Extending the deadline
Crowdfunder have allowed me to extend the deadline for a week as we are so close to the stretch target of £15,000. We also had a wee hiccup last week when two of the people helping to refurb were down with the lurgy; one being my other half who has said he thinks I'm trying to kill him with this project. (Better renew the life cover quick). So a few more days to hit the target. It won't impact on the opening date of the shop as we hope that will still be in September.
We had hoped some of the rewards would be available by the start of September but these too will be available from our opening day if not before. We will keep you up to date on progress.
Excitingly , we have had some brilliant additions to the shop this week. A donation of some stunning pieces of local Cyprus wood that we will use to make the shop counter (see below); some kitchen units for the sink area and I also made a trip to the local sale-room and picked up a dishwasher for £20, plus some fun items for the shop, mannequin legs for example !
I also held a Facebook poll on what the preferred scales should be and we ended up with Brexit percentages so have made an executive decision to go with the label printing scales, where you can also write on the weight if you prefer. Best of both worlds.
I can't wait to see our new counter - here is a very rough idea of what's to come although there will be a lower section after the two units, to make the counter as accessible as possible for all.
So it's the last push for the target. We have had a great response so far and really can't thank people enough. Lots of decisions still to come, and lots of fun, to take us to opening day.
Many many thanks
