We Officially/UNofficially opened today!

It was a "soft" opening. We put out the "open" flag and lit up the neon "open" sign, and changed the "coming soon" signs to say "now open!"

We had visitors. Salesmen and friends. Our adjustors and a few customers who had had work in the fire. We documented our first "official" customer, who had work in the fire and we confirmed her order and will go ahead with it, as her piece only suffered a minor blotch of water damage.
We LOVE the new space! It's too small for our full, proper operation, but we could take over the space next door and we'd be at full capacity and more. But things are in flux. We have verbally agreed to return to the old space, but we need to re-iterate what the landlords there want to do, and what their insurance company wants to do! A BIG "if!" AND we don't know what the new landlords at our new space have in mind, or how much they want for rent after our 12 month "temporary space" lease is up.
