The Little Things


Stuart Hough, Sunnyside Trading Co.

We are in the height of summer, and what a summer it has been!

In June, I travelled throughout Spain and Morocco. I returned with more rugs than photos! We also started unloading our (very big!) shipment from India, full of treasures in my favorite color, blue.

In July, Sunnyside reached our fifth year at Foundy Street, which is located in the heart of Asheville’s River Arts District. Here we are pictured celebrating with our friends at the Asheville Chamber of Commerce!

And we are still celebrating with an anniversary sale through the end of the month!

In many ways, this summer has certainly been a big one. So, you might wonder, why I have been reflecting lately upon all the little things. In my experience, have found that it is often the little things that matter most…and can produce the greatest joy.

I love the moment when I happen to catch a customer’s eyes light up when they see that “perfect” piece for their home. Or, when a patron comes back just to say “hello” and catch up with us. And I never grow tired of being asked to tell the story behind a Sunnyside treasure. Moments like these are what keep me energized and feeling alive.

Khalil Gibran famously wrote, “In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.” These are certainly “little” things, but they can bring us so much joy.’

With this in mind, we have shared ] some of our favorite “little things” from around the store. And, as always, we’d love to see you and hear about all your adventures, big and small!
