Welcome to my shop!

Thursday, December 2, 2010

We've traveled a tough road to get here but renovations are finally winding down and tomorrow at 10:00 a.m. we are opening our doors!  No small feat, we are in an old building that required some updating and renovating to make it useful once again and as with any renovation, it took longer and certainly cost more than expected.  The good news is we are open in time for the Mainx24 celebration which will be happening right outside the front door!  This is truly a unique event that is held in Chattanooga's revitalized Southside.  24 hours of parades, special events and merriment!  If you're nearby, it's an event that should not be missed.


Now on to the shop. Here are a few photos I snapped earlier today.  I'm so excited and would love to hear your feedback and any suggestions.  Thanks for coming along on the ride with me!  Oh, and locals - please stop in and see us in the newly renovated Merchants on Main building, located at 607 E. Main St. in downtown Chattanooga!
