Shelves! To put yarn on!

I know such excellent people. My friend Christian made and hung shelves in the store this weekend! I had no real idea how expensive wood was -- we spent a huge amount of money at Home Depot, even though we were specifically buying the very least expensive pine. I can't wait to post pictures -- the final effect is both very modern and very rock-and-roll -- no foofy oak or cherry for me! Just cheap pine and elbow grease and tons of sanding.

So all the major capital expenditures have been made, and the leaseholder improvements have been made, and the sawdust and masonry dust and bits of debris have been cleaned up -- it's time for some yarn. I'll be checking over my list in the next couple of days and ordering up some wool and cotton and silk to warm all those lovely board feet.

I'm going to be in Manhattan in a couple of weeks, so hopefully the store will be open then -- and I hope you're selling T-shirts!

I, too, will be around in a couple of weeks. I'm crossing my fingers that you'll be open!
