About Us

As a young person, Bobbi Eddy always dreamed of having a store.  She wanted a place where she could gather things she loved and create an environment where people could shop and feel happy.  In 2005, almost by accident, she came across a for sale listing for a small store in the Folsom Historic District that sold painted furniture and vintage decor.  She and her partner Pam decided to take the plunge and purchased Not Too Shabby and, as they say, the rest is history.

A Happy Place

Bobbi had rescued, repaired, repurposed and painted old furniture for much of her life.  In 2011, Bobbi was approached to consider this strange paint that did not require extensive prep to use…no sanding, no stripping, no priming…Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®.  Turns out it was even better than advertised and Not Too Shabby went from a really cute home decor, gift, and painted vintage furniture store to one that included all that AND Chalk Paint® AND classes on how to use the paint.  It hasn’t stopped there.

Today customers can come in to Not Too Shabby, Folsom and Not Too Shabby Studio, Roseville and experience the happy Bobbi has created.  The stores are full of items personally selected by her and curated to give those who enter a sense of joy and inspiration and the confidence to transform their home environment into a happy place too.

It is hoped this online store is an extension of the kind of inspiration customers get when they come in to the physical stores.  Many of Bobbi’s favorite items are presented here, along with Chalk Paint®, Iron Orchid Designs and workshops.  Now customers have the chance to visit the stores virtually at the time of day that works best for their busy lives.  Here’s to the pursuit of happy.
