Almost there...

Settings are finally starting to take shape, as we find all the stuff packed away in boxes...

I've been crazy busy making soaps too, trying to get the shelves all filled before our June 5th open house...not to mention the orders that are filing in from my friends out of state
and those in the area.






We are having way too much fun arranging, you know how it goes and having a new space to work out of, really makes the creative juices flow.
We had quite a few curious souls walk in yesterday afternoon, some seeing the marquis sign, which surprised me, but after listening to what they are saying, they really want the mall to come alive again.

Many of these women walk the mall in the winter months, out of the weather...
we got a comment from one saying we broke her stride, as she couldn't resist taking a sidetrack through the shop...
yeah, that's what I'm talkin' about!
Having the dance studio right across the hall, gives us a lot of visibility to those socker/dance moms that are waiting on their kids.

We are open today for biz, so stop out and say high to Pipes...
I'm home makin' soap...
See ya there...

To bad you can't bottle and sell the talent you and Piper have, you could retire a very rich lady.The shop looks fabulous,every display is so inviting ,I can't wait to come see it. Are you still calling it the Candle Shed? I bet Scratchy loves all the smells from the soap. Still hoping to see you soon.

Awesome - absolutely awesome. I'm jealous for a number of reasons - your store isn't closer, you have the coolest stuff, you arrange with spectacular vision. Best of luck (and I want the trellis-y looking things!)
