A SHOP UPDATE

In less than two weeks, I'll be opening the doors to Knit2 Yarns.  Can't believe it's really going to happen.

Yesterday we were working on the barn doors.  Hubby was building and I was painting


Now it all needs to come down so I can paint the header and finish the back. I love the white against the dark grey wall.


I couldn't resist finding out how the bright yarns would look against the grey too, so I took a few skeins to hang up and see


I may or may not have bought a vintage pink scooter for a window display ...........


Hexie shelves?  Yes please.  This little corner and all it's potential


......and needles.  From tiny sock needles to giant ones, we will have them : )  For those of you who don't know, my hubby's name is Bliss. When he made the first set of these needles for me, I knew I wanted a name for them and 'Bliss' needles just had a ring to it.  I knew that somewhere in my sewing room I had a stamp from way back in the day so I hunted it down  : )

We are having so much fun with this shop!

Enjoy your day,
Carla

Everything is Gorgeous! I'm thinking I need to make a trip up north and see this amazing space. Gorgeous!

I love your knitting needles! Will you sell online as well?

Carla said...

*******Laura, I can't reply to your comment. Please send me an e-mail instead. Yes, we hope to sell on-line in future, but not right away. I think getting open is enough for now : )

You've got a li'l slice of heaven right there, Carla!! Your shop is dazzle-icious.....but I would expect nothing else emanating from your clever imagination! Yay for hexie shelves....just perfect. Love those stable doors and the yarns against that grey backdrop...bellissimo! What a cool name your husband has....and isn't he a clever one with a saw, hammer and nails. I know I have said it before, but your little yarn shop is going to be the best little yarn shop in all Canada......and the world! =)

So great to read about your new adventure. Your shop is going to be beautiful, I'm hoping for lots more in progress and final result photos :) And that scooter is lovely.
I just wish I didn't live half a world away...

I love it! The barn doors, the paint color, the scooter, the needles, all of it. It's really going to be a nice shop Carla :)

I'm drooling over every little piece of this! Seriously! That grey and those barn doors are my dream office combo. I'm in love. I'm also in love with those bright bits of yarn! Awesome.

(And the needles?! Incredible!)

This is going to be a fantastic shop. You are a pro at choosing all the right touches.

The grey walls with white highlights was a great idea. And the colourful yarns look great against it.

I like the bliss stamp you used - very nice custom needles.

oooh, so exciting!!! it's going to be amazing, and don't feel badly about investing in the cool decorations that will help make your store a visual feast- it will encourage customers to linger, and the longer they linger, they more they will buy!
