Things are really coming together! We have heat! A phone number! New inventory arrives daily! If the rain ever stops, we’ll have a sign! We’ve been so overwhelmed by the support and excitement that the community has given us – really makes us feel welcome and that this was an idea who’s time had come…:) We’re so very looking forward to the Grand Opening weekend festivities next weekend, 11-7 on Saturday and 12-5 on Sunday- music, refreshments, demos, make and takes, a raffle, and some great shopping!
Check out these awesome soft sculpture dolls from Silent Orchid!
or not. But the news is so exciting! We will be open, starting February 25th at 11 am! Join us all weekend (11-7 on Saturday and 12-5 on Sunday) for shopping some great things made by real, factual humans in Virginia, making stuff of your own, buskers, makers demonstrating their craft and more! We’re still working out the details, but it’s sure to be a blast! If you are a local crafter that would like to do a demo, a busker that would like to play, or have any questions, please contact us at email@example.com.
Over the last several days, our artists have been bringing us their work, showing us new stuff their working on, we’ve been painting store displays, getting the heat fixed – and soon, we’ll actually have an honest to goodness phone number and be in the phone book! (Then we’ll BE somebody!) (ok for those of NOT over 30, go watch “The Jerk”. Right now. You won’t be sorry) Sorry. I’m kind of giddy- just soooo excited!
We still have a lot of work to be done, but it’s getting there!
In the mean time, go see Vicki at Five Points Farm Market on Sunday the 12th from 1-5- she’ll be there with the supplies to make cute little Valentines crafts! For free!
PS: Sneak peek at a few of the goods…:)
Ohmigosh. So much work to be done. LOVING every minute, though. The shop’s well on it’s way to being fully painted…beginning to meet with the artists(meeting new people, yay!)(btw, y’all, I’m meeting with a jewelry artist on Monday that shares studio space with a taxidermist…HOW COOL IS THAT?)…Eventually, I’ll even get our mugs up on here so you can meet the partners in crime behind this operation.
Speaking of artists, we’re loving the response we’re getting, but since we’re greedy and all…WE WANT TO SEE MORE!
Especially want to see wearables(hand pulled screen tshirts/clothing, redesigned/refashioned clothes, Virginia fashion designers), housewares/tableware, pet stuff, funky cool stationary, and possibly something we never knew we needed?
Thank you all for your support in this journey Michelle, Vicki, Marie, Ashley and I are taking…we can’t wait to get this thing in the air!
