clothing designer who had been apprenticing with Adams, purchased the business on November 1. She and her co-workers, Jill Jacob and Chester Nuels (a forty-year veteran of the upholstery game who comes up from Denver two or three days a week) are still restoring your favorite pieces of furniture to look as good as new.
As part of their new business plan they are now tackling automobile, motorcycle, boat, and patio furniture re-upholstery jobs as well. And in a nod to their fashion background, the women are creating custom clothing and alterations to order. Besides being on retainer for the Hotel Bolderado, English has been working with several interior design firms in Boulder, to create unique furniture with just the right look. If you happen to have a piece of furniture that you haven’t been able to move on Craig’s List, stop by the shop, English will be happy sell it for you on consignment. Open Monday through Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., pick-ups and deliveries for Lyons residents are free.
To celebrate the change in ownership, English and Jacob will be hosting a “Quasi-Trunk Show/Open House” on Wednesday, December 15, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the shop, 401 Main Street (the entrance is actually on 3rd Avenue above Lyons Automotive). They invite the public to come on down; partake in some hors d’oeuvres, maybe have a glass of wine, and check out the art, jewelry, clothing, and furniture.
