In 28 sleeps (which is how I have always counted down to anything I'm excited about) Freedom Works Kishorn will be opening it's doors for the very first time.
August is going to fly by, I'm sure, in a flurry of last minuts stock collection/deliveries and placing all the various items on the walls and shelves....moving them around....and moving them around again (I am a bit of a perfectionist and very self-critical.....not the easiest traits to deal with when creating the most perfect of litle shops, which is my goal).
There are also the less exciting things to deal with, such as electricity, phone, internet etc (not quite so glamorous!)
As well as all the above, I want to focus on getting some photos taken of a few items of stock to get them added to the online shop on this website, in order to get that up and running too.
I was really hoping to be able to have a pre-opening "party" for all the locals and the artists/crafters that are going to be selling their lovely items in the shop, but I'm really not sure if I'm going to be able to manage it, with the current restrictions that are in place. I will keep trying to come up with something, so who knows.
I'm currently typing this entry from my home in Elphin, looking out of the sunroom window through the haze of midges that have descended again today and driven my indoors. I will be back over to Kishorn to stay for a few days next week, unpacking boxes and filling shelves....and can't wait.
More news to come in the next couple of weeks, and hopefully some photos of the shop displays, to entice you in.....but for now, keep well, stay safe.......and keep following the daisies!
