Opening Day, at last!

The front of our great new location.  Hanging lanterns and a brand new awning will be added soon.
                              In case you missed it, We're OPEN!!
Our amazing landlord, Don, had these beautiful flowers delivered for our Friday night Open House.

This gorgeous fern was sent by Trish, my longtime friend in CA. Chris at The Cottage Gate picked a pot she thought would blend beautifully with our decor, and she was right. She delivered them herself so she could congratulate us on our brand new location. We had the perfect spot for it.
Nancy's daughter, Maggee, helped us get ready to open with every spare minute she had. She's our "Tech Dept" and got everything up and running for us. She also ran the cash register for us for our Open House. Thanks, Maggee!
Our friend, Nila, from Oregon who came up and spent a long week helping us unpack and get a million things done to reopen, sent this beautiful bouquet.
Don stopped by to wish us well before we opened.
It's been a long 2 months since we moved from our old location and an especially busy 3 weeks setting up the new one, but we are so happy to be here. We have a list of people too long to name here to thank for helping us in a dozen different ways. We couldn't have done it without them. But we do need to mention Don, our terriffic landlord who worked so hard to make the building beautiful, Nila & Diana who spent long days helping in so many ways, Maggee, who spent every free minute here, her brother, Ben, our faithful furniture mover, and our patient husbands, who hauled trailers full of furniture and boxes, unloaded same, and moved furniture around more than once. And we can't forget Linda, Donna and Bob, our marathon packers.
