Grand Opening… happened

On a rainy Mother’s Day, we opened the shop officially!

The day before, we got the planters. (planters are old wine barrels from my friend J., filled with dirt and super heavy by the dear husband)

We mixed in some compost, made a big mess getting the plants in – and then, voila!

On Friday, we ran an ad in the local e-letter Portland Picks (scroll down to Mother’s Day Hip Happenings #8), got some free press in the Mercury , ran for more food… and were set for Sunday.

The turnout was amazing, jewels were picked up from the cases and clothing hangers tossed aside – in all a great success.

Even the guys were kept happy while their ladies shopped.

Of course, we haven’t completed everything yet. The MAN bench (above) needs fabric to match the overall decor, the chandelier awaits completion and the neon sign isn’t up yet.

We’ll be busy for a while longer.

Yours truly.
