shop beginnings

i took this photo two nights before we first opened. we had worked so hard to get ready-- painted and cleaned the space, gotten new lighting, and then searched and searched for products and display pieces. by this point we had been working every day for months on our shop. two nights before we opened we were almost ready-- AND we could see how far we had to go.

starting out is hard-- we had no idea how much stuff we really needed to fill the space, for example. and though we had a clear vision of what we wanted the shop to be-- we had no idea what we were doing or how to go about any of the things we had to do to create and run a shop.

but still, at the point this photo was taken, i was absolutely thrilled with the whole thing! that is my daughter, cecelia, by the way. the kids used to love playing shop!
