Trials and Tribulations

Well, like most new businesses scrambling to open its doors, we're experiencing our share of pitfalls--fabulous upholstered pieces and swell tables we ordered months ago not arriving for another month or more, vintage pieces we bought after seeing only photographs arriving in need of more than a little TLC, items arriving damaged and having to be returned, vendors still deciding whether to allow us to carry their products...

Like all store-owners (especially aesthetically-obsessed Virgo ones), we so wanted our vision to be 100% fulfilled and perfect in time for our opening soiree March 15, but it is not to be. We're operating off the idea that this is a great opportunity to test our creative mettle and think out of the box. We've got barely over a week to come up with some ideas to fill in the gaps.

Look at it this way: Now you have some excellent reasons to keep coming back to the store. All those new, delayed pieces will be coming in for some time!
