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!

Sat Nam! My name is Susan Helbing and I teach Kundalini yoga.I was once a relentlessly helpful person to everyone else but rarely to myself.I’ve always had a strong passion for animals, nature and visual art.
After my first class in 2015, I became hooked on this practice of transformation. What I noticed overtime was how kundalini yoga successfully reunited me with my true self.
Sat Nam means Truth is my identity or essence. Being true to yourself creates the purpose or desire of your soul. I became more trusting in myself which grounded me and I gained me more confidence. I began to attract more positivity into my life and had very little space for negativity. My perspective shifted and I felt more grateful about life. My choices became rooted more in the fulfillment of my soul rather than pleasing others or worried about how “society” is judging me.
“When you don’t go within, you go without”-Yogi Bhajan
