Premises!

The Tree House has premises!  I can’t quite believe it.  The lease has not been signed yet, but it should all be pretty straightforward and quick – the shop I have is ultimately destined for redevelopment, so it is a short term lease, and the owners can give me a month’s notice at any time.  But it means the lease is much cheaper than standard commercial leases, and I don’t have to commit to a two-year contract – I can also just give a month’s notice if it all goes wrong.

Which it isn’t going to do, of course…!

It’s so exciting.  It’s a great space, a great location, and a brilliant way to get the Tree House started and established and see if it’s a viable business, without too much risk.  I can’t wait to get in there and set it all up!  It should all happen fairly quickly – I’ll give more details in due course!

It does mean we will no longer be at Kenilworth market.  I was due to be there this Thursday, but as I am not very well this week – and I think still getting worse – I have decided to cancel this week’s stall as well.

It still hasn’t sunk in  – feeling unwell probably doesn’t help, but I really can’t believe it’s all going to start happening very soon!  It’s five months since I started this blog, about eight months since a friend and I first discussed the idea, and a lot has happened in those months – I’ve managed to keep the momentum going, though it hasn’t always been easy!  But then I didn’t expect anything different.

So once I have signed the lease and picked up the keys I will post a few photos.  I have some friends who are going to help get it shipshape.  The main thing I need to get is lots of shelving and/or bookcases!  So when I’m feeling better I’ll get on with that.

In the meantime, back to the buttercup syrup and an early night…feeling rough, but soooo happy!

    Thanks Sarah! Rent now agreed, tenancy agreement being drafted, shouldn’t be too long before I have the keys, and will then be very grateful for your books! Wonderful.
