Our very own Koiner Kulp Thomas (head merchandiser here @ The Dog) and Courtney Cronin (who provides fabulous finds & creations via "The Dot Spot" located here in our Marketplace) have joined forces to offer Home Redesign & Staging Services in the Roanoke Valley.
They specialize in helping you reduce, reuse and recycle your existing furniture.
Have too much clutter? Not sure how to make your favorite piece of furniture, artwork, fabric work in your home? Want to give your room a new look without blowing your budget? Looking to sell your home in this tough competitive market?
Call Koiner & Courtney for a consultation!
I can speak from experience that Koiner has the magic touch ~ as a friend, I've thankfully been able to utilize her services these past few years for my own little cottage. It's gotten to the point where if my husband drives up & sees her car out front, he knows for sure that something has been rearranged inside (or that I've snuck another Black Dog find into our house)! Koiner has a terrific eye for design & color ~ to see for yourself, come browse through our showroom.
Courtney's creative energy is evident in her booth here @Black Dog called 'The Dot Spot' ~ she has a knack for finding furniture with great bones and bringing pieces back to life. I have her to thank for many a side table in my house!
Together, the two are great fun to work with and will offer a professional and creative eye to their clients.

Where: Market Street and Salem Avenue, downtown Roanoke
Time: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday

Reading their 'About Me' page reminded me of Mike & Robert's start here @ Black Dog - I'm sure many in the Architectural Salvage industry can relate. There's no doubt that the passion that helped create Nor'East will help carry them forward to the next chapter. Our best wishes go out to John & Donna.

Saturday started out OK. Then rolls in a nasty line of thunder storms and wind mixed with lots of lightning, not good! Linda and the local law tell every one get out NOW! Then the bottom falls out. We hunker down in the Black Dog trailer with a cold beer and a fine cigar. About an hour later the worst is over and there are still people that want to party. Go figure.
Sunday had better weather and the mature crowd stayed and took home some of the treasures we brought to sell. The best sellers were the Buddhas and the teak root furniture, not to mention the winking guys. Only a few of my wine racks sold and it was a wine fest - now what was that all about? My goods went from the wine fest to PA, MD, and of course Northern VA - even had a wonderful teak table go th Anchorage AK. Thanks Andie, hope it looks great in your home.
My partner in retail was John Davis of John Davis Antique, right here in Roanoke VA. John's wine tables and freight cart coffee tables were a hit but the big star was John's Tear Drop tow behind camp trailer. Custom made and appointed with beautiful woods and inlays it was a real head turner. John makes these to order so don't delay in getting yours in production for your next outing. Thanks for all the help John and I want mine longer and in blue.
So thanks to all the people that took a little of the Black Dog home with them and to the others that just came over to talk. We had a great time. Visit our online store if you wake up and said Oh I should have grabbed that bench or Buddha or what ever. We are still here just a mouse click away or if you are on the way by, stop on in. Sally will be waiting.
When we next meet.
Mike @ The Dog
