Well, I finally did it. I signed the lease agreement for my first retail space today. I am nervous, excited, petrified and i must have vomited five times.
We'll be opening in the new Dekalb Marketplace off of the Flatbush Extension in Downtown Brooklyn on July 16th. Yeah! I know, not a lot of time to get it together but sink or swim, by hook or by crook, we will open.
One of the cool things about the store is that they've recycled old shipping containers, insulated them, put in wood floors and glass windows. There will be a Farmers Market that will have fresh produce, some really cool restaurants and boutiques and Pratt is opening an Art Gallery.
I can't believe my dream is really and finally coming true. I have wanted this for so long and now that the time has come i'm "beyond giddy" and if you know me, then you know that's saying a lot.
