Melanie Diamont and Cathy Robinson:
We are a retailer featuring new & repurposed home furnishings along with Amy Howard at Home products and diy workshops teaching finishing techniques for furniture & accessories/design studio. Prior to finding Amy Howard at home’s finishing product line, we worked with many other paint products. We discovered Amy Howard at Home during the 2013 Home Furnishings Market in High Point, North Carolina. We were amazed at the depth of her product line and decided at that point to become an Amy Howard Retailer. After attending the June 2013 Retailer’s Workshop with Amy, Gene and their staff, we came back inspired to share our newfound skills with others.
When a newly renovated property listed on the historical registry became available in downtown Mount Airy, NC, we realized we had found the ideal spot for our business. Our local clientele is growing as people discover the ease and beauty of using these products. In our new space, we have room for our offered workshops, including One Step & Gilding, Cabinet Door, Bring Your Own Piece and Zinc Duo.
