Our last class of June was our Patriotic Star Class.  We had a lot of fun and created these sweet stars to go on our front door, mantel or wall.   

Our July classes will be posted soon, be sure and sign up early…. class size is limited and classes fill up quickly!

BackRoads Update – June 11, 2021

We have had a busy productive week and have been busy collecting all sorts of new items for the store. In every decor theme possible! Janice has loaded and unloaded her van 100x it seems the last week or so. I don’t know how she has that much energy but she does!

This week we are continuing our Southwest theme in the main room with an addition of Movie/cinema and then a little corner of modern decor. We have some great options for Dad’s Day!

We have a couple of classes coming up. Please see our list of classes under the “class heading”. We will be adding July very soon. If I can squeeze it in, I will be adding another 1 or 2 classes for June also.

We had a planning meeting for our Summer Shop Hop! We are excited about this event coming up and we will have vendors once again along with some new ones to fill our front porch and hall way. The Summer Shop Hop will be in August – more info to come soon!

Speaking of the porch, my (pam) mom & dad just finished planting our porch pots and they are blooming so beautifully. It makes for a very pleasant time of relaxing out there! The porch is always cool. So plan on spending a few minutes there just taking a short break with maybe cold brew coffee from Cabra or one of their delicious lemonades – whether our store is closed or open the porch is always there for your enjoyment!

Our next store themes will be coming soon – look for some Military/patriotic along with some vintage bedroom

We love visiting with you, please stop by and say hello!

BackRoads Classroom/paintroom near COMPLETION!

Our paint classroom is getting nearer completion. We await some shelving and a few details remain to be completed but the overall room makes us happy and functions beautifully.

Be sure and check out the June classes listed under the “classes” tab. We will be adding more classes as we go and look forward to fun projects with you!

BackRoads Update – May 14, 2021

We thought it might be nice to have kind of a weekly Backroads Update. Some weeks I (Pam) will write and some weeks Janice will write it and we will see how it goes 😀.

This week I am in Virginia. My daughter, Kaycee, graduated from Liberty University and we had the chance to fly out and see her graduate. It was a quick trip but one that we could not miss. This, however, left Janice at the store all alone, once again 😳, to get it set up and going for this week. I’m sorry Janice!!

We have finally started to receive some of our shipments! We had ordered some really cute garden sort of things for the Plant Show last week and they did not arrive in time. Of course, they started coming in on Monday of this week. Oh well… We now have a store full of fun garden items!

The front room features a just in, wonderful “Avocado Green” suede couch. Hey did you know Avocado Green is back?! Along with that, we received this cool industrial, metal, drum-like, round storage table. It is so unique and makes such a nice corner end table. In our little back room we have cats, dogs and all things animal! The larger back room is filled with garden items.

One of the reasons we have reduced our hours is so that we can plan some late afternoon and night time events. Janices motto lately is “Girls just wanna have fun” and we are planning some fun things – so stay tuned and we will keep you posted.

Expect the Unexpected! 😍

Pam & Janice

Spring Mother’s Day Plant Sale

BackRoads will be setting up some awesome new Spring and Summer Garden items for this event.  We are so excited to partner with Erin at The Harvest Trail.  Please come out and see us and do a little Mother’s Day shopping for your mom or yourself!  Hope to see you there!!  

BackRoads Closed Thursday and Friday

BackRoads will be closed Thursday, May 6 and Sunday, May 9

We apologize for any inconvenience this causes!!  We are getting ready for the Spring Mothers Day Plant Sale at The Harvest Trail with Erin.   We are also taking Sunday off to spend with our families.   Please see the post on the Plant Sale and come out and see us there.  The store will be open Friday and Saturday, 9:30-5:30

Spring Bunnies & new Candles

These Spring Bunnies are just the cutest things ever! I know, I know… if you saw our video, we said the bunnies were going away! These are not just Easter bunnies though they are more along the line of garden themed. It would have been nice if they had arrived in time for Easter but at this point we are just happy for any shipments!!

We now carry “Keepers of the Light” candles from A Cheerful Giver, and we love them. I have been buying these candles personally for years and they are my favorites. We will be carrying seasonal fragrances.

What we like about them:
• they are a 1-pour candle, which means they have fragrance throughout the whole candle not just the top layer.
• the company hires special needs/disabled people and allows them to work what ever they can, even if it is only 1 hour
• they are made with a high grade paraffin, have a long burn time and they burn evenly. 
• they come in 3 sizes. 
Papa Jar, 34oz $24.95, 155 hour burn 
Mama jar, 22oz, $19.95, 125 hour burn 
Baby Jar, 6oz, $9.95, 30 hour burn


We are having our SPRING SHOP HOP on Saturday, March 20, 2021, 10am-5pm, along with several other similar businesses in Albuquerque. When you visit each shoppe you will receive a free gift fit for a “big girl” Easter Basket.

Backroads will also be hosting several pop-up vendors! We are excited to try this out, see how it goes and then we may expand during the summer months! We will also have our “famous” BackRoads maple nut cookies and other refreshments.

The Vendors we have coming are:

Jen from Taylored Orange

Sherry from Sweet T, Jen and Sherry had all sorts of things in the paint room during Christmas

Tesha from Fitz your Home, she has the beautiful wooden flower arrangements that we used to carry

Erin from The Harvest Trail, she may bring baby bunnies, she is the one who has had the beautiful fresh flower arrangements in the summer.
