Ok, now, I've posted two days in a row but don't count on a blow by blow count down. Although, it could be fun, huh? Well, check back and see what I do. Today I moseyed around the store taking shots of some vignettes and a few of the new arrivals. See for yourself:
Dressing up Martha II.
White & gold & silver
Our wonderful soaps~all wrapped & ready to go
Sweetest book-just featured on Oprah, to boot!
Some Christmas whimsy
Ho, ho, ho
We will be closed, of course, on Thanksgiving but will be open at 10am on the "Busiest Shopping Day of the Year" with coffee, hot chocolate & donuts in the morning. Little sandwiches in the afternoon and some special goings on. If you aren't on our email list be sure to sign up next time you are in the store so you can find out about out special events.
Before I get into the real meat of this blog I want to thank everyone that turned up for our Season Opener. What crowds we had over the three days--and fun, fun people!! It was an amazing start to the holidays. I also want to thank Samuel Ward, our piper, for playing his bagpipes on Friday night. If you missed him--darn. He. Was. Incredible.
Also a huge thanks to Lesli and Lori from Shabby House and Nancy (oh, alright and probably Victoria...!) from Once Upon A Time Antiques, for banding together for our joint Shop Hop. People really seemed to get a kick out of it and loved discovering new places to hunt treasure.
Now that the big "reveal" is over I'd love to be able to slow down a notch....or two. I'm amazed that Thanksgiving is in a week. The traffic in the store has increased. A lot. Yes, the holiday season is upon us. So here is a reminder to all of us (especially me!) to breathe in, breathe out. Relax. And since I haven't had a second to get some pictures of the shop--let's look at something calming from some of my favorite Scandinavian blogs. Very sedate. Under done.
The simplest of trees! And real candles!
A simple, sweet, natural take on plain white tapers.
Candlelight is beautiful, isn't it?
I love these stark little wreaths/rings.
This one looks like rosemary. And an antique candle clip.
And look!! We have very similar little lanterns in the store!!
As promised, we've had time now to bring out even more at the shop. Boxes have come in and we're working on getting everything out and in it's proper place. And more good news: we're not playing Christmas music yet!!!
Friday, November 13 ~ 4 to 8pm Saturday, November 14 ~ 11 to 5pm Sunday, November15 ~ Noon to 4pm

Welcome! At good goods & co we like to keep it casual by mixing urban & rural European with beautiful or quirky conversation pieces. We are Boise's destination stop for the thoughtful, unique and one-of-a-kind gifts you are excited to present to others-- or purchase for yourself and your home!
Our ever-changing inventory is unlike anything you will find in the Valley and keeps our "loyals" coming back to see what is new.
Throw in a nurturing, friendly, well informed staff and reasonable pricing and you'll understand why we are constantly told that exploring at good goods isn't shopping-it's a massage!
