The papers are all signed and the key is in my hand! I am about to unlock the door to a lifelong dream.
What the picture doesn’t communicate is my giggling like a school girl and the silly happy dance I am doing at that moment.
I am one starry eyed girl right now. Dreaming about Demo, Design and Colors. I want the feel to be right, I want the look to be inviting and I want the atmosphere to be so welcoming to my guests that they spend real time in my shop.
I have visions of embracing my Missouri roots by serving Sweet Tea and cookies to shoppers who want to relax in a cozy chair while leafing thru 100 year old books.
My goal is to get back to what retail used to be, a true experience. That small town family feel where you create real bonds with your clients.
But before that can happen there is a lot to be done! Time to roll up my sleeves and get to work!
