|Did you notice we painted the building black? My favorite shade of black, Francesca by MS.|
We also had our counter delivered yesterday, it might be the thing I'm most excited about. Almost two years ago when I decided to open a store I bought this beautiful counter from Mildred's antiques. As a child I fondly remember running around Mildred's antique store. She was always kind and patient explaining the history behind each piece. She would let me touch delicate china and look closely at antique jewellery. No where else was a curious child allowed these luxuries.
Visiting Mildred's shop on a Saturday afternoon was always a special excursion. A memory I will hold dear for years to come. When Mildred decided to close up shop she offered to let me purchase her counter. The counter is special for a number of reasons, not only is it from Mildred's but also because the counter is from the original Birks jewellers store in Edmonton on Jasper Avenue. Birks is the Canadian version of Tiffany's and a much beloved part of our history. I can't help but beam with pride when I see it.
I don't mean to be stingy with the pictures but I'm holding them back for the big reveal.
