An update on my fabric shop project

It’s been crazy busy these last weeks. The entire shop has been expertly painted and the floors are professionally cleaned. I’ve bought new shelfs, I’ve been gifted some beautiful pieces of used furniture from another shop that’s been redecorating. I’ve moved all the items around a dozen times, give or take. The electricians have worked their magic, and there was light once more. The shop opened Tuesday March 31, and after the big opening sale was done, things have calmed down somewhat. This may  be a result of the great weather we’ve been having lately, and I was expecting to experience a spring/summer decline in shoppers. Still, the first weeks of having an open fabric shop have been very rewarding, and I love all the sewing related discussions I get to have with my customers 🙂 Now I have to find ways to bring new customers in, order any notions currently out of stock in the shop and make plans for the future. There is so much I want to do, and patience not being one of my virtues, it’s a little hard to focus and not start doing everything at once. I really hope this shop will become all I want it to be! Now some pictures to show how the shop’s progressed toward possible-to-open-material. And soome pics of my lovely selection of fabrics and haberdashery. Enjoy 🙂
