Hello. Happy Spring.

I was talking to a woman a couple of days ago, telling of what we have going on with the shop, etc. She remarked something along the lines of, "you mean the shop that was going to be open in November?" - I said, "Uh, yeah, that one..." It was actually motivating to get a jab from someone I know not. She's right.

So, the now proverbial three week mark has been set. I am calling some numbers on Monday, that should put things in to motion. Some features will be installed this week to make the retail space feel more retail-y, and our lovely bar top-in-progress is, well, in progress. The artist who is crafting it believes our timing can connect.

On the home-delivery front, we will be sending out a Fair Trade Organic Papua New Guinea. It's got some passion fruitish tones, followed by a mild Indonesian must. I am a fan. So, if you are into that sort of thing, and you live, let's say, between the River Market and Brookside, I will be happy to rest upon your doorstep a hand-crafted bag of coffee. Click hither.

This week, we will be installing a couple panels from the always fine, Brandon Briscoe. He agreed to create a piece or two bring some life to a dark place in the shop. I am imagining it will tie the room together similar to the Dude's rug. Let's hope the fate of the painting is not parallel.
