Antique Mall Space / DIY Projects

Open for Business

Wow, the last 3 weeks FLEW by! As of yesterday, The Cantaloupe Crate is open for business. Woohoo! Life has been a whirlwind of fun and work, and this is only the beginning. It’s really neat to see some fulfillment of what used to seem like a silly dream…having a space in an antique mall to run a creative business…playing out in real time.

I’m too tired to write much else tonight, so here’s a little picture post of what my space looked like on opening day and a few highlights of my favorite things (those things I secretly hope don’t sell! ha!)
