Today we thought we would share some of our transformation photos! You will have to pardon our mess throughout some of the pictures since we thought to grab our camera while the project was happening rather than taking true before and after photos. Legacy Strong makes a couple appearances - they occupied the space immediately before us and still have a studio next door for all of your fitness needs! Prior to that the space was Painterly Pottery who now has a big beautiful location directly across the street from us!
(MANY thanks are owed to my family + boyfriend who spent countless hours at the store with me getting it ready to open! The BIGGEST thanks of all goes to me dad for being my 'head contractor' and bringing all of my visions to life! This would not have been possible without them).
Another shout out is owed to Pinterest! We created a mood board for the store and many of these ideas came from compiling all of those images into one place. Another thing that was a big focus was repurposing as much material as we could. This, of course, allowed us to save some money but also gave the entire store a cohesive look and feel and we are very pleased with the outcome!
You will not believe the talent that has helped us fill these shelves and bring the handmade movement to Bay City! We hope you will come see the changes in person and do some handmade shopping with us (if you haven't already)!
