My Address as of May 1st will be 103 Main St. This little storefront just dropped in my lap yesterday! The Groton Hotel was just purchased by an innovative young guy from LA (he grew up in Groton)- and this shop is right next to the Hotel. It has a big front window and enough space for fabulous merch, my studio and a large storage room! I think it is perfect for the new location of Thou Art. I am downsizing, but I think I will be gaining some much needed exposure! I can start freshening up the place, and it needs it, with paint and a good cleaning starting in May. The antique shop that is there now will start moving mid April. I am SO EXCITED about my new digs!!!
I am also hoping some of my fabulous friends will be willing to maybe help me one day or so with the move???
What do you think? I'm about ready to jump out of my skin!!!
I want to add this, I LOVE the space I currently occupy, and I will truly miss the atmosphere and the beauty of the windows, but, atmosphere don't pay the bills! I feel Main St. will be a better location for me and the wonderful artisans I represent. I would also like to thank Janet, who is a great friend and "landlord" for giving me the opportunity and the support to start my business where I did. I can only grow from here.
