Schenectady’s Bluebird Home Decor shutting its doors


SCHENECTADY – ⁢Bluebird‍ Home Decor is saying goodbye to its​ State Street location with a closing ‌sale after the owner announced the⁢ store’s closure⁢ in March via Facebook.

“A little over a year ago I‌ began feeling ⁣a ⁢nudge that⁣ I could not ignore,” stated owner Nicolle Broughton in a heartfelt Facebook post on Friday. ⁣”After much thought⁢ and⁢ even more prayer, I‍ have⁢ made the very difficult decision to move on from my retail storefront in Schenectady.”

The storefront opened in 2018, but the⁢ home decor and gift ​shop was established by‌ owner Broughton in 2013,⁣ with⁤ a previous location in⁤ Troy.

The shop⁣ features handmade, vintage, and new items⁣ for people’s​ homes​ and works with over⁤ 20 artists and other businesses ‍across the country, ⁣according to the company website.

Broughton expressed uncertainty ​about her next steps.

“I do ‌know ⁢that my creativity‌ does not ⁢end here. I will still be around, ⁤selling in some capacity,” the Facebook post stated. ‌”I am simply stepping⁣ out in faith, releasing my storefront and believing that‌ the best is yet to come. I cannot wait to see how⁤ the next few years unfold.”

Broughton also expressed gratitude for the support received over the years.

“It has been one of the greatest honors and⁤ blessings of my life to create⁣ and⁤ share this ⁢space with you ‍all. I⁢ will miss you​ all dearly,”⁢ she said. “My sincerest thanks and‍ deepest gratitude for all of your support over the years.”

Many customers expressed sadness about the store’s closure in the comments section.

“So sad⁤ to see‍ this post… although​ not often enough I ​enjoyed binge shopping at ‌your store,” said Anita Nasuto ⁢in a comment. “It was a⁢ treat to walk through your door ‌and⁣ find so ‍many irresistible⁣ gifts and ‍special items for myself. They will mean even more to me now. ⁣Sincerely hoping you find a most ⁢rewarding ​path ahead. Very best wishes ⁣and thanks for adding such class to ‌that corner.”

The store will offer sales until it closes, all of which are final.

“Most items are 30/40/50% off, any‍ item without a sale ⁢tag⁣ is 10% off,” Broughton said. “The store will remain open Thursday-Sunday through mid-March. Please come use⁤ your gift cards! We also hope to​ have a tent sale‌ this May, details⁣ to follow, and a holiday shop somewhere in the capital district this holiday season.”

Don’t miss out on the ⁤chance to ⁢grab some unique items ‌for ⁤your home before the store closes its doors for good!
