Hi, This is Becky and I have to tell you all that my dream has finally came true. I have been wanting to own a speciality gift shop for the past 15 years and I have finally accomplished that. I love my shop! It is called "The Gifted Cottage". I am renting a little home built in 1933 with the original hardwood floors, (although a little uneven, but very quaint), windows and wooden panel and ceilings. It has 2 bedrooms, kitchen, bath, family room with old fireplace and a sun parlor. I painted each room a different color to match my gift wrap and shopping bags whcih are light pink, aqua, brown, & lime green. I painted my stucco wall flower place a glistening brown finish with a light pink mantal. After finishing the painting, everything else just fell into place beautifully. I offer gourmet food & spa gift baskets, homedecor, jewelry, candies, handbags, handmade bath & body products, baby & bridal gifts, etc. I am so excited about all of this that I cannot wait to go back the next day. My only problem, is more financing and I am worried that I may not find it. I pray every day for that not to happen to me. I will soon be doing a website. I have spent a great deal on advertising. It is paying off. I just opened my shop in May 2007. So far I cannot complain and I love my customers, everyone has just been so nice and helpful and I am so grateful for everyone.This sure has been a dream come true for me.
