Throwback Thursday: Butterfly Horse Art & Dog Bench!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants

Yesterday, morning after putting 4 hours of work by 10AM, we had the need to get away...Our first choice is to have lunch at Sides Shoes and Hardware restaurant.  The name is unusual but the owners decided to keep the original name of the building for the restaurant.  The drive is beautiful. 

 

Since we arrived before they opened the doors, we walked down the street to J.Woeste's to see what new delights they were featuring.  We enjoyed the artistry of the horse (pictured above) made of metal butterflies.

This garden bench made us smile.  It would enhance any garden, just for the smiles it would bring.

 

Happy Thursday to all!

CAN YOU STATE HOW YOU ARE DIFFERENT AND BETTER THAN YOUR COMPETITION IN LESS THAN 30 SECONDS?

 

ABOUT:  Luxury Real Estate is a high stakes game. Commissions are substantial! We help luxury real estate professionals get to the listing table more often and win listings more frequently.  If you want to be the market leader, the personal or company brand that your target market thinks of first and refers most often, you need an Elevator Statement to accelerate the process.  We can get you there!

Your Elevator Statement is a succinct and persuasive summary of your extraordinary promise of value, your unique selling proposition.  In a time-starved world the attention span of your target market is shrinking.  To instantly convey what sets you apart from the crowd you need to be able to answer EACH ONE of these 3 questions in less than 30 seconds.: 1) What Do You Do?; 2)  How Do You Do It?, and;  3) How Are You Different?.  Can you state how you are different and better than your competition in less than 30 seconds?

Watch the video above to see and hear how we do it.

I'm glad they kept the name of the old hardware store as part of the restaurant name.  Coupled with the garden art, it works!

That horse with the butterflies is very whimsical.  Any dog owner would love that bench.  Hope you have had a great day.

Morning Alexandra.

Well I can say with no hesitation, I have never seen a butterfly horse before.  There is always a first for everything

Endre Barath, Jr. very proud of you.  This month, we will be doing our usual early bird trip to Beverly Hills...I love it when the traffic is light.  I just wish there were more breakfast places.  We usually end up at Peets on S Beverly...good atmosphere and good coffee.  A

James Dray my interpretation is the artist was equating the butterfly's flight to a running horse.  It is a beautiful sight when you wach a horse run...all four legs in the air for a brief moment. A

Sharon Lee I am a big fan of whimsy.  It always evokes a change of perspective and makes me smile.  Even though we don't own a dog, I would buy that bench for a bigger yard. A

Myrl Jeffcoat Thank you for the feature in Feather Nesters.  Sides has a black and white photo blown up of the original building with the sign.  They did minimal remodeling and kept the character of those olden days.  A

Endre Barath, Jr. we have been there many years ago, and we would not rave about it.  I do appreciate your idea nevertheless.  Il Fornaio used to be open at 6:30, and we would sit at the bar there.  Funny enough none of the hotels serve before 7 or 7:30.  Cheers,  A
