So.... That was that...

We had an "unofficially open" day yesterday and LOTS of people came out. THANKS EVERYONE FOR THE CONTINUED SUPPORT!!

Today we pack up the remaining inventory and start moving out of our suite. We will need extra bodies on Friday if you have nothing better to do! (LOL).

We will go online. The site is up, but is not full of product yet. We need to set up our warehouse and then catalog and load items to the website. We hope to be up and running at least a little by the end of June. If there is something you need before then, email me. If I have it, we can arrange to get it to you.

We still have some fixtures available if you are interested.
