I am still in shock as we sign our lease to our first commercial space in North Bend, Oregon. Waiting for my husband to pinch me and tell me I've been dreaming. It's all true though. This is really happening. The excitement is unreal and yet I'm more terrified than I've ever been. This is a huge new responsibility that comes with all manner of dollar signs attached to it.
This is another big step that I'm taking with my little company who has become my second child. I started this business three years ago in an 1100 square foot apartment with a colicky infant and the world's most supportive husband. As the company grew, it felt like things were moving at a snails pace. Looking back now, three years went by quickly!
Enough talk though...wanna see the space?? Ok...here it is:
We plan on opening on October 8, 2015. Thank goodness we have time to stock up product and get our display pieces ready. I'll be sure to share shop updates along the way!
