The addition is almost complete and we have started the painting and measuring for flooring, I have already started packing supplies that are not being used right now into totes and stacking for transport.
Items for sale and machines will be the last items to go over because I need to be able to get my hands on them to fill the incoming orders.
Then I have to start the online work of transferring address and contact information over to the new location, we are really looking forward to this, now when a local customer sees something and wants to come to the house to pick it up or take a look at what else I have available they can without the neighbors getting mad about it.
We have already talked to the new neighbors, which we did in the old location as well, the new neighborhood is more open so there will be no parking issues, which turned out to be the issue in the old location so needless to say the neighbors were not very receptive to people parking in their spots to drop off or look at items.
Both Etsy shops will stay open during the transition, everything is being set up so that my phone will go off if there is a customer question or a order that needs to be filled.
We will still be basically a online operation only, but if someone needs to drop something off or pick up anything instead of having it shipped to them they will now have that option available to them.
Now I just have to try and get the hubby to keep his office desk neat and tidy so when people come they don't see his papers flung all over the place :)
