People are Really CURIOUS about What the Heck we are.

Anytime people walk by and see us in the store they try to come in. We had to hang up a sign so they aren't confused when they walk into a half set up shop.

It's a pretty good problem to have.

Four Days In.... We Have the Makings of a Store.

This thing is shaping up nicely. We have a painted staircase. We have a new, beautiful ceiling color. The upstairs has three coats of bright yellow on one wall and one coat of gray on the other three. Shelves for prints have been installed in the retail space and Lauren Magic Erasered all the tiles. She also painted some cute characters for the front window so people can continue to wonder what the heck we're doing in here.

Translation: IT'S STARTING TO LOOK LIKE A REAL STORE.

Signage Woes

Geez! Who knew getting a sign for our store would be so complicated! More design reviews, permits, approvals from the market and bids from signage companies. In the end our 12 foot x 30 inch sign will be amazing (and expensive)!

Lauren's dad is making some of our displays! Here's one of them (almost done: needs the back legs, sign on top, and stain).
