t a n g e r i n e

I pick up the keys to the shop today! Yah! 
This week I am moving in. It will be a bit of a challenge. The kids are off school today and tomorrow, so that leaves me only three days to get everything moved in. 
I cleared my schedule of custom work schedule this week so I could concentrate on the move, but next week I have several pieces booked so I would really like to get the majority of moving done in the next few days.
Oh, and it is snowing and my shop is on a hill, this should be interesting. 

The color of the building is tangerine {and I actually like it}. It is a corner shop, I am guessing built in the 30's. It has great potential, right now a bit of a diamond in the rough.

I have no doubt in the next month or two this shop is going to be transformed into a fun shopping space.
I am lucky to be joined by a great group of talented ladies and I am so excited about the opportunity.
Because the shop not only has me, but several other vendors, I thought the we should name the building itself. I didn't want The Modern Cottage on the front door when there are so many other furniture shops within this new store. So we are naming the shop/building Tangerine. Easy to remember, since it is the color of the building.

To clarify, I will still be The Modern Cottage Company. Tangerine is just the name of the physical building in which some amazing shops are housed.

Tangerine is also the design color of the year of 2012, so it is perfect.

Tentatively my open hours are going to be Friday 11am-3pm, and Saturdays 11am-5pm, and I will be available by appointment only, the other days. I will also be moving my studio to the back of the store, so I am going to be painting there M-W 9am-3pm.

All inventory is going to be shot and posted on the Shop Modern Cottage Tab, in the next week.

I am not sure what hours the other vendors will keep, or if they will be by appointment only. I will have a button on the blog as soon as I find out. Also, I am sure there will be a Tangerine FB page soon {I should probably get started on this}.


My first open Friday will either be January 27th or February 3rd. I haven't totally decided yet, I have to see how much work it will be for me to actually move in and get things set up.
{I still have quite a few custom pieces booked in January to finish while moving in to the store}

I will be taking a lot of pictures this week as I move in, so you all can take part in the transformation.
I am super excited!
