All That Jazz~ old spot at ABUNDANCE VINTAGE
Last month I said goodbye to the space/shop All That Jazz has called home for the last 5 years. The building we were located in is for sale and we were told there was a "sale pending". Therefore, our shop owner made the decision to close her wonderful store in April.
It took about a week for me to find another shop to move Jazz into, but thankfully I found one and it was my first and probably only choice and just up the street from where I was before. I am still sad and disappointed my previous shop, Abundance Vintage closed, it was a wonderful place to have a booth and Susan, the shop owner was marvelous. However the shop owner at my new space is a real sweetheart and I am extremely thankful she made room for me.
I cleared out my bigger furniture pieces in a sale so I could start my new space with fresh pieces. I had about a 3 week grace period to prepare before I moved to my new spot at "The Shady Lady".
Here is my new space when I arrived to set up, "pre Jazz", all prepped with fresh paint, extension cords ready for lamps and a ladder for hanging things! Yes, my new shop owner Holly rocks!
Two and a half hours later, with the help of my Mom and Aunt (previous members of Jazz) we had everything all set up! It was a great relief to get everything settled after 6 weeks of stress and worry about having to move and how things would set up and fit in. I am very glad to finally be settled and after 2 weeks things seem to be going pretty well. I just hope many of my previous customers follow me there. Now I get to get on with the business of picking and painting!
I have been in my new space now for almost 2 months and things seem to be going well. I think I am still waiting for some of my faithful customers to find me and for my new shop customers to adjust to my style! The new shop has a completely different style/vibe than where I was located before and I believe the customer base is a bit different. But I will just keep plugging along and see how things go through summer to get a better idea of which direction my sales will go. Here are a few current photos as of yesterday...
