After the past few months of such long days and hard work getting my new showroom up and running, I must confess that it feels VERY good to see this:
The article, by LA Times journalist Jessica Ritz, chronicles the wide variety of unique goods to be found in and around our little pocket of East Hollywood at Melrose and Heliotrope (known by locals as Hel-Mel.) It really is a great little spot we've landed, with the divinely delicious Scoops gelato shop just across the way, and locavore foodie haven Sqirl right around the corner.
It's been a work in progress, but I'm so happy to report that the store has evolved over the past month into a place where people walk in and their eyes light up. It's a place I would want to shop, which is a pretty good bar to set!
Thanks for letting me share my happy news with you :) Now to plan and get ready for that grand opening party ... I'm thinking late July, in the peak of the summer fun. Keep you posted!
