Opening Day!

Well, that last 7 days has been hard work. Sorry we haven't posted much, but you'll understand we had other priorities.

We opened today at 10 o'clock and our first customer came a minute later (and no, it wasn't a set-up job). A more-or-less continuous stream of customers through the morning too, both locals and visitors - and we're hugely grateful to all of you.

Here's what it looks like. I'm no longer embarrassed about showing pictures of the floor thanks to Ann & Jenny working until midnight yesterday to get it all tidy.



Lots of findings ...


Lots of loose beads ...

Glass, pearls,tools, wires, display stands, storage boxes, mats...

A big wall of gemstones ...


Seed beads ...

Chains, and some secret boxes we're not letting on about yet ...

A whole load more Chinese glass, Czech glass, more wires, threads, cords and so on ...

Heaps of fun acrylic stuff ...

And that shop sign I promised you a picture of.

It's starting at long last to feel like we have a business instead of a spreadsheet and a rent bill.

Good feeling.

Now what, you may wonder, happened to all that junk that has been littering the shop floor for the last week or two? Well, there's a reason we're not showing you any pictures of the kitchen area at the back!
