all systems go...

hello my little friends, i can let you in on my little secret and if you click here you can even see what our new shop looks like (without all of our goodies inside of course).
Renata and i will be spreading our pretties out in some rooms of Couts Cottage in Petrie Market Town with the one and only Linda of Lilly Cottage!!
granted the shop wont be as big as LILLY COTTAGE was but it will have the same feel and Renata and i will add our little touches and i expect we will grow as crafters as well. so expect more of the same and new products as well. having a space means that we don't have to think of the elements which at times determines what we make and take to the markets. this way Renata can display her jewelery and art work without the wind knocking over her displays!
it really is going to be a grand experience, Renata and i both made a commitment of a full year to this market stall when we began in May this year and now with this newest development we will be able to extend that commitment...of course there is no way this could be a reality without joining forces with Linda. she has the credibility, business sense and reputation that we lack but we will not let her down, this is going to work and look great at the same time!
now all we need is to fit out the shop with shelving and cupboards and have a 'staff' meeting to iron out all the workings of the shop...it really is exciting to say the least. it feels like i am inching closer to my dream job!
all i can think about is the shop and with that in mind i am going to be doing up an old cot to turn it into a day bed of sorts which will act as a cupboard on which we can display cushions and string some of my heart garlands. we also thrifted this shelf..
which i will paint and 'shabby up' to house some of the smaller trinkets and art works. it has hooks on the back so it can be hung or stand wherever we feel fit.
tools ready... i will post an after shot for sure.
so if you live locally and feel a visit is in order come to Old Petrie Town and visit Lilly Cottage and Friends, we will open the doors the last Sunday of this month the 29th of August.
i can tell mumma cat is really impressed :) pretty isnt she?
