San Antonio's Newest Hotspot: The Tiny Finch

There's a new store in San Antonio that is quickly making a name for itself. The brainchild of Courtney Beauchamp, this space fuses all of the elements you'd want in a shop without all the fluff you'd ignore anyways. With a name as unique as its inventory, The Tiny Finch creates a different (and better!) concept for what today's home stores should be like. I hope the trend continues!  Interior Canvas had the pleasure to talk with Courtney to learn more about The Tiny Finch and what exactly makes it so unique.

Thank you for being here today, Courtney! How did the idea for The Tiny Finch originate? I am from Houston, and every time I would go to Houston, I would be inspired by what I saw that was not in San Antonio!  I think this was the fuel behind the Tiny Finch. There were gift stores in San Antonio, but not what I would call a "Lifestyle Store." Recently, there was an article in the Wall Street Journal that my husband gave to me. It spoke about the "General Store" concept being reintroduced. Everything from jewelry and books, to even food and coffee! I don't have an interest in food and coffee (especially since an amazing coffee shop called Local Coffee just opened up next door to me!), but the "General Store" concept I can relate to! The Tiny Finch has a bit of everything in it: great letterpress cards, art, jewelry, coffee table books, clothes, home decor, rugs and furniture.

List 5 favorite things you are crushing on in your store right now: 5 FAVORITE THINGS - 1) I am obsessed with Turkish and Moroccan rugs right now. I just got back from market and found these amazing cream colored ones with brown stripes. I also have brighter Turkish ones: runners and large area rugs that make a great statement in a room! 2)  Roost Chairs. Roost makes the coolest chairs! They are affordable and just different. They have a very organic look to them (think jute and iron or iron and canvas).

3)  Canvas is another favorite right now! We have waxed canvas aprons, waxed canvas wallets and bags, and light canvas throws in muted colors. I just love the feel, the look-everything about canvas right now! 4)  The coffee table books we have in right now are amazing. You can get lost looking through them too - everything from Moroccan tiles, Shabby Chic, to a book titled "Wisdom." They're all inspiring! 5) Nest Bamboo Candle. It smells amazing and isn't too overpowering. What sets The Tiny Finch apart from other stores? Unique things! I really try hard to bring in things you won't see everywhere - I mean I try really hard!  But if I mentioned them in this article, they may not be so unique anymore....so I am going to have to say, come to the store and find out for yourself!
