|Lisa, owner of DYNT @ DYNT on a Spring day in May.|
It's also been a while since I've introduced or explained anything about me and the shop, so this week you get a bit of a personal blog.
A few weeks ago, my hubby's Aunt Barb stopped in to visit me at the shop. She brought me a wardrobe trunk that had belonged to my hubby's Great-Great-Grandfather. Like many things in this shop, it's a hand-me-down from the family. This is both a financial choice and a personal preference. I want DYNT to feel comfortable and cozy.
Sometimes I don't think the standard merchandise displaying methods really lend themselves toward cozy. They also tend to be costly. But the downfall to this is that merchandising products are designed to hold merchandise. So they are very efficient at what they do. I'm hoping to reach a good mix, as I need to cram a ton of yarn and supplies into a small space. This too helps with making DYNT fee cozy. Things like the wardrobe trunk really help with this...do you have any idea how much stuff that thing will hold? I don't either, yet. But I imagine it's a ton!
I need to thank some friends, The Curries, who recently moved to the West Coast as well as Josh's crew of workers. The Curries were able to supply me with some grid wall and it's come in handy. Without their contribution and the hand-me-downs, I'm not sure how I would get all this stuff in here! Josh's crew custom built the basket wall for me...without it, I'm not sure how I would have been able to display quite as much yarn and keep the brick walls exposed. Because again, the brick walls lend a certain air to the space.
If none of this makes any sense to you, then you need to stop in and see the space! I'm constantly amazed and thankful for all the help and support my friends and family have provided during the past few months. Thanks!
