~My Grand Opening ~

It's almost time.
The Empty Nest
 Grand Opening 
is just around the corner and you are all invited!!
Clear you calendars on 
July 20th
because that's the day I get to cut the red ribbon and declare
 The Empty Nest
open for business.
I have been very busy getting the shop space ready for all of my wonderful customers.
I spend my days 
painting
arranging
decorating
pricing
putting it all together.
While I am working, women have been peeking in the windows 
and asking if they can take a look inside.
One nice woman asked to buy one of my painted vintage doors!
My inventory has been arriving...
I took delivery of my very first shop packages yesterday...
Yup, I have my own Fed-Ex guy!!
I always wanted one of those.

Remember this view of 92 Main Suite 102?
Well it's totally filled now!!!!!
Mr.Secret Agent has today off and we will be spending a marathon three days 
getting lot's done.
Stay tuned for all the 
Grand Opening 
details!
I would LOVE to see as many of my 
blog readers as possible come out to say 
HELLO!

Until next time...be kind and stay creative!

Argh! I cannot wait - too much! Good luck with the opening, may you be rushed off your feet and the shop emptied. XX (PS - I hope you've notified your local paper about your opening - get the press there, seriously, and plug the English/Annie Sloane/Oxford angle)

It's really happening! I am so excited for you!! That empty shell of a beautiful space is becoming cozy and wonderful ... I love all the fantastic things you have in there so far. I'm totally bummed that I won't be around for the craziness of the grand opening on the 20th ... I will be there in spirit, however, and every day after that whenever you need me.

I am so proud of you!
