It’s been a while, ideally I would have posted much earlier if I could have found one spare minute in the last few weeks!
My shop opens tomorrow, very much a soft opening, with a proper launch the following Saturday. By then I will have deciphered the 110 page manual for the cash register, or at least worked out how to open the drawer! There is still stuff to do this evening, but I am breaking for an Indian take away and then back to it, till it looks right.
I do feel a little bit like a fraud, I am a designer with big creative urges, not a shop keeper, how did this happen? Whilst I may feel some trepidation though, I know this is absolutely the right next step for me. And anyway, it’s not exclusively a shop, it’s also my studio and a space for me to run my workshops. I’m going to have a big push on getting people stencilling.
If you are ever in Pinner I’d love you to pop in….It’s upstairs at Little Willows on the High St.
Here are some work in progress photos.
