As you probably already know
(because I complain about all the time!)
We've been looking for a retail space
Our criteria was making it difficult:
Lots of charm
Preferably an old building
great natural light
cute downtown location
studio space for teaching classes
doesn't break the bank!
Needless to say, the search was NOT going well!
Enter our friend Sarah...
Sarah has a cool company called
using recycled wine bottles
(they smell AMAZING!)
She has more space than she needs,
and she doesn't do retail
(only wholesale right now)
so much of her gorgeous, CHARMING space
located DOWNTOWN with loads of NATURAL LIGHT and STUDIO
was going to waste
She offered to let us take over most of the shop
and we couldn't say YES fast enough!
(honestly, we don't even have to do very much!)
Double doors (necessary for moving furniture in and out!)
Huge front windows...that cute awning
brick walkway, new benches and old-fashioned street lamps
the front area is ideal for retail sales
(including paint sales! Which brand, you ask? That will be a surprise!)
In back, a fabulous area for retail mixed with studio space
for classes and such
The back alleyway is even full of character, as well as great spots for staging photos!
If you're not swooning yet...
it's even on a brick road!
We will be working hard in September getting the space ready
and we're hoping to be open in early October
We'll keep you posted!
