We  have been best friends for over a decade, affectionately calling each  other "soul sisters" long before we ever imagined just how far that divine connection would take us. We met through our mutual connection to  real estate.  Laura has been practicing real estate since 2004, and has been a top producing Realtor with William Pitt Sotheby's International  Realty since she joined the firm in 2007.  Laura has always attributed  her real estate success to her "secret weapon" Christy, who has been  providing staging and interior decorating services to Laura's clients  long before "staging" was even a well known term. Christy has been in retail for almost 15 years, owning The Little House Shoppe from 2011-17.  Her love of color and composition influences her design aesthetic and her stores. Together,  Christy and Laura have always instinctively known that to sell a home,  you need to create the right energy to draw the buyer in.  Christy has always  intuitively practiced the principles of feng shui to create the right  energetic balance in each space.  She has now taken this to a whole new  level to become fully certified in feng shui design in order to maximize  the benefits of this ancient practice for her clients.  Laura and  Christy continue to offer full real estate and staging services.                                                            Christy and Laura have created a store that embodies  positive energy and offers comprehensive merchandise which reflects that  mission. 

We are Purveyors of Positivity (POP) for the home, body, and soul.  POP in and see for yourselves!
