Let's get to poppin'

The pop-up shop is open for business at 1130 Dragon #170 until it's time to move into our permanent space. It's been a bit of a slow go, because several of us...including my daughter...have been sick this week, making it hard to get things moved and set up.

However, after going to the doctor Tuesday and getting tons of prescriptions, she and my SIL put in a punishing days Wednesday and yesterday and got finished. Even before the dust had settled and all the furniture was arranged, they were making sales, which indicates that customers have missed being able to drop by the store.



They used Instagram to let Facebook followers know they were open for business,
even though the floor hadn't been set  yet.

When they closed up last night, the floor was set.

Since this is a temporary space, we're not putting anything on the walls or hanging chandeliers. Customers will be able to see those pieces online.

  2. Oh Dana, I would love to live in Texas, only for visiting the shop. You have great furniture. The chairs and the coffeetable and the teak console and and and. I wish we would have such a nice shop here in the middle of nowhere in Germany...
    Wish you all the best for you and your daughter!

    1. I'm so glad you like what you can see of our inventory. My daughter is working on a brand new website for the store with an e-commerce feature so you can buy online. I'll announce the launch of the site on the blog. We plan to ship internationally. :)

    1. Sick or not, I think we're all excited about having a store open again.

      My daughter is on several prescriptions for her sinus infection, and I just got back from the drug store after stocking up on more OTC cough medicine, so we'll be better soon. Being sick is such an inconvenience though!
