This Happened

You may have already seen it on my Facebook or on my Instagram but I should make it blog official. I signed a lease on a small store front this week! Ah! That deserves some more exclamation marks!!!!!!!!

Funny how pretty much every friend I have told has responded with 'well, it's about time...'.

store1
store2
store3

I signed on a cute, bright place downtown Hamilton that I will pack full of awesome. Some vintage, some new, some clothes, some jewels and yup, lots of awesome... The store needs work but I'm hoping to be open late November and I'm still finishing up the landscape season... so basically things are going to get crazy around here.

I'll obviously give more information once I get some big details settled but you are all invited for opening night, so get your passport in order if you have a border to cross! And if my next few posts are in all caps, I APOLOGIZE, IT'S JUST HOW EVERYTHING IS SOUNDING IN MY HEAD RIGHT NOW!!!! EEEEEEEEEKKK!!!!!!
