Our New Store!

It is finally time for me to announce that we have a new store! We still have our old store, which has frontage on Broadway (the main shopping street), but we also have a 2nd location just around the corner. They are physically connected only by their storage rooms in back.  The "back" store (the new store that is not on Broadway) is 1/3 of the rent...and is in a similar location as our original store in 2005.  Jared didn't want us to have it too easy this Spring/Summer...so we settled on this new project.  We will also have our first employee ever for this coming season.

But with the new store comes a lot of remodeling/painting to do.  The previous renters that have been in our "back" store  have never had color or zest in their stores.  So, we have brought some of our Mexican inspiration with us. Here are some before-and-after shots as we've been repainting in the last few days:






Now which store would YOU prefer to shop in?  White and drab?  Or shockingly colorful?

Maiya and Ella have stayed fairly entertained.  Ella helps keep Maiya busy (wow!  She's being obedient AND helpful...let's hope this keeps up!!), and when Maiya is napping, Ella rides her bike in circles around our store.  Thank goodness for that bike!

I LOVE THE COLORS! That is awesome! And correct me if I'm wrong, but your additional store looks about three times bigger than your original store in the back.

I think you guys are addicted to bright colors. Admit it...you really wanted the bright orange trailer, didn't you?

We just went to Cozumel and I have to say, I think I can see why you love Mexico. We had AMAZING food there and everything is so vibrant. Maybe next winter we'll meet you in Puerto Vallerta or something!
