At Charming Finds you can find a little bit of everything for the home, whether you’d like to redecorate, find a gift or something fun for yourself, or even learn the art of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®. Owners DeeAnne Hosmer, Chelsie Hosmer and Ashley Blachuta moved their shop from downtown to Tiffin Avenue in February, allowing for more display space. The boutique, specializing in refurbished furniture, unique gifts and décor, is a retailer of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®. Several monthly workshops are offered for patrons to learn to do it yourself, or bring your furniture in and have the work done for you. A variety of styles and techniques are demonstrated at the workshops, even a “Pinterest Night Out.” Customers can set up their own workshop with four or more friends.
“The paint is popular because you don’t usually have to sand, strip or prime; you just clean and paint,” Blachuta said. “It’s easy to work with, and there are different techniques you can use to get a rustic, solid or finished look.”
Gift items abound inside the store from custom wall and garden art, to jewelry, colorful scarves, silly slippers, products from the Warm Glow Candle Company, stuffed animals, decorative clocks, perfume, and Westbrook Cannery’s jams, salsa and relish. Also check out Trendy Rentals by Charming Finds for rentable furniture and signs designed for special occasions. The more you look around, the more items you see!
