We are off and running!! Lots of progress, many great things happening and so much more work to be done- all of which is leaving my head spinning…but we are doing great! We’ve had a few meetings with a great handyman who is going to help us spruce up 7527- he should be starting next week. We picked out some fab wood-ish flooring and even bought our first piece of furniture for the store. yay!! I have taken a bunch of “before” photos that we will post this week and of course will spotlight plenty of “after” pictures when the work is done.
Next week we are headed to the LA Gift Show, hoping to find plenty of cute gifty type items for the shop. Before then we have to nail down paint colors, finalize lighting plans, select a security company and get phones hooked up. We are still on the hunt for unique display pieces as well as the perfect checkout counter. We are planning to go to a flea market in Pasadena next weekend to see what we can dig up. That is really T’s area of expertise, so I’ll let her report on all that.
Also- our logo is done! It is amazingly fabulous. We are going to use it and our new colors to completely revamp the website and blog. I can’t wait to unveil it to you all- hopefully before the end of the month.
I’m off to continue entering inventory in our POS software- fun times 😉
