Chalk wall going up for our special announcements and new in stock stuff. I know some really special people to us that LOVE to do chalkboard art work.
These other light fixtures will really brighten up the open shelving that will be there. The light there in the middle will be a fan once we get the blades on. And check out that cool trunk we found back at the farm above the door.

The blue tape on the wall is where the metal logo for the store is going. Do you know of anyone who does a good job with this?

I can't wait to see our flower stand FILLED with flowers!

We got the light fixtures up over the checkout counter area. They look a lot better than we thought they would. They are so much better than the fluorescent lights. 

9/16

Floors are sealed and ceiling holes patched ✅

Now to get the framework up for the new ceiling tiles. Oh....and to strip and paint them.

We're waiting on some electrical work to get done too. It's always something!

Brian has had several all-nighters at the store trying to get it closer to opening. We got a neato chalkboard wall, patched the ceiling holes, and staged the lighting for the electrician.

All of the light fixtures are in as well as the ceiling fans 🤗

We’re getting the checkout area laid out and the shelves are about to go up.

I can’t wait to see the ceiling tiles up! They are out of an old store in nashville and they'll fit in perfectly in historic downtown Florence.
