We make furniture and signs from reclaimed lumber. And sell home decor we buy wholesale.

Good luck with the store. The store looks "comfortable", which hopefully, will sell more stuff.

Great news.

There is a lot of pride in owning your own business. There is also a lot of work.

My wife and I owned a business for 18 years and sold it in 1998. Bought it a few months before retiring from the AF. Now we miss our many customers. You will probably find that the customers are your biggest joy.

Congrats on the fine store! I was interested in the kid's table and chairs in the sixth picture. That brought to mind a future project. My son's kids are home-schooled. They are looking to buy or build a bigger house. My wife and I thought of making a desk and chair set for each of the kids. Might have to design it to grow with them.

My wife gives sound advice. 99% sound and 1% advice.

That looks like a really nice store - great job! Is your shop at the store or at home?

It's in the store. I have it walled off with windows so you can see in. We'll see how well that works out. Too early to tell yet. [ATTACH]285177[ATTACH] my shop is in there :)
