A sneak peak at my new location off the Woodstock square

 I took a ride to Woodstock today and took a few pictures of my shop to be.  I also was hoping the folks occupying the space were almost out but it's not June 1st yet. They are still working in there.
For those of you reading my blog for the first time and know me from the Starline Gallery in Harvard this may come as a supprise.  I am moving my studio just off the square in Woodstock and am opening up retail hours at the Blossom Shop, (soon to be called Katherine's Beads) in June.  My target date to open is June 15th but this isn't written in stone.  I have lots of painting and redecorating to do before I open my doors.  But I plan to work day and night until its done.  I am bubbling with excitement about my new space.  Once I am in I don't plan on going anywhere for a long, long time...
My shop will be open retail hours Tuesday through Saturday.. I don't have my hours down yet but I will keep you updated.  At this time it is only me running the shop but as time goes on I hope to bring in some part time help and expand my hours opening Monday and possibly Sunday afternoons.
Here are some picture but I plan on brightening this place up a bit.  I see some flower planters in its future and maybe some hanging baskets to bring the place alive.
Blossom Shop soon to be called Katherine's Beads
Planters with some flowers will look nice..
I have yet to find out more about the shop next to me...

We are across the street from the back of Seasons By Peg which is on the square.
We are kiddy corner from the King Smokehouse which is known for having great Ribs...

Hi Friends,
My last blog post I mentioned I was moving my studio to the Woodstock square in June.  With that said I will be in and out of my studio periodically and will be closed for retail hours during the month of May.  I will open to appointment though.  Feel free to call me at 815-276-3399 and we can set a time.  Thanks for your understanding.  I have lots of stuff to move...
