signing the lease!!!
The decision was rough. I struggled with what was right. But deep down, I knew what I really wanted. So today I’m signing the lease on my own little store. This is something I’ve wanted since I was 10 or so. It seems so surreal in a way. I have loved this little shopping center from the first time I went there. I was looking for clothes/hiking stuff as I prepared to walk 60 miles for breast cancer. This little mall had a shop all about walking/running/hiking. It had a vegan restaraunt (this was back when vegan places were odd and rare), a bike shop and a dive shop too. With a dive pool built in the middle of the mall!
I don’t know why we decided to go walk around there 2 weeks ago. The place has changed so much! The pool is gone. That made me sad as its where David took brush-up courses on scuba diving. But oh! You should see the wonderful things that are there now! The walking store has grown into a very cool eco friendly, 2 story monster of a store. The bike shop and the vegan place (Native Foods) are still there. But now its an upscale hang-out including many places to eat, drink wine etc. A yoga studio. Hair salon. Organic bakery and high priced tacos. On a Tuesday night there was no parking and valet parking was in full swing.
This is where I have decided my quirky little shop belongs. Its going to be hard. Starting a business with no capital is a dangerous coin toss. But I have waited my whole live. Its now or never!
this adorable air-stream, parked in the middle of this amazing little shopping center is going to be home to my jewelry and other goodies. I’m beyond excited.
