In January 2009 I was deeply sadden to learn Rachel Ashwell filed Chapter 11 and closed her Shabby Chic stores....to me it was a true indication that no one was immuned from the recession. But my blogger friends....the Queen of Shab is back! On October 20th she opened the Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Couture store at 117 Mercer Street New York and still has the location in Santa Monica. And look at her new lines of furniture...spectacular!
I just wish I lived close enough to visit her gorgeous stores! Until I can make the trip to NY, I'll get my fix by buying her new book.
Hope you have a wonderful day...its a gorgeous FALL day here in Virginia!
