It has been a while since our last post because we’ve been busy like bees working on the store. We’ve almost finished patching up the drywall, have installed all of the trim, and have begun washing the walls and priming them for painting. In the bathroom, we’ve ripped out the original materials and have gotten most of the new trim and fixtures installed…and are going to start laying tile tomorrow!
Next week we hope to finish up the priming and get the bathroom finished. Then we’ll strip and stain the floors and finish up with painting. Once that’s done we’ll start assembling shelves, get the furniture in, and we’ll be just about ready to go!
More interestingly, we’ve received some more of our inventory! Just last week we got in a shipment of Zara from Filatura Di Crosa and a box of cashmere and cashmere-silk blend yarns from Jade Sapphire. It’s all very lovely stuff and we can’t wait to show it off. Next week we’re hoping to receive our Unicorn Tails from Madelinetosh!
There are still a few weeks to go before we can get the store open, of course. We’re still going through the permitting process with the county and are told that’s going to be three weeks at least. We’re also working with Garret Sign to create our exterior lighted sign, which has to meet the building owner’s approval before they can start construction. We’re hoping for mid-August but will keep you informed about our progress!
