The Cat's Outta the Bag

A couple weeks ago, I mentioned that we had some exciting news coming up. 
The ink is dry and it's official so I can now share it with you.
We are expanding the Shoppe by 3000 square feet! 
We're not moving, just expanding in our current location.
Isn't that exciting?!

As is historic for Canton after the bigger Spring or Fall shows, there is a lot of planned movement going on with tenants. 
This has opened up a big opportunity for us and we're jumping all over it!

The new expanded space will total over 8,000 square feet!!
This will give us the space we need to really expand our clothing, jewelry, and fashion accessories.
And well-needed space for lots more antiques, vintage goodies, and the room to add some cool new surprises!
Lots of work and long hours lay ahead in prepping the expanded space and we will have some transitional months as we get through all the construction hiccups. 
But, I will say the same thing to you, our customers, that I've been saying to the crew,
"it's only for a few months and it will be sooooo worth it!"
We will begin the expansion AFTER the upcoming show.  The exciting and much larger Shoppe will be completed by Fall, so get ready because we sure are!

Okay you catch the cat and put it back in the bag, I've got a Shoppe to get ready for your visit. :-))

The fun begins on Thursday morning at 9am!

Thursday 9am - 5pm

Your shop is a wonderland ! Was fortunate to visit with the Beauties In Blue several weeks ago. The hospitality, charm and friendliness of all is truly Texan sized.
Almost got lost there as it is and now it is going to be even bigger, and even more fabulous...sigh.
Am so looking forward to a return visit next year.

I'm in Pa. but I sure wish I could visit your beautiful shop! I love those beautiful long scarves in one of the pictures, but I couldn't find a clothing link. I guess you don't sell those online?

Parisienne Farmgirl said...

Oh-MY-Goodness.

My reasons list for visiting Texas just got 3,000 square feet bigger!!!!

I think I screamed when I saw that photo of all the scarves and the white dresses or nighties all lined up on hangers.

We need to talk!! :)

Pictues O My so lovely,like what I saw when I visited....many great inspirations. I have a allergy to sewing machines...those pocket pillows(which I have been wanting to make) are such a inspiration. Your news is proof-small buisness can and is a success if you are willing to put in the work,creativivity and mostly faith...in yourself and those who are your support ...congrats! If ever looking for some cool stuff ...shop Belton and on 1rst and third Monday every month. Vendor Mondays open 12-5 so vendors have a spot to shop(so many closed on Monday)Moore and Garrett Antique Mall
