I’ve chosen an opening date : November 29th. Black Friday.
The busiest shopping day of the year… though most likely, not for me. But that’s OK.
I thought it was a good day to remind folks to shop local. This gives me a good month to get stocked up, and it’s still a week
before White Christmas in West Brookfield, which will indeed be a busy day!
So… as far as renovations go, I’m awaiting the installation of my new windows, and I’ve still got a bit of painting to do,
and my signs are ordered. It’s coming together so quickly! I’ve got a few appointments with sales reps scheduled, and that
is lots of fun!
So…. time ticks on, and life is GOOD!
I am opening a shop. Well… I am moving my studio to a larger location, AND opening a shop. I will actually be getting up in the morning, and leaving the house, for the first time in a LONG time. My new studio will be open to the public. It’s not a very busy area around here, so I don’t expect the shop to interfere to much with my work… lol… but I am so excited! One of my favorite things to do is design spaces in my head… this time it’s for real, and that makes it so fun! I did it once before with my bead shop in Concord, MA. , but that was a long time ago, and I’ve learned a few thing since then. I get a “do-over”!! It will be my little world… a permanent show booth where I can be working while I hang out and talk with people about what I do: The perfect version of Show & Tell. 🙂 So today, I went and picked up some stuff from Ikea, (my idea of shopping heaven) and here’s a sneak peek at my shop 🙂 The idea is that the shop decor will be neutral… black, white and grey… so that the merchandise will be the only color in the space…. what do you think?
