A Post & Gray Sendoff

Staff, merchants, and family gathered Wednesday night to celebrate Garland Potts' time at Post & Gray and wish her congratulations on her exciting move abroad.  After over two years at Post & Gray, Garland is leaving for Madrid, Spain to continue her marketing career.  We will miss her always cheerful presence at the store, amazing photographs and eye for computer design, but could not be happier for her taking this wonderful opportunity.  We can't wait to see her pictures and read her blog.  Updates to follow!
Post & Gray staff got together for Garland's sendoff.  Everyone enjoyed Mac's Speedshop BBQ and Chick-fil-A chicken nuggets and sweet tea.  All things Garland will miss in Madrid!

In Search of the Perfect Wedding Gift

After attending several weddings this summer, I am all too familiar with the search for the perfect wedding present.  Do you stick to the registry?  Or is it okay to think outside the box?  I personally love a surprise, and what better a surprise for newlyweds than items to help them create their home's style together?  Check out our ideas below-all available at Post & Gray!   

For the sentimental couple-You can never have too many frames to fill with wedding and honeymoon photographs.  Choose from traditional nickel plated silver or bone ivory.

For the entertainers-Beautiful hand painted black and white geometric plates and hand blown wine glasses will guarantee you are invited over for dinner!

DIY - Great weekend project!

I was checking out some quick and easy projects to try and home and came across this great idea! Taking doorknobs and turning them into a great coat rack or wall racks.  We have these great door knobs here from Purple Pepper:

Here were some examples I found on Pinterest.  It was really neat to see what other people were coming up with on their own --

Specifically this picture below jumped out to me because we have all the elements here at Post & Gray to put this together! We have a mantle and the door knobs needed to do this at home. It is such a great idea for a unique look in your home.  You could even mix and match the types of door knobs to get a different look.

Stop by and see what you can accomplish yourself! There are so many little projects that just need a little inspiration to get started.
