I felt as if I had been gone forever!

having the store closed for over two weeks...
pulling out and selling the linoleum carpets is what started it all...
then when that was gone...spending the time cleaning, changing out the windows, shopping until I dropped (literally!)...
it felt so very good to open the doors last Friday...and having our regulars come in the door...
with stories, birthday news, and all sorts of needs/wants...
all of you that came, and loved the remodel...thank you so much!
all of you that came and told us how much you missed us...thank you sooooo much!
and thank you to all of my "sources"...that came through with furniture and items that you knew I would love...and saved them for me...
to Elaine...that went on "field trips" with me...thank you!
and thank you to Gail...that listened to me whine that "my feet were tired"...that" being closed meant that I wasn't making any money"...and all those other things that I whined about...(there were so many!)
to the very patient hubby and son that lived on take out and happy hour food and sandwiches...
all of these photos are from around the store...lots of newness on the shelves and tables...
I hope that you all can come and visit some day...there could be some "fun finds" waiting just for you...
and please know that if you are ever interested in anything pictured...just shoot me an email for more details...
and...thanks again for a great re-opening week-end!

Well, it all looks soooooo amazing! It must feel like a new store to you, it looks like one (although I loved the "old" one) too.
But I also know how changing things up can affect your attitude. It looks fresh, clean, and so perfectly vintage.
Hey, not a bad name for a store "So Perfectly Vintage".
Great job my friend :), as always I'm so proud of you!
