The cash/wrap and jewellery counter. Later on I brought a huge reproduction of Vincent Van Gogh's Starry Night which fits quite nicely in the raised space behind the register. But for opening day, we were happy just to have fixtures with things in them. Many thanks to Sarah of J. Darling for the gift of the grey showcase. It needs a little repair, but we are grateful to have it.

The gemstone pendants continue to be steady sellers. We move one, maybe two a day, most days. I've had some trouble finding more of those beads, though, so I don't know how much longer we'll carry them. They are SO popular, though, that I almost feel I *have* to do it, and that makes me want to not do it. Doesn't make sense, right?

This green cabinety thing is SO m** f**ing heavy. I moved it in there all by myself. I swear it weighs like 300 lbs, but it's so useful as a working altar. It's where we dress candles and make mojo bags when requested.

These bookshelves were a blessing given to me by Jacki Smith of Coventry Candles. They currently hold the small selection of books that we have, as well as our small apothecary. I hope to grow the apothecary and completely discontinue all the books. Why? Coz Amazon, that's why.

The Torture Chamber got a nifty sign just a few weeks later, while a bookcase was placed in front of the supply closet thing (where the electrical panel is).

I got this shelf out of the trash from CVS many years ago. We had it at the old shop, and in the interim kept our printer and computer stuff on it. It was a wrench to give it up from the home office, but it was needed at this shop because it was built to hold rows and rows of glass jar candles.

This view of the Dark Room is so bright and cheery! I've added a red lamp shade, red curtains, and lower wattage bulbs, so it has a bit more ambiance now. Sept 2012

What is now our incense room, with green floor, used to hold a lot of consignment wares and had a teal floor. We started out with a fountain in the corner there, but people kept putting their hands in it so we took it out.

Looking from the incense room toward our "front" door (which faces the Red Cup). The streetside door, we don't use, because of a weak place in the floor that the landlord needs to have repaired.

Handmade soap in an early display. We ditched the baskets and moved everything closer together, but when you're starting out, you kinda need to take up a lot of space, visually, because there isn't a whole lot of product to do it. Opening a store is expensive!!
