Hi everyone!



Thank you for being so patient with us these long 16 months as we look for our new home.



Tomorrow, Tuesday the 17th of February we will begin our new jounrey in Bellingham!



I spent the weekend with our first Bellingham employee at our new site. You are going to love him!



All of our stuff from the Mill Creek store is already at our new location. We moved things around, organized, removed and sanded shelves and made a good dent in prepping the store for the next steps.



If all works out ok we plan to open April 1.

Happy Spring
