CLOSING SELLWOOD STORE! Consolidating to Fremont and STARS

Wow! Now that is a title I never thought I would have on my blog!!! Since opening our Fremont store in October, I have found that I just can't be stretched quite that much! I haven't had a day off since April, and really, really want to have some time to do my decoupage, vintage found object, funky art projects and just can't find enough time in the day...so... we will be consolidating our 2 1/2 stores (keeping my STARS mall space!) and Fremont (which is walking distance from my house!).
What I really wish I could do is find 12 other artist/vintage lovers to share the Sellwood space as an art studio/retail space. So...we still have the lease until May, unless it gets re-leased before that (we have the BEST landlords in the WHOLE WORLD!)- but if you would be interested in a studio space, let me know. It is about 750 square feet of wonderful natural light, with 13 foot ceilings.
Or, if you want a shop of your own, let me know and I will get you more details. The rent is $1250 a month.
I will keep you all posted...

Oh Mel, I know it pains you to close a shop, but your shops are so fantastic and you'll still have Fremont and your Stars booth. I haven't seen Fremont yet, but know it's just fantastic (because fantastic is what you do!)
Hang in there, it's tough all over....
Love ya bff,
Gail

I've been there, I understand! I truly do. It's very hard, but I promise you'll be happier.
