Mark, do you guys have a private showroom? Staffing a brick and mortar open to the public seems like it could be a distraction.

No showroom. But we are going to have a seating area and a kitchen. We're not planning on even putting a sign on the facade.

We went over to the new office and checked in with the contractor before we left town last week. Lots of progress. The place was cleaned out, carpet was pulled up, walls were knocked out and now they've put up the new walls and started putting the drywall up. With a little luck they'll be done by the end of the month which would give us a full month to move over there and allow us time to do it in an organized way. Several of our blacksmiths have sent us stuff to hang on the wall. The best part is Sue is going to have a private office. She has been working in the hallway on her feet all these years and she'll finally have a place where she can sit down and make phone calls without being interrupted all the time. Alton also is the big winner. He'll have a shop space that is double what he has now and we'll be able to add a few tools and double the bench space to make his work easier.

Wow! That's so exciting. Congrats, you guys.
I'll have to come check out the tool collage next time I come back to visit Madison.
Only downside is now I won't be able to get my teeth cleaned and pick up a new knife at the same time! ;-)

I'm in Madison on Saturday. Need any help lightening your inventory? Stones seem like they'd be heavy to move...

We'll be walking through the new office tomorrow to check progress. Electrical is done and sheetrock is being delivered tomorrow and put up on Friday. I'll take some pictures to give you guys and idea of what it looks like. It's a freaking cavern compared to our current place!

When will you be changing your shipping address and will you be forwarding your current shipping address to your new address?

Just when I had it memorized lol ...

Standing at the back door. This first space will be Alton's new jail cell/shop/store room.

This is the main inventory warehouse and at least 2 shipping stations will be located at the end of the space on the left and right. To the left we'll have all the shelving and inventory.

The framed in area to the right is going to be the kitchen.

Coming along quite nicely - that's going to be a very nice operational store/shop.

We're going to try and do the actual move of inventory in 6 hours on Friday August 25th. We have the moving company all set and they're bringing two 24ft trucks and 4 guys. Should be interesting.
