The most amazing news!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've been tossing around the idea for over a year now about whether I should have a store again. I had one in '98 with my Mom and another one in '05. I loved them, I hated closing them but circumstances out of my control at those times forced me to. At that point I made the decision to hit the road and vend at shows all over the country. I'ved loved every minute of it(even the super hot days, windy ones and rainy ones, even the drama filled ones) and I'm still going to do shows, but trying to be a little smarter about where I go. So, this Summer I started looking at warehouse or Industrial warehouse spaces here in the East Valley. I want to bring something to this side of town. I love my Phoenix peeps and will continue to support all of them, love them. But I feel this side of town is needing a little more.
So, last week I made an offer on a space that will let me test the waters about my crazy ideas I have swirling in my head. I was expecting them to say NO, I really was. It would have been a way out to put it off on someone else. Well, the powers that be said YES! OMG! I got this news on Thursday right before the Country Living Fair. The news sent my stomach into a spiral! Then all the fears and doubt come swimming in. "Can I do this? Do I have enough stuff? What the hell is wrong with me? Have I lost my mind?" You know, the usual suspects of doubt. :) Yesterday I signed the Lease and we are off and running! I hope you will come and check out what I think will be a fun and cool place to come to for an occasional class, Guest Vendors, vintage shopping, and if you need a cool prop for a wedding, birthday, or whatever special occasion you can plan up, you come and see what we have to offer.
Of course I pick the busiest time of the year for me to start this little adventure, so stick with me. I've got lots of ideas, amazing talented friends I want you to meet, and super cool vintage finds to share with you! I'll be posting updates here on my blog and over on my Facebook Page. So make sure you LIKE my Page for all the news! I'll have photos of the transformation and all the important details coming next week. Stay tuned!!
Super Amazingly Blissfully Yours, Tricia
