From start to finish

It's been a whirlwind couple of months but from sometime mid January to March 1st we have gone from an empty unit and a fully functioning business inside a bookshop to Beautiful Things HQ.  Here's the last 6 weeks in pictures.

We get keys!
The floor gets taped out for furniture placement

The IKEA delivery arrives
It snows but friends still come to my aid and help me move out of Chicken and Frog

Yeah for Louise (Running Rabbit Crafts) and her lovely Boyfriend (with a van)
Everything moves in

We are officially opened by a good family friend Trish.  (She used to be the queens milliner, that's pretty famous of you ask me)!

Enjoying tea, cake and crafty chat on opening day


  1. Good work Mrs Mack. The future is full of winds just waiting for you. Can wait to finally visit you on Wednesday! Xx

  2. Great record in pictures. Well worth the hard work, lovely atmosphere for people to craft in

  3. The place looks great. I wish I were local so I could visit! Next time I'm up visiting my friends in that area I will have to pop in.
