Finally, the exciting news!

It occurred to me that I should probably follow up my "exciting news coming soon" post with the actual exciting news. So here ya go: Mama is moving into our very own store at the end of this month! And this time, it actually is our very own. My name is on the lease, and I'll be paying all the bills. Gulp. To say that I'm terribly excited is the understatement of the year. And as it gets closer, a little anxiety is creeping in here and there. I suppose that is to be expected.

The new digs are in Decatur on East College Ave.

I'll post pictures soon of the interior before and after once I finish with the after. The shop needed a little work, so right now I am up to my elbows in paint. We move in August 1st and I need a couple weeks to get set up. Our grand opening will be Saturday, August 22nd, so I have a lot to do! The weekend after the opening marks the beginning of fall festival season, so I'm mentally trying to gear up and get my head in the game.

I'll write more soon about how this came about, but right now I need to go paint!

Thanks to Leah from the Daily Piglet

A very belated and heartfelt thanks to Leah at the Daily Piglet for her kind words about Mama.

At some point I will blog again. This is the first week where I have been able to sit down and take full breaths in and out, so I'm trying to (start to) get caught up. Which probably won't happen anytime this year, but at some point soon I will fill you in on all of the exciting new things that are going on behind the scenes. Just to keep you guessing: one of them involves a change in venue.

Exciting details coming soon!
