Setup day!

Today was my birthday and it was also the only day we could move into our new space at the Marketplace Shops here in Canon city.  So I started celebrating on Wednesday and did something a little fun every day this week!  We had 4 hours to set up and started out with bare "walls".

3 sets of white cases and a huge showcase, 2 tables and I think we have a good start.  All of the dressforms will be used to display jewelry.  We're going to have dolls, (doll repair), vintage doilies, lace, jewelry, stained glass, hand painted silk scarves, cards, oh - just a ton of things!

We'll be offering vintage fabric repair as well.   Tuesday, we'll be down there to add a ton more stuff and probably some white sheer fabric over the "walls".

and this is the showcase that we brought back from Arizona.  6' x 3' x 3'.  Very old, original glass, very fragile, but it truly shows off everything!

Vintage linens on all the shelves which we will fill up this week.  As of right now, there are 273 times in this space and it barely looks like there's much at all.  But to set out that many items in 4 hours, plus get all the cases in there, I think we did a great job!

So with my 62nd birthday, I'm starting on a new journey with my sisters.  We're calling it Moore Girls - more stuff, and I think the name is just perfect!  It's been a perfect day, and now, the adventure begins!!!

Located at 731 Main street in Canon City, Colorado.  If you're ever in town, come see us!  Open Tues - Sat, 10 - 6.  Be sure to friend the store on facebook here!
