I'm feeling a little fragile. In eight days we have gone from this...
My husband is exhausted from removing walls, hoicking furniture, trying to fit the contents of a large shop into a small garage and put up with me bleating constantly that we can not possibly part with 'that'... it will come in handy some day. The large items of furniture were snapped up between three customers last weekend. There wasn't time for a clearance sale. Yesterday we made several visits to the tip and then closed the door. All the stencils, paints, brushes and 'on line' items were hauled upstairs to the mail order office and rearranged onto newly prepped shelves. We intend to continue to serve our customers in person when they need it. All our sample books will still be available for browsing. The office is not as pretty as the shop...but it's a lot warmer!
Thank you everybody that made the time and effort to visit us over the past fifteen years, we have met some lovely people. We intend to exhibit at more shows in the future so I hope that we will meet more of them. Moving upstairs and online was the sensible thing to do but I know that I will miss this space. Funny I never noticed the lovely light when the place was full.
