The new Greytown Store is OPEN

Very excited to let you know we have completed the move from Martinborough to Greytown and were open for our first days business today :)

The new store is opening in stages, I have set up hope & glory stock in the main space, but the Toolbox stock is still coming, hence the empty shelves on the other side. My kids area is looking very cute and still to come, the gallery, books & records room, plus the tool room/man cave at the back. These will be happening over the coming weeks, I'll keep you updated on progress. But for now here are some pics of how we are looking...
