I want to share a new venture on the horizon…I’m re-opening my little shop, Chez Chloe. It’s focused on kitchen and housewares, specialty foods and I’ll be branching out just a wee bit into body care- can’t go wrong with luxury soap and lotions I say. Here are a couple quick picks of the beginning…
The storefront, located in Eastsound on Orcas Island ( at Christmas)- It’s still the same minus the green trimming. It will be loads of fun opening this garage door to the sidewalk and passersby (how do you pluralize that one!)
And a little gander inside. There is a lack of windows… ok no windows… but due to to the glass front it still receives plenty of light.
It’s the perfect size for me to fix up and work mostly on my own.
And here is trusty shop dog doing his part keeping me company:-)
Me and my navigator rented a van to pick up fixtures in Seattle. I bought a few display pieces and berry bushes. I had a van after all. One dozen bare root blueberries, some raspberries, and yes… a few perennials. Did I mention we rented a van. I was like, should we go to Costco and buy bulk toilet paper and paper towels? Maybe some trash cans? Otis thought a couple very large boxes of milk bones should be added to the list. Chloe loved it too… brings out that kid side of us like man, we could just live in this thing.
Next up is orange muffins and chai glaze… and NYC… where I head to this week to visit my son and do a little R&D. Research and development. Or relax and dine.
One Year Ago: (I keep forgetting to add this):
LAST NOTE: i’ve got a query into the mystery of the floating arrow!
