While still working for Ralph Lauren I spot a small building and fall in love with it for my first shop on a dreary December day. After some thought (not much!) I go back to have another look and decide on taking two buildings for the new shop!
The main building is the first floor only - but has a nice sunny front room, and nice space in the other three rooms. Note interesting furniture left from previous shop owner! I see the potential and am already designing the rooms before the lease is signed.
Lesson: Only wrap your heart around a building for your new store after you have negotiated the lease!


  1. The dark hardwood floors are amazing, and the windows! OH THE WINDOWS!!!! I'm so jealous. What a beautiful shop. I'm curious though - what is the second floor?

  2. Beautiful shop. I am looking forward to exploring more of your wonderful blog.

    I came here, via Color Outside the Lines blog.

  3. Hello! I've just come from Artie Ben's blog - Color Outside the Lines and he said to come visit you! Oh, your blog is so beautiful! The shop is wonderful! I love the blue and white corner!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)
