As I write this, there are precisely 5 days, 19 hours and 38 minutes until the new shop opens.
Above, i'm sitting on the floor of the empty shop, wondering where on earth to start!
It's been a frantic week, ordering stock, cleaning carpet, sanding doorways, dyeing yarn, organising all the annoying things that are crucial to a shop being able to operate. You know, eftpos, power, internet, phone...
I have managed to sit, knit and breathe though. I'm so excited for this new space, and for it means for knitters (and crocheters and spinners and weavers). The first new yarn line that we'll be carrying is The Fibre Company's Road to China Light
, and i'm very hopeful it will arrive before Friday so that it can be on the shelves in time for Tuesday's opening.
You probably want the details, right?
Holland Road Yarn Co (the second)
Upstairs, Grand Arcade, 16 Willis St
Open 10am, Tuesday 21 January
There's a good chance we won't have eftpos up and running, because our phone won't be connected (sigh). BUT we will be able to take credit & debit card payments via our online system and there is an ATM downstairs. So we will manage until it is sorted for us on Wednesday.
I better get back to the mega list. And getting excited. 5 days!!
