Open For Business



Wow!
This has been some more week for me!
We got home from Texas on Monday night.
Tuesday morning I was at the shop bright and early to finish the painting.
My dear daughters painted the whole shop while we were gone!
Can you believe that?
Only the front doors and some trim work need to be done!
Picture the place MINT green, with forest green carpet.
The girls didn't take any before pics, sorry!
But they did a great job painting!
First time in my life anyone has done anything so thoughtful and helpful for me!
Momma got some pay back!


This is the main room.
This room is 18ft. by 24 ft.
Pretty darn small.


The next two pictures are the back room, Sarah is taking this room.
Can't wait to show you some of her fun stuff!



And these next two pictures are of the vault!
It's really tiny and dark!
Gonna need a lot of lights.



I was a little worried I wouldn't have enough things to fill the shop
since we sold so much in Texas,
but I had held back a few things and scrounged around and found some more!


Got to the shop yesterday morning to put some finishing touches on the place.
Opened the door at 11 am. and with in a few minutes of opening had my first customers.
Right away they bought several things,
I said wait, wait let me snap a few photos!







These are all the photos I could get in a short time.
I will be decorating the vault this week!
Today is the first day I've had off in over a month,
I even laid down for a two hour nap this afternoon, and boy it felt good!
