Progress on our store - The Vintage Bricoleur

Pin It
In the next few days before the store opens I will be sharing progress pics and also introducing the awesome, talented team of dealers that will be selling items in our store. 
 The Countdown has begun , 10 days till the Grand Opening Party.

O.K., so this is what we started with.

The space where our store is now. 
 This photo was taken November 1st.

This is how it looked yesterday, November 21st.

There were LOTS of pots to move.

And a small Koi holding tank.

Shelves had to be taken down, and iron statues had to be relocated.


These last three pics were taken in the same spot. 
 Looks a little different huh?

We (my Husband and son mostly)
are currently working on the inside. 
 My part, (making it look pretty), is coming soon.
  I have been helping though, here is a picture to prove it.

Up on the roof, glazing the siding to "age" it. 
Do you see the name DAN?  No, my husband did not put his name up there, it has been there for years and is part of the history of the building.  Pretty cool huh?  When we realized it was there, we thought hmm, this spot has been saved for us!

So again, Please join us
 December 2, 4 - 6 p.m. for the Grand Opening Party.

OK, let me get this straight - your cute little building is inside another building - an historical fruit packing shed, right? I can't wait to see it and go in. And, I look forward to seeing what you will have and the other sellers that will be sharing your special store. Oh, will there be a sign out front to direct us to go inside?

Helen, Yes we are a store within a very large packing shed along with several others. Oh, and yes there will be a sign. As I stated, we have a few things to do, but we will be ready! Look forward to seeing you.

Wow Terry! What a huge job to have to move all the pottery and statues! Your store front looks amazing! Like it's been there all along. You guys have amazing talent! I'm looking forward to coming by to see it when it's all done!
