Welcome to The Seed Box

Welcome to The Seed Box Shop Blog!

Hi everyone, this is Debra from Common Ground. Meloney has asked me to put together a blog as an addition to their website, www.theseedboxantiques.com so that she and Brian would be able to let everyone know their upcoming news and locations of shows and dates. I will be working with Meloney to show photos of what they are doing that is new, and to highlight their Open Houses and Shows.

There will be a comment section at the end of each post. Right now, I am solely posting on the blog, so if you would like to comment, please do so. Meloney and Brian will be reading them, and looking for your feedback. If you need specific information, please feel free to email them or give them a call.

Some of you may have seen the photos and posts I did for their recent Garden House-Open House, that was held on their property,  April 23 and 24, 2010. In case you missed them, here are a few of the photos, so you can see the amazing job they have done in designing and constructing their new Garden House, which showcases their vintage garden and architectural pieces.

We're so glad you dropped by this first post of the new blog. We hope you'll join as a follower so that you will be able to know the latest, and keep up with what's happening with The Seed Box.  I'm really excited to get to be a part of their latest endeavor.

Be sure and check out their show dates on the right column. They will be in
Houston, Texas at the Urban Market May 15 and 16.
They are hoping to see you there.

Next post I will have pictures of some of the tables Brian is building for the upcoming shows. You won't want to miss them.
