Officially open for business!
Welcome to Paper Anthology!
A view of the paper nook – well, part of it at least…
Phew, I’ve had a few days of worry as the store has not had power since the storm, but I’m happy to report that it came back on yesterday evening and everything is back on track. I have received confirmation from Ranger ink that the limited edition Winter distress inks will arrive in time for the grand opening…and I will also have some fall sets available as well! Further deliveries from Memory box, Impression Obsession, Authentique , Pine Cone Press, Lablanche, Penny Black, Inkadinkadoo and Glitz designs will also arrive in time for the grand opening…I’m so excited, and I just can’t hide it!
Step by step we’re getting there. the chairs arrived today, tables are being delivered tomorrow! I remembered to take a couple pictures tonight…
the ribbon rack is starting to fill up…grosgrain, twill, twine, lace, waxed linen thread – oh how I love pretty pretty ribbon!
This is a view into the stamp and class room. There’s another room in the back…the “paper nook” I’m anticipating a HUGE paper shipment tomorrow – can’t wait to get all those empty paper racks filled up!
Painting’s done, slat wall is up throughout the store. Displays are on their way and Verizon is coming on Thursday to set up the phone and internet. (Yes Digi girls, we will have wireless available!) Sign is being designed and should be hanging in the next two weeks. This is a limited view of the front room as you enter the store. Can’t wait to start setting things up!
Here’s a sneak peek into one of the store rooms, as seen from the classroom. The walls are prepped and today we add color – Green, beige and brown…what else?!
