I really feel for your disappointment in the store opening delay - I know you've put your heart and soul into this... but by this time next year the delayed opening won't mean a thing! I plan to kick it up a notch sending cards and notes to my son who is leaving the friends and community of college life for a new job in a strange city. He'll know he's loved and ALWAYS will have a place to call home.

I need you to send me an email with your email and mailing address. If you have already done so, please do so again. Thank you.

The reason for the delay is because I had bought several fixtures and displays from Linens and Things that is going out of business. Anyway, they called and we needed to go get all our things out of the store this weekend. Here is a couple of photos of some of the stuff we purchased. We have been able to save a lot of money but catching liquidation sales like this.

I purchased 10 of these units along with the fixtures, pegs and shelves to allow for a lot of versatility. They are on rollers making them easy to move around. The maple finish matches the earlier slatwall fixtures I purchased from Goody's when they went out of business.
Below is an sample of the some of the baskets and shelves that came with these.





I purchased 3 of these MASSIVE units. They are 5' x 5'. They take all the same fixture and shelves as the slatwall fixtures. I also purchased 9 sheets of 4'x8' slatwall.

We were taking slatwall of the wall at Linens and Things late last night and got home and unloaded at 2:30 am. I am exhausted but feel it is all worth it since I got such an awesome deal. There is no way I could have went out and purchased all of my displays brand new. I can't wait to get them in the store and get all my product on them.

Hope you all have a great day and a VERY Merry Christmas and prosperous New Year.

Love and Blessing,

Wow what a deal!!! I was thinking of you the other day when one of the LSSs in a neighboring town went belly up and was selling off their fixtures. Of course shipping them to Tennessee would pretty much eat up the savings. LOL I cant wait to see what these look like when you fill them up with product!
