with me for just a minute.
I am going through some pictures and you know how it is.
You look at a picture from 20 to 25 years ago and you think, "who are those kids?"
Us, those kids were us.
A couple of kids wandering the path to adults.
Mark and I had been in business for about 3 years when we decided we needed to put a sales shop out of the house and in the yard where the public was a bit more comfortable to go. As it is you have to be up for adventure to come and find us. Our driveway alone has caused some folks some stress of worry as they drive the quarter of a mile drive around the pond. If it is a first trip for them they worry about where they are going. The ability to see a real shop out in view at the end of the drive helps.
All ready to go utility buildings were just starting to show up around the area and this one fit our needs, so we ordered it,12X24 to be delivered as a basic shell.
We would then spend the evenings putting in insulation, electricity, lights counters and such.
The sales shop has fit our needs most of the time we have been in business. It holds many pots, is set between the house and the workshop and it put us close by with an easy walk back and forth from one building to another..
I threw pots inside, behind the counter, for 11 years before we build the workshop that was big enough for both of us.
Then when we had the fire and the workshop burned down (and was rebuilt) we still had the shop for sales since it is located across the yard from where we work.
It was nice not to lose the finished work during the whole mess.
Here we are not long after the building arrived.
A couple of kids.
Mark is "cooking" beer today and I have things to do.
Enjoy your Sunday.
