Store Progress Update!

We've been working really hard these past few weeks and have made great progress in the store -  we're getting so excited about opening!  In addition to finishing up the painting, moving in our studio, and taking care of a bunch of legal/paperwork business, we have been continuing to acquire and build fixtures and have begun receiving work from artists and designers!  In the next week we're going to post some photos of some of the amazing things that we have received recently (which will be for sale so soon when we open!).  In the meantime, though, we wanted to post a couple progress photos of how things are coming together.   In the photo above, our kind pals Jon, Matt and Greg (of Leopold's Books) are putting the finishing touches on some shelving.  That white shelving will be on one wall, and the rest of the shop will have mainly vintage fixtures.  These steamer trunks are so great - we're trying to decide what to display on and in them:

We're also looking for the perfect spot for this "best sellers" rack and the school chalkboard behind it:
 
This weekend we'll be working on the lighting and picking up a few more fixtures.   We'll post more photos soon!
