The Paper Collage Paper Arts Store...

The Paper Collage store opened six months ago...where does the time go?
It originally started as a place to process online orders...
Having a post office across the street is a BONUS!
Here it is the day I got the keys back in December.
All mine! 

I had to run out to buy a few essentials like paper towel,
hand soap, cleaning supplies, etc...
It sort of reminded me 
of when I got my very first apartment...LOL!

Now that I look back, it looks so small when I 
started getting it all set up...

I have fabric clipped to wire racks to hide the
storage stuff...{I call it "the wall of fabric"}
It's made it through several moves over the
past several months as more merchandise has been added...

Another view...

Rolled paper...

This vintage desk makes a fabulous store display!

Open for business in April...
Shoppers came to visit! 

More shoppers!

Fast forward to September...Halloween display.

The Paper Collage last week {Sept. 2013}

I brought in some furniture displays, so it
was time to do a major move all around the store...
It took two days to re-merchandise and put it
back together again...

Here it is:
It's always fun to put a hat on an old photo {carefully!}

Halloween tags...

I love my new chippy paint round table!!!
I wasn't sure if it was going to fit through the door!
We rolled it into the store...LOL!
Here is a partial glimpse of the rearranging...I like it much better!

Here is a close-up of the Halloween display.
I can't wait for shoppers to see it! 
I hope they LOVE it!!!
