Certificate of Occupancy has been Granted!

I wasn’t going to make a big deal out of it, but I suppose we do kind of need to take a moment to celebrate.  After all, this has been quite the uphill learning curve for folks who’ve never opened a store before… or created an LLC… or negotiated the world of commercial electricity/brokers/water/carpet/paint/security/insurance…blardy blardy blarg!  The list is seemingly endless.

I’ve already filled up 20 sections of my 20 section expandable file..and it appears I might need a new one already, after two weeks.

Suffice to say, we’re pleased and scared as all get out!   We know it’s all going to come together and be fabulous, but there is still quite a lot to do before we are there.

If you are an artist with wonderful quality handcrafts, do please go and fill out our vendor form.  We’re getting a handle on the goods right now!

Can’t wait to meet and greet and get this thing going in the real word.

Steve and Chris

(in the meantime – as if I have any me-time, lol, I have accepted yet another sale on Etsy… so the making of concrete statuary and pots continues in between the business of opening a store!)
