It’s official!

It’s official! The window has been lettered. There’s no denying this is really a shop now. That line going across is a shelf that was there when I moved in. I’ve always wanted to remove it, but that was more complicated than it looked, so it’s still there. There are a lot of reflections in the window and I’m still unhappy with that old, green paint. I just can’t figure out what color to use instead. It needs to be something that’s historical, not a trendy color. I think we’re going to see about maybe getting the buildings put on the historical register.


I did tell a few people and was open officially on Saturday. Not everything was priced, still isn’t, but we had it looking decent. A few friends dropped by and a few curious wanderer-ins. Or would that be wanderers-in? Made a few sales, enough to help me get a feel for the process. Easing into things is much more my style than jumping in with both feet.

Here are pictures of some of the areas:

Spindles from the old Birmingham courthouse, iron bracket and a stack of Southern agricultural books.
That iron stand looked nekkid on the bare, cement floor, so we gave it a “grass” rug. It looks better in person than in the picture.
Old shopping cart in the front window.
The “Blue” shelves. My handy dandy hubby made those shelves. Am I a lucky girl or what?
The back window. Sorry the picture is so dark.

I feel like I can relax a little now. Maybe stay home and clean the house. I might actually cook a meal! And who knows? Maybe I can get back into the blogging habit. I sure hope so. I miss it. Miss seeing what all of you are doing.

There’s still a lot to do before the grand opening next month, but I can see daylight now. Whew!
