raise your glasses with us because we have some very exciting news!
January 1, 2016 we are moving into our brand new store and design studio!
We could not be more excited!
We'll still be located in Capital Park by Cajuns Wharf which has become Little Rock's premier design and decorative center...just moving a few doors down.
But...We will have more than twice the amount of space we have now. And air conditioning!
Yes... these are warehouses and currently only our offices are air conditioned...but with the move our showroom will be air conditioned and heated as well. More offices, a dedicated conference room, fabric room, kitchen...and so much more.
The space is really pristine and needs very little work...but of course we are very busy making plans to really make this space our own.
It's going to be beautiful!
It seems like only yesterday that we made the decision to sub-lease part of the space occupied by our good friends at Chandler and Associates...Approximately 3500 square ft. But it's been two years!
One of the reasons we don't have an air conditioned showroom is we sub -leased part of Chandlers warehouse...We had to erect our own walls to divide the space and make a showroom...
And I have to say we have done a phenomenal job with a very challenging space...
One of the best decisions we ever made was to hire Zac....He worked tirelessly to help us get this store open...
It's been a crazy busy two years...
Lot's of new clients and fun projects...both local and National recognition for our work...
Our project on the cover of Country French...Now in it's second printing! We had two different homes featured in this issue.
Included on the cover of the January issue of At Home in Arkansas among the 24 trend setting designers in Arkansas...
We were thrilled to be featured in Southern Lady Magazine...
We had a project featured in Tuscan Style other features in At Home in Arkansas and AY Magazine as well.
We were the chosen design team for the Southern Living Idea House that was open to the public in Little Rock last April...We made all of the design decisions from the ground up and staged the entire home...It was an amazing experience working with the builders and the promoters for this event.
We work really hard...like all of the time. But we always have fun...
And we adore our clients...
We have an awesome team!
We recently got all of our inventory on the computer and are printing vs writing tags...
What a job that was!
Thank-you, Lana for all that you do! You take a job and just run with it!
And Sharon...you have always been there for us when we need you. We just can't thank you enough...And may be needing you a lot more. Hint! Hint!
And Zac is our little brother, our son, our friend...and our complete partner in crime!
I think I'm getting a bit sentimental...
It's been an amazing two years...But the best is yet to come!
We can't wait to pick up those keys!
Please celebrate with us!
It's your turn. Let's talk!
Last week my friend Alexis and I tried out Piro, a new pizza place in SOMA. This week we ate at a place called South On Main, that happens to be next door to Piro. South On Main is a unique experience as it is a great restaurant, as well as performance venue, featuring the best of southern cuisine and culture. Wednesday night, when we went, there was a jazz band performing. Our table was close to the band, so we started with wine and appetizers while listening to the music.
Unfortantly after I snapped a photo of the wine and the really pretty chandeliers above the host stand, my phone decided to quit working.
I did however gather some photos online of menu items, and will do my best to describe our meal haha.
We started with the skillet break appetizer. It is a soft bread, similar to pita that is cooked in a cast iron skillet, hence the name. Its served with different dips, spreads, or toppings, and the night we were there, it was a delicious smoked trout spread. Our waitress brought us a second appetizer on the house, since it was our first time dining there... thanks again! She picked her favorite, the trotters, made from pork and a cornbread served over brown beans. So yummy!
For our main course, my friend ordered the pasta, and I the fish.
The pasta was wonderful with butternut squash, brussel sprouts, and sage. My striped bass was delicious with the fennel salad and clams.
For desert we had the cookies, which a is basically two homemade cookies with a scope of ice cream in between. The ice cream is from Loblolly, a local ice cream place. Below is the chocolate chip version, while the one we had was snicker-doodle cookies with carrot cake ice cream in the middle. Awesome!
South on Main was a great place. The atmosphere with the live music combined with the delicious food was so awesome, especially on a Wednesday night! I would definitely go back. The music always changes, as well as different variations of menu items, so you could have a totally different experience every time.
Will you be trying South on Main?
Until next week, Zac.
