The Renovations We Completed in April 2009

Many of our customers ask us about our store.  What is was before pinkginger occupied its space and how we renovated and who did the renovations and who chose the colors etc.  We encourage lots of chatter in our store and we love when our customers ask us about pinkginger!  So I thought I would post some before and after pics of the store.

Pic 1 – This is what the store looked like before…

Prior to pinkginger, this space was occupied by merchants who sold jam and honey, jewelry, real estate office and when we took down the half wall, it revealed plumbing that was used as a former laundromat.  This 220sq ft space definately has an interesting and diverse history.  Part of its charm, I’m sure.

Pic 2 – The shelves start going up…

I loved seeing the shelves go up.  It was really at this point that I realized I was opening up a store with Christine.  It was pre-opening jitters from that moment on.

Pic 3 – Our little bench seat that gets so much use!

Underneath this bench seat is a bunch of rock/stone so my Dad recommended a bench seat instead of drilling through the rock for extra store space.

The shelves get a coat of paint…getting there…

Getting even closer to the finished product…

Our beloved bench seat is completed!This bench seat gets more use than we ever thought possible.  A little secret…lots of Auto and Truck traders magazines are hidden beneath the pillows.  Thanks to one of our client’s husband for the suggestion!

The floors are in, products on the shelve…all we need now are customers!

Voila! The big reveal! Floors in, shelves up, reception desk complete, products on shelve!

We love our store! Hope you do too!

We hope to see you at pinkginger soon.
