We're Open For Business!!!

Yup, we did it!! We opened the shop on November 1st. It was lots of work, and of course, thousands of last minute things that had to be done. But when we opened the doors on Friday morning at 9am, we were so pleased to have shoppers waiting outside. The weather was not on our side, with high winds and heavy rain, I thought some people might decide it was best to wait until another day, but we were so pleased with how many of you made the trip to see us!!

Thursday night, my hubby and I were there quite late, putting on the finishing touches. Once he got the sign on the front of the building, I had to take a picture. It was raining and dark, but just couldn't wait any longer.
One of the best things about the two days, was getting to meet some of you! Several ladies from around the province made their way here to be a part of my big day! Thank you so much.


And I've been promising pictures of the shop, so here are a few. My daughter was here to help us out on Saturday, as an artist, she gets shots from a much different perspective than what I think to do, so these are her shots from yesterday. Hope you enjoy the pics, get inspired or even better, I hope you decide to get in the car and come see me!! Be sure to introduce yourself if you do!! :)

  1. Hi Darlene, Congratulations on your opening. All the pictures look great. Hope to see more in the future. I'm from southwestern Ontario, so will not make it to visit until next summer. Will you be having a web site for ordering products. Enjoy your new venture, but do take care of yourself too.
