Before & After

PROGRESS UPDATE: Here's a sneek peak at what the inside of the store looked like before we start the demo and construction to transform it into an inviting paper craft store.

The prior owners were Regal Travel - that explains the big map in the middle of the wall. At first, I thought it would be cool to keep the map for our "travel" area - but it takes up way too much space. Okay, now brace yourself for what the space looks like now after we moved some of our "stuff" out of storage...

What a mess!!! And it was such hard work...there's a weight and height limit going up the ramp to the store - so we had to make multiple small runs up and down the ramp with our two small trucks. It was a very looong day....one more weekend like this and I think we'll have all our "stuff" out of storage!

It was all worth it though...it finally feels like "our store" now with all this junk in it.


We've Found Our New Home!

Happy New Year! It's been a long time since there was any news for us to update regarding finding a new spot for the store. There were a few potentials, but nothing panned out. Victor and I didn't think it would take so long...but after some patience, we're happy to announce that we have a new home...

With keys in hand, we'll be opening soon at Kahala Mall. There's plenty of free parking, it will be easy to find, and there's a great family and community atmosphere. We'll be located on the rooftop right by the elevator that goes down to the theaters. We're planning the layout and will soon start construction. It will take us a few months to get ready...so I'll be posting our progress on this blog.

What a great way to start off the new year! Can't wait to see all of you soon.
