Phase one completed, 75 phases to go...
The missus said earlier in the spring: "you should turn the entryway of the studio into a nice little shop for people to see as they enter and leave the studio".
Said entryway, where the world enters my lair, was a 8 foot by 8 foot dumping ground, and the studio simply had stacks of pots and junk in many stages.
But she is right: customers should have a focal point, where they can see a display of the best items. I could tell that customers would be looking around, confused, not sure what's for sale and what is mess. Because this is new--I have people coming over all the time. I worked by myself for 10 years in New Hampshire, and nobody ever visited, now people come every week.
So, you have to start somewhere, then move things into place after that, and the NEW SHOWROOM is open! The rest of the place looks like cr@p though....
