When we purchased the space next door, the building everyone knew as the auction house, we certainly had our work cut out for us. But we were up to the task! Who doesn’t love searching through old treasures, finding keep-ables and getting rid of junk. We love a good cleanse. Here are some before, during and after shots of our new space:
The greenhouse out back was filled to the brim with stuff!
Our good friend, handy-woman and all-around hard worker, Josée, will never being accused of forgetting to have a good laugh.
With the weeds thoroughly whacked and the greenhouse largely emptied, we were left with a few goodies.
The ceiling: a bit of a fixer-upper.
The saloon-inspired facade may be missed by some, but not by us.
Stefanie, sanding the walls, loves a good DIY project.
Now, it begins to feel a bit more like home.
At 17′ long – is it going to be a bar or a cash counter? Either way; it’ll be gorgeous!!!
Selecting wood stains.
I love the smell of sawdust in the morning.
Beautiful pine, endless possibilities.
First things first; get the tree up…
… and finish the cash counter.
Putting up the new sign!
Slowly but surely…
And then things got really pretty!
The tree we’ve all been waiting for…
No, it ISN’T possible to have too many baskets!
And here is Christine, doing a final touch-up before our first day open!

It’s still a work in progress with many changes to come in the new year; but we hope you’ll feel at home here. Come in, we’re open!
