Wow! Unlike last week when I gave a progress report on the build-out at the store where most of the work had been structural and not obvious to the average Joe – this week exterior walls are up and you can see how things will eventually look! We’re all super excited at the thought of both more showroom and warehouse space!

I have over 70 photos to share with you – so will dispense with my normal chit-chat – other than to share a bad sales line I heard yesterday.

I’d stopped to get gas and there were some guys outside selling a non-wash cleaner for your car. One of them approached me and my 2001 Mazda MPV van (which has served me well but seen better days) and I listened to his spiel and then said, “No, thank you.” He responded, “But what about your kids and grandkids?” I just smiled and shook my head but the more I’ve thought about it – was he implying I looked old enough to have GRANDCHILDREN WHO WOULD BE DRIVING AND HAVE CARS THAT NEEDED CLEANING? Sir – I would suggest that is never a good sales line even if I looked old enough to have GREAT-GRANDKIDS who drove. You’re welcome.

Onto photos of SOME of what’s currently in our inventory. Remember, the Furniture Gallery is another option for reviewing furniture in the store!

It’s possible my prickly reaction to an innocent comment about grandkids (and for the record – I am a granny to my daughter’s amazing dog, Riker – and though he’s smart I don’t see him ever getting his driver’s license or driving a car) is due to the fact that today’s my birthday and, according to my husband, I am now in my “late fifties.” At 56 – I think I’m still MID-fifties.

Wouldn’t you agree, dear reader?
