The Blue Building Antiques and Consignment OwnerHi!  I am Sue…Suzanne, Sue at Blu.  You can find me on any given day at my store, The Blue Building Antiques and Consignment.  My Dad instilled the love for DIY in me at a very young age.  We didn’t have repairmen come to our house.  My Dad (aka POP, that’s him below) did everything…the roofing, plumbing, electrical, masonry tasks, refinishing, drywall, painting, tiling…if it needed done, Pop did it!  And if I ever saw a cool toy on TV that we couldn’t afford (or he didn’t want to buy), he made me one!


Welcome to our Shop at Blu pages.  I started this blog to drive traffic to my antique and consignment store in Alabaster AL.  In the process, a never ending process, I have met some phenomenal folks at my store, in the blog world, on Facebook, at conferences, and simply on the street.  In these pages are observations, DIY tips, and sometimes just an introduction to a cool product or a sweet person that we have encountered.  Come along for the ride…check in from time to time…laugh with us and enjoy the Elegant Clutter that makes up LIFE!

        1. We do not buy dolls. They move very slowly. We do occasionally take select dolls on consignment.

    1. We are having a problem with the main line. It only works when the power is on/store is open. Waiting on the electrician! A gentleman stopped by the other day and inquired to your account. I told him I will be running reports today. I will give you a call once I have some totals. Sorry for the delay!

  2. I’m officially entering for the spray painter and if I were to win, I would paint the two front porch rockers that are peeling away coating everyone in white. I would also paint a room and Stephen’s night stand. 🙂
