Kodi Schram and Pat Borland are teaming together to bring us furnishings and home décor at their new store, Western Lifestyles. It will feature the functional western art and furnishings of Pat Borland. Many of you know Pat as a local horse shoer and blacksmith. What many of you may not know is that this man is incredibly talented and is making furnishing and décor pieces out of old barn wood (80 to 130 years old), horse shoes (of course), branding irons and nails. I have seen a few of his creations and they are top notched. As nice as anything I have seen online, in catalogs or the lifestyle stores in Houston and Dallas. No kidding folks, we have a true artist in our midst and we are fortunate to have the items available to us locally. Some of the items that will be available are picture frames and frame and buckle holder combos and mirrors, coffee tables and kitchen tables, clear up to a 6 ft hutch. Custom work is also available. If you have an idea that he hasn’t thought of, bring it in and he’ll work with you to create your special piece. They plan to eventually carry tack again. YEA!! They will open their doors for the first time this Saturday from 10:00 to 6:00. Their hours thru Christmas will be everyday from 10:00 to 6:00. They will be closed on Sundays after Christmas. The store is located at 7620 NE 219th Street in Battle Ground, WA. That is just East of Dollars Corner on SR 503. Their phone number is 360-687-2479. It will be nice to have a local store again. Let's support them as best we can.
