31 March 2008 - 20:19Moving Right Along
DA and I spent a good portion of yesterday getting all the last bits and pieces out of the old spot.
When we had finished, washed up, last minute checked and locked up, we were walking away from the end of a pretty important era. After 2 years, the shop where I started out became too small. I hope I never have to move shops again. What a pain! Stuff has a way of accumulating, especially in dark seldom used places like the back alley and the basement. Needless to say, I found all kinds of stuff I’d forgotten about over the last two years.
Oh well. That chapter is closed, and we are working on making the new spot a big success, now that we are “officially” open. We had a soft opening on Saturday, which was great. We didn’t exactly break any sales records, but we did manage to let folks know we’re here. The weather has yet to cooperate. Still in the 30s, and still snowing. All I can say is, I hope spring comes hard and fast. We won’t need rain until August at this point….
Here are a few shots of the new place from Saturday.
