my friend kristiana snapped this pic yesterday while the vintage car show was going on in town. behind the shiny black car is our new space known locally as the florence building. the florence building was actually a dress shop for 40 years. an article taped inside the vacant shop window was what drew me over one night on my way home. after reading about it i just thought, huh – that’s pretty great a dress shop thrived so long here. then i noticed the for rent sign. i went straight home and told my husband we’re moving the studio and opening a retail space. he looked at it the next day and agreed. that’s a little of what brought us together 12 years ago, we’re both big dreamers.
