Then and now, my new space at The Pink Cabbage

I made a big business mistake a few years ago. I had been at The Pink Cabbage a couple of years in a nice, big bedroom and was doing well. But I got restless and who knows what else was going on in my crazy head at the time but I though I wanted to get out of the biz for a while so I gave my notice. Look at that darn cute room, above. The other women there were very supportive, they even threw me a going away party. Look at all this room...
...then Jody talked me into staying but my room had already been promised to someone else. The good news was that there was a very small closet available!
Small, right? Okay so I was there for a few months then moved into a larger closet...
...still not as much room as I needed but I in was there for a couple of years.
Backing up a bit. For those of you who don't know what The Pink Cabbage is all about, it's this nice, old house that has been turned into a house of shops. There are 15 women who have spaces here. Some rooms are shared, most are solo. The business is going on over six years and is very successful. With 15 women who have fabulous taste and a shared vision of keeping prices down, we weathered the financial bust without so much as a hiccup. It's a great group and a great place to shop.
Someone is leaving which meant that things started to churn throughout the shop. One thing lead to another and I got to move into a larger area yesterday on the first floor, yeah, lots easier for hauling in furniture and in the main room so more visibility. The first view is above.
A space where people will be able to walk through and more than one person can get in at a time. Yep, that's how tight my last two spaces were.
And I can spread out my art and treasures so they can be seen better.

My sales had already improved today. Yep, I'm happy. For those of you who live locally, I hope you'll stop in soon. For all others, please like my Doojies' page on facebook damnit.
