Class Without Cash on The Whiskey City Collaborative

Hello, friends! With most of our focus on Abigail Lauren Design, Class Without Cash hasn't been getting a lot of attention. Going forward, you can find Randon and me posting restaurant reviews and any other CWC-esque posts on The Whiskey City. We aren't killing Class Without Cash just yet, but trying to consolidate and place our CWC efforts on a Peoria site with a similar mission.

Click over here to find my latest restaurant review on The Publik House. And make sure to add The Whiskey City collaborative to your reader so you don't miss a post!

A New Neighborhood Jewelry Shop

I don't know if it is the chilly temps or that we are prepping for life upgrades (hello, CWC material), but I'm in the mood to blog and lately that is a rare feeling.

The other night we ventured out to our neighborhood's galleries as we usually do on First Friday, and stumbled upon a few ladies who are opening a handmade jewelry shop next to J. Draper Glass in the Sunbeam building. They had tables full of their jewels on display - everything from statement pieces to dainty staples. I walked away with this crushed pyrite creation (for only $20, you guys) thanks to my sweet husband.

The shop should be open by December's First Friday so check it out if you are in the neighborhood. Until then, you can shop the collection here. While you're at it, stop by this jewelry shop, too. Jessica is another local jewelry artist creating some very cool and incredibly intricate designs.

When we moved into our apartment on High St. I said, "the day we move out of this place is going to be a really sad day."

The time has come, friends. This apartment has been so wonderful. It is our first home together, it is where Randon proposed, and it's where we met for the first time on our wedding day (I am so thankful to Nellie for capturing those moments in this house!). 

I was right; We are sad to leave apartment D. But it's time to move on (and move away from some truly outrageous utility bills). Our new apartment is in another historic property just down the road. It was built in 1920 and has brand new windows AND a washer and dryer. I can't even wait.

But let's get to the point. We have furniture - quite a bit - to sell. We'd love if you'd take it off of our hands. Everything that won't be making the move is listed below. Email us at classwithoutcashblog(at)gmail(dot)com to arrange a pick up time ASAP. This all has to be out within the next month!

Hollywood Regency Tufted Sofa: PENDING
IKEA Billy Bookcase: $15 OBO

Refinished Black High-Gloss Dining Table: SOLD

Pair of Vintage Mirrors: SOLD
Pair of West Elm Pillow Covers (with generic pillow inserts): $15 OBO
