It's taken me a little while to write this post, as I've been so overwhelmed with love, support and lots to do. Thank you all so much for such a warm welcome to the downtown of Penticton for our storefront.
It's been about 3 weeks of being open now and we've already met so many wonderful people, and talked vintage and style. Things still often feel surreal that we've built this, but then I remember the work of the last 6 years, and know that I'm right where I'm supposed to be.
The most common thing being said to us is that its a crazy time to be starting a business, and that is definitely correct. We had things lined up to get the space a couple of weeks before lockdown/quarantine due to covid-19 really came to action, so we were unsure of how to move forward. And in hindsight, I came to realize the time we took to get things set up and built was a hidden blessing. We were initially planning to open in mid April, so that would have been about 3 weeks of pushing to get things ready, so instead, we had about 7 weeks. I was able to get very comfortable in the space, and get everything just so. Visual display and merchandising are my professional background, so putting together a store with my own vision was just so fun!
I can't wait to share more of this journey with you all. We couldn't be doing what we are without you. And we are forever grateful.
