GRAND OPENING IN THE MORNING!!!

Not sure if we will sleep through the alarm - but we intend to be there in the morning from 8.30 am!!!

See you there............... we will have a little bottle or two of 'something', a few crackers and some cheese........ but do remember, we do not have the facilities to keep much cool for too long, so those that don't come to see us by 3pm willl miss out. ............ not to worry, both Rainer and I will take care of any excess.........

Progress is Slow but Sure.........

Slowly, slowly there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Spent the whole week painting, painting, painting.  The walls and floor look brilliant.  I can't believe how much it has opened the whole place up by painting the whole area in white and beige.  I'm very happy with it.

Have erected a little private area in the back and now will slowly work on more stock to fill the gallery.

The shop mannequins are now in place - that was fun putting together.

This photo tells it all...........

If we're totally on track we will be trading by next weekend (15-16th May) from 8.30 am - 3.30 pm.

Moving along.........

Have spent the last couple of days scraping, painting, rolling and generally renovating.

The carpet has been rolled up, complete with the remains of some poor dead bird, and dumped into the rubbish bin.

The walls have been sanded down and prepped.  Today we rolled a couple of coats of white paint onto the walls, plus a coat of pavement paint onto the floor.

Hoping we can be trading by the 29th May - will let you all know.

Feeling very frail and acheing all over............. But it's a means to an end................
