It’s well-known that Portland is a Do-It-Yourselfer’s paradise, and that the city celebrates people who make and do their own thing. Many of these folks pass through our store on a daily basis, in search of inspiration and beautiful products to complete their projects. Which is why we’re excited to host the hottest DIY couple around, Sherry and John Petersik of Young House Love. The Petersiks will be at our store on Saturday, January 26, 2013 from 12:00 to 3:00 PM to sign copies of their new, bestselling book (aptly titled Young House Love).
The Young House Love blog started out as a hobby. The self-described “DIY dorks” decided to chronicle the transformation of their Richmond, Virginia ranch from a “needs-some-love house into a love-it-to-pieces home.” (Naturally, this is exactly the kind of undertaking we heartily support here at Rejuvenation!) With its cheery style and smart advice, the blog developed a devoted following – and collected some major media kudus along the way (HGTV, The New York Times, and Forbes, to name a few).
Thanks to the blog’s success (and a whole lot of hard work), the Petersiks were able to quit their day jobs, wrote a book, and are now hitting the road to meet and greet friends and fans across the country – hurrah!
So, Portlanders, mark your calendars because your chance to meet the Petersiks is coming soon. You can pick up their book, Young House Love, in advance at our store. We hear their book signings have been incredibly well attended, so you’d be smart to arrive good and early. You’ll also have a chance to win our new Skidmore Plug-In.
