This post is subtitled "How to Set Up a Shop in 3 Days". It's possible when you have enough help. With our official Studio and Shop Opening on Saturday, it's full-steam ahead.
Yesterday was Day 1. Dan cleared unslightly cobwebs from above the windows.
Mopped the floor.
Painted the floor. Yay for man power!
Behind the scenes, I was painting an old wooden table and training our new junior assistant Lara (you will meet her later) who was heat-setting fabrics and tagging tea-towels.
Last night, it was off to IKEA to buy shelving which made for a very long day but at least we got a nice meal at the cafe (yes, I like IKEA food). Today, we will get the shelving ready and make sure that we have LOTS of goodies for the opening that you will love for Mother's Day gifts.
Let me know if you plan to come. We would love to meet you and have your support. Fabric printing demonstrations are scheduled for 11.00 am and 1.00 pm.
PLUS all visitors will receive a raffle ticket and one lucky person will win a $100 Thea & Sami gift voucher that can be used to purchase fabric, homewares or go towards a screen-printing workshop.
Last week, we had a very special guest to our studio. To see who it was and to view more pictures of us screen-printing, click here. Thanks Jennie!
