We're Open!

We are officially OPEN! The city has approved our space and we get a C.O. on July 8, 2009 exactly 1 year and 8 months from when we purchased the building in November 2007. It has been a long haul and we are so thankful to be here!

We have Visitors

Not really a visitor... daughter Claire plays dress up in our accessories and poses at our new entrance way.

Our friend Dorothy Price, a retired clothing designer from New York gives us lots of encouragement.

My college friend Marsha Pritchard visits from Colorado. She's looking for land in Washington County. As a kitchen and bath designer, she's seen it all and is very helpful with advice about how to work with a shall-we-say difficult contractor.

Peter Harrison, a furniture designer from Galway, checks in on our progress. You can see his gorgeous pieces at

Final Stages

Mitch and Darrell finish up the pipe railings, seems like there are miles of them. The rainy weather is not helping finish up this job!

We have a sign made up with our new "dba" name. Love the font on this and it will read well from the street.

Since code requires we have a smooth walk from sidewalk to ADA ramp, we decide to have other concrete walks as well to front entrance and from driveway
to Beekman porch entrance. More dirt piles....
