Her first big project will be revamping our website and adding an eCommerce feature, allowing us to sell directly from the site, as well as from V&M. There will also be an increased focus on sales to the trade.
Her active participation in the business will make it possible to travel as a family all over the country to bring vintage modern treasures back to Dallas. To that end, they are looking at a 27' Airstream that they can modify with sleeping quarters in front and space to carry furniture in back. If that project materializes, you can expect play-by-play posts here.
Once my daughter is working primarily from home at the end of this week, my responsibilities...both as babysitter and web editor...will be over, and I will be able to pay more attention to my blog and will be posting with much more regularity. It's a win-win all around.
To make the move easier, my SIL is having a huge sale at the current location, offering 30% off everything in the store and 50% off all his Gus* Modern floor models. Here's just one example of what you could get at 30% off...this gorgeous dropleaf dining table by Peter Hvidt and Orla Mølgaard-Nielsen, which is new to the store.

And, yes, I'm almost ready to reveal the new apartment. We've had some delays on the landscaping, but jackhammering has been done, rock and concrete have finally been hauled away and tilling was completed today. We'll lay concrete blocks and put down grass, and then I'll be ready to show you my new digs!
