Congratulations to Candice Zarba, owner of the The Black Purls Yard Shop in Sandwich for a beautifully executed move to her new location at 201 Route 6A in Sandwich on Cape Cod.
Her shop is a paradise for knitters and would be knitters, carrying wool and exotic yarns from around the world. Candace has regularly scheduled knitting classes, holds specialized workshops and hosts special guests year round. Her flock of knitters stay busy in a cozy room surrounded by glass windows facing the marshes in the rear of her new shop. The place is truly warm and inviting, the bins full of yarn colors pop like a wild flower garden. When I met Candace in May she was very excited about the new property she and her husband were purchasing but had one problem, she had one year left of the lease at her old place in East Sandwich.
She put a call into Greg Donahue a local real estate professional in Sandwich to meet and discuss possible options. Greg advised her that the best solution would be to find a tenant acceptable to the landlord and establish a new lease between the tenant and the landlord instead of subleasing off her existing lease. She hired Greg and within a couple of weeks Greg found a passionate artist named Michael Edwards to take her place. The parties had personal meetings, carefully listened to one another’s goals and concerns and Greg brokered a new lease that worked for everyone.
Michael Edwards sources unique, mostly wood furniture and home decor such of as end-tables, coffee tables, dressers, sideboards and more. He gives these pieces a new life with various hand applied paints, paper and finishes. He loves to customize furniture for spaces so if you found a piece or have heirloom furniture that just doesn’t go with todays popular styles but don’t want to part with it, visit Michael. He can customize the piece for its new place in your life. The Furniture Re-born studio and showroom will be located at the former Black Purls Yarn Shop at 685 Route 6A in East Sandwich this summer.
Best wishes on your new places, new spaces and future ventures.
