Two More Days!!

Just two more days until the new shop opens!!! While the outside is still under construction the inside is coming along. Have I mentioned that the new shop is twice the size of the old one?? While it's not HUGE it is a lot bigger than what I'm used to. It's going to take a little while to fill it so that it doesn't look empty to me. :) If you are coming to a party next week (first week of August) you may have to dodge some scafolding/ construction on your way in....but don't let it deter you!!! I have been assured that there will definitely be a path to our frontdoor! Here is a picture of what the outside of the building is supposed to look like in a few weeks!! Our space is on the left! Cheers!!!!!!!!

Thursday, July 28, 2011's been a while!!

Hello fellow art lovers!! I haven't blogged in a long time but that's about to change! A lot has happened in the past 8 months. You have made our business grow and surpass our expectations to the point that we have to expand!!! So here I am again announcing the opening of a new location....Monday, August 1st we will be opening on the front of our current building. The space is double what we already have and more visible!!! Our website is still the same and we will be adding more samples and Kids Days!! Stay tuned!
