Hello! We’re still alive! It’s been a while since the last post and A LOT has happened but you wouldn’t be able to tell by looking at the space. Why does construction always seem to take longer than you expect? And the paperwork – SO MUCH paperwork and research and emailing and phone call-ing involved. A lot of behind the scenes sort of work that doesn’t offer instant gratification. But hoping it all comes together in about say…two weeks? That’s right – we’re hoping to open for business on November 17th! Eek. Although we won’t have all of our inventory in yet, we will have the majority of our accessories and a few pieces of furniture available for holiday shopping! And once the rest of our inventory arrives (hoping early January), we’ll have an official grand opening. More details of our opening this month coming soon. In the meantime, here are photos of our progress so far:
Eric hard at work as always. I helped too, I swear.
The exterior is well underway! Should be complete by the end of the week – keep your fingers crossed! Things inside look good, but there is still plenty to be done.
We have new walls! Crazy how just the texture of your walls can make such a difference. The space already looks 10x better. Now we just need to finish the electrical, patch up the ceiling, install new fixtures, new baseboards and trim, paint, CLEAN, get in all the furniture, merchandise all of the inventory. Just a couple things left to do. Yikes! Okay, back to work.
