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.

Lacey from Tom’s Girls Boutique, she has the wonderful clothes and was at our Christmas Shop Hop

BackRoads Classroom Update

We are so excited about all the new space we have gained in the store and in the new paint room! Our big table for our classes finally came in and it is wonderful – however, we thought it was going to be a standing height table and it is a regular size table. Okay.. we can go with that. We then realized that we have room for one more table and have ordered a standing height table and so when you take a class you will have the option to stand or sit! We love having options!! The standing height table is backordered though –SURPRISE!😳 Its just that kind of year.

We will go ahead and start planning classes and we will try to get them going in April. So stay tuned. We will be sending out an email soon on what will be offered. If you want to be on that email list and haven’t already signed up for the email, please send us an email at or a PM on Facebook and we will get you on the list. Classes initially will be limited to 4-6 people so we can spread out.

Thank you all for your patience on the classes – we know everyone is so ready to do fun things and we hope to do our part with that soon!

This week at BackRoads 1/21-1/24

Janice has brought in some Vintage Barware and we still have a few Mid Century Modern pieces. We have a really nice set of MCM (mid century modern) end tables and coffee table. All pieces have had their little tops sanded and restained in Dixie Belle Paints “No pain Gel stain in Walnut”. The set won’t last long!

Sherry of Sweet T brought in a really nice up-cycled Black cabinet that she has transformed into a Bar. It features a metal shelf inside for hanging your wine glasses and a built in wine rack. Janice filled it up with all sorts of cocktail shakers and “bar accessories”. She even brought in a few 1950/60’s Albums.

We still have our farmhouse theme going on. There are several tables to choose from and a few cabinets. All sorts of functional primitive antiques and kitchen wares are packed in there with a farmhouse feel.

Added to all this is a touch of red and pink for Valentines day. We have mugs, vintage valentines, hearts of all types and maybe a random bunny or two hanging around!

We are open Thursday – Sunday, 9:30 – 4:30 and would love to see you!

Shop early for the best selection!!

New Paint/Classroom coming soon!

Construction update: The soon to be paints and more showroom and classroom is moving forward pretty quickly but, of course, Pam and I are anxious for it’s completion so we can move everything in. The lights are here but, the track lighting still needs to be purchased, as does the sink and its cabinet. We have an idea to spice up the floor and, if it works out, it will complete the look. A new year and a new room will be a great addition to Back Roads plus Dixie Belle Silk paint is arriving soon. We are excited!
