It’s a moving story …

In October 2017, we moved our store to a brand new location.  Around the corner.  You’d think a short move would be easy, wouldn’t you?  Wrong!  We closed our doors for 2 weeks, and it took 4 days of truck loading and unloading (2 loads per day) to get the stock across to the new shop.  Another week of trying to build shelving and display the stock in the nicest possible way.  It was very difficult, very emotional and very tiring, but we did it.  In spite of not having electricity connected on time, and pushing it to the edge with our telephone and internet connection!

Here’s a few photos of the old store slowly being packed up and dismantled and the new shop in all it’s finery!
