That was an awfully fast/slow/wrinkle in time sort of two months. Just to catch you up since the last post at the end of January, we got ‘er done!!
You may remember this pic from right after the movers left?
Well, that became this!
Then we had a super great party/grand opening/art show! Thanks to Lorenzo Chuca for these great photos! A good time was had by all…
The kitties relocated back to the store without incident, and they are loving the new place. When there’s no one around, there is spectacular multi-level cavorting. Thanks to our great friend Mike Esparza for these great portraits!
And remember this before pic? This is what the Teacher Store looked like at move-in. Now sharing a part of our fabulous new space, the Teacher Store is a project of our sister nonprofit, The Center for Recycled Art.
And it looks like this!
And, we’ve had two shopping days for public school teachers and other nonprofits!
The final big part of our move was just completed this past weekend, when we emptied out our last storage space. So, we are completely under one roof now, except for what’s in our houses. Which, relatively speaking, is not that much. We’re back to working semi-normal hours and are looking forward to getting back into a normal groove. Again, “normal” being relative …!
We have a long, long list of people to thank and a few stories to tell, but that will have to wait for another post.
