transforming the store

This week has been crazy but we're making progress. We're almost totally moved in to the new store! We made a last minute decision to do a quick refinish on the maple hardwood floors, and luckily lots of people are eager to do great work, fast. So, we hustled through moving the heavy carts and furniture on Thursday, between getting quotes from floor guys, and managed to have the floor completed today! Here's the outcome; glad we decided to spruce up the retail and class area...
 Next week the lovely purple crushed velvet wall comes down, bamboo goes up and we start the plumbing work and install counters in the production kitchen. We're shipping orders as usual, but custom and back bar orders are on hold until next Friday 7/9. Fingers x-ed it all continues to go as smoothly and quickly as this week! We'll be opening sometime in August... stay tuned!

We're located in downtown Santa Barbara on the corner of Carrillo & De La Vina at:
201 West Carrillo Street
