Pictures of the All Moments Remembered Brick and Mortar store

So I opened a brick and mortar store..... Three weeks later I found the place I opened in was way to small. I had lots of customers coming in but the feel and size of the store was not working for them or myself. So we had our grand opening there since we had advertised it on a Sat. Packed it all up on Sunday and went and bought new displays too. Moved in on Monday to the new bright cheery store. Opened for biz in Tuesday and had a small first class on Tue night. Now I just need to figure out how to skip sleep!! LOL!!

I have tons of new product coming so I can fill up the store with yummy goodness. I will also have it all stocked on my online. Yippppeeee!


This is the entry when you walk it. Kinda like a little mud room as you come through the front door of the old house.


My stamp area I am using my MIL's Hutch (she passed away and gave it to me). Plus the table that goes with it is set up at all times in the store. Makes me feel like she is with me! She would be so happy.


Another view....


My demo table or scrap table is someone comes in to scrap. For classes I push displays back and bring out all the folding tables. Works fantastic. I still need to decorate like crazy!! But I think it is pretty good for doing it so quick. Don't you love the pergo floors in there?

Here is my first class. Only had 6 but was booked with 10 so need to work that out so I do not have that happen often. On the far left is Peewee24 and the middle is Marinn from the message board. Total riot these two are.



Two more sweeties working hard! The one in the red and black is a teacher I worked with last year.



This is one of the ladies finished boot albums. They all did a beautiful job and were so much fun to hang out with.

So I finally have all my scrapbook stuff in one place. I can do all my online and kits in the store. No more working at the shop and from home. I can only say this is such a dream come true for me!! I thank all my girls on my Message board most of all for the incredible support they have given me in love and purchases!! This was all made possible thanks to my online customers! THANK YOU!!!!

You're the proof that dreams can come true with lots of hard work and a bit of determination. It looks lovely and I only wish I were close enough to shop with you and take classes there. Or just drop in and crop away all day. The best to you for continued success.
