Tuesday sees the culmination of almost two months of blood, sweat and tears of frustration (I have to say the tears haven't been mine, but there have been a few of our number who have let things get to them)....the opening of the new JALON VALLEY HELP (JVH) Charity Shop, in the neighbouring village of (funnily enough!) Jalon.
You may remember me mentioning in previous posts that we had been refurbishing the shop in our own village...that refurb was part of an attempt to bring both shops more onto an equal footing, as we knew the Jalon shop was moving to these new premises which would (after some serious hard graft) look bright, shiny and new!
Having finished ALCALALI'S 'facelift' a couple of weeks ago, it was straight into the actual physical moving of everything in the OLD Jalon shop which needed to go to the NEW one, and also of course the 'facelift' for the new premises!
And Tuesday evening is the BIG opening!......tomorrow will- hopefully!- see the last of the labels for the shelves and rails being put in place (typed, printed and laminated by myself...people are beginning to think I have OCD when it comes to ensuring everything is perfectly cut to size and MATCHING!).
I am also responsible for the buffet being served at the Grand Opening.......my shopping list today included; Cava, Juice, Water,Olives and these fabby little bread snacks I've recently discovered:
Hopefully, by 4.45pm(ish) tomorrow evening, I will have the trestle tables looking festive and all the lovely ladies I've
Wednesday morning will see me at the hairdresser's...a much-needed appointment I have to say, and the end of the week sees me re-organising the books in our (JVH's) new storage facility!
How is your week shaping up?
Thanks for dropping by!
Take care of you
