Meet Chris Hardine
Owner and Finder behind Midwest Cottage & Finds
Several years ago after attending an Oprah taping on what is now called a “side hustle” I came home and decided to kick up my game! I started small- attending auctions- buying what is called “smalls” and selling them on e-bay…I loved looking for one of kind items that were small enough to ship inexpensively – but interesting enough for others to purchase.
While at auctions I noticed vintage furniture pieces were being sold for next to nothing or almost being given away….These pieces had so much character and history……so I would grab a piece every now and then if it “spoke” to me…well….they did A LOT of talking! Fast forward to about 9 years ago when a few “creatives” in our town were passing around the idea of starting a vintage, French-style market…several meetings later “Market On Moss” was born….and I am very proud to say I am one of the founding vendors of Market on Moss.
My painted vintage furniture pieces have always been the base of my booth….and they sell. I love painting pieces – which I had been doing for over 12 years now ….fast forward a few more years and I became a paint retailer and I manage paint in local shops. And now TODAY, I am not only a retailer for Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint, I am on the Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint Team as their Social Media Manager – handling all areas of social media.
So browse around, look in the “shop” area and keep coming back….as I have not even started going through my barn stash yet! Have questions about Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint and how to use it? You have come to the right place! Just ask….and thanks for being here….
