The Final Sprint

Lots going on (but still lots to do) if construction is going to be complete this week!  But, construction companies seem to pull rabbits out of hats all the time so I won't be surprised by anything!

I have two days worth of pictures to share with you!

Ceiling Tiles complete and freshly painted

Those jagged edges on the door window show where they started to remove the film.

First coat of Primitive Plum on the wall!

Monday was an extraordinarily busy day - I started making phone calls and follow up emails on so many items that had been waiting for construction completion.  So far, things seem to be falling into place pretty well.  There are a few things that I may not be able to confirm until a couple days before they happen but I'm trying to relax and go with the flow.  

Based on the plan for the flooring to be in on Friday, we are planning to go with friend Janice (and the truck she and her husband own) to pick up the cash wrap desk in Leesburg on Saturday.  As of right now, it looks like the fixtures and display items will be delivered next Wednesday.  I'm working with my Point of Sale implementer on scheduling our second session next week.  I'm working on sign installation the week of March 28th.  It is all starting to gel!

After my visit to Zoe's home this afternoon, I met with the Membership Director of the Alexandria Convention and Visitor's Association.  She gave me a tour of the section of their website that will include Zoe's "page".  It is a very functional website with lots of easy to use features that allow the business owner to really create the kind of presence he/she wants to have for visitors (or even locals looking for lots of information on Alexandria).  

I also got another Tracy Reese shipment yesterday!  And am expecting a Velvet shipment this week as well.  There will be no shortage of clothing availability for Zoe's customers!


  1. I love the color! Getting closer and closer - how exciting!

  2. Thank you, Juice and Debbie! When I first walked in and saw the color yesterday, I was so delighted. It was really starting to look real!
