Much-enjoyed visits during end of September stay in Hope!
Sep 2019
We were back to Le Shed again during a recent end-of-September stay in Hope. Daughter and I dropped in during a downtown walkabout the first afternoon of our stay. And then came back with Mom the next day, so she could finally have the opportunity of meeting/chatting with the owner, and seeing her fine shop and offerings, and witnessing her wonderful artistic talents.

It was another opportunity for us to see and chat with ‘Cindy’ (owner/artist), about her current displays, recent restorations, new creations, and some of her future plans, thoughts, and all.

Several offerings catch our attention this time, but especially, a large, writing/art-working desk display, and several pieces of furniture she had restored since our last visit. We sure enjoyed seeing the very artistic, creative, and lovely makeovers she had completed with each (desk, side/lamp table, large cabinet, and bureau). Fine pieces, that will make lovely additions to anyone’s home, studio, or the like.

These works, and some others, gave us the opportunity to see a little of what she has been doing, and how she has been experimenting with the ‘FAT’ brand of paints, and other products, she carries and sells in her shop.

We so-enjoyed these visits to ’Le Shed’. With its lovely proprietor, and cool displays of “old things, vintage, and odds & ends” stuff — for us, a ‘must-do’ stop in downtown Hope.

Fun and interesting visit!
Mar 2019 • Couples
Daughter and I visited Le Shed twice during our 3-night recent stay in Hope. We found the shop initially during our first early-morning walkabout, it looked cool, we noted the business hours, and returned later to see what it was all about. That first visit was not enough, we went back again the next day, to catch a little more of the sights, and the enjoyment we had talking with the warm and friendly owner/host.

On the shop’s business card, it states offerings of “Old things, and odds & ends”, and for such a small place, really does offer a very decent, and wide-selection of both, with several of the items (old, vintage, and ‘newer’) brought in and sold via consignment. In the new stuff category, the shop carries a range of ‘FAT Paint’ products (paints, waxes) — a brand of chalk-style paint for artisans — which can be used to transform old furniture, glass products, and almost anything into works of up-cycled art.

I am not sure how one is supposed to shop at such a place. I guess if seeking a specific item, or having some kind of product in mind, you might seek the owner, and ask. For us though, it was basically a walk about the shop, browsing and checking out all the sights, zeroing in on anything we found of particular interest — then seeking information and price from the owner. Neither daughter or I had anything specific in mind when we dropped into the shop - we basically just wanted to take a good look, and immerse ourselves in the lovely ambiance of the place for a while. That said, we did find something to capture, and take home as small remembrances of our visits.

We were sure happy to have found Le Shed, and meet Cindy, the owner. Her fine little place will be at the top of where we wish to return when back to Hope again. And we will ensure Mom is with us for that upcoming visit to her place!!
