All That Jazz~The Big Move

We DID it!

We got All That Jazz moved to her new home downstairs and we're
thrilled with the results! I keep going back to check my pictures just to
look at the results. Am I vain or what?!

It took my Aunt 2 1/2 hours Friday night to pack up everything, move it
downstairs and pull things back out of boxes so we could haul the empty
boxes home out of the way. We did have a helper, the shop owner's
little Granddaughter was a tremendous help packing down light, tedious,
bulky things that would have meant endless trips for us. She was a big
help so I gave her a financial bonus! Why is it that 5 year olds have more
energy than us when they're smaller and have to exert more energy
to get around with their tiny little legs?

We showed up bright and early at 9:00 to start pulling it all together. We

were on a time crunch. We had to be out of there by 4:00 because the
downtown business were hosting their "Girl's Night Out" event. I
it would only take us about 3 hours. Boy was I WRONG.
Six hours
later we finally finished. I guess I underestimated how much

This old bookcase belongs to the owners of our shop. They were kind
enough to let us borrow 3 large furniture pieces to display our things
on since we don't have any large pieces of our own yet. The bookcase
came from a local school library years ago.

This is the second piece we were lucky enough to use, it's my favorite!
It's gorgeous and dates back to the mid-1800's.

The third piece from the owners. This is the only one not for sale because
it was the first antique piece she bought and she has a deep emotional
attachment to it. It's cute!

Cookies for the "Girl's Night Out" participants.

All That Jazz Ladies, minus my Nana
L-R my Auntie, my Cousin, me and my Mom

So it's finally done. Hopefully we won't have to move again next month.
We've got just about the best spot in the shop so I think we'll be staying
put for the near future.

Your pics turned out great! I didn't get many of the "entire" space.
I don't think we should move, our space is cool, esp. with the little kitchen cubby!
Can't wait to see what else we do and put in this space as time goes by! :) xo

This is so great, Sareski!!!! All that hard work, dedication, perseverance.... oh I wish I could just give you a big hug!!!!!

Congratulations, Sareski!

And that zebra carpet in the middle is PERFECT. It pulls everything together, creating a very flamboyant centerpiece and focal point, without taking too much attention away from your merchandise. :)

Hi Sares: Your shop looks so cute. I wish I could visit. Thank you so much for the card. I had been crying most of yesterday and the card came and just put a big smile on my face. That was straight from God. God used you yesterday Sares, thank you for being obedient. You will never know how good that made me feel. Lots of love dear friend. Martha

Sares, you ladies look lovely ... AND ... have done a wonderful job creating a very beautiful shoppe. I love the punch of blue ... it sets things off so nicely.

I know this is a good move you made, foot traffic is vital ... many successes & lots of moola for you all.

Have a great weekend.
