Guess what?! sadieDeluxe has a new studio and shop space that will also be open to the public (by appointment and during select business hours)! I am very excited about this new (ad)venture, and I've spent the past week and a half cleaning and painting the new space. Today I'm planning on moving all my inventory in and finally getting it set up. I would have done that yesterday, but then it rained (yay) and Asher got sick (boo), so we stayed in and watched movies most of the day.
I wanted to write this blog post so that everyone can know what's going on and be included on this completely new journey for me. After a friend encouraged me to seek a space for my work, I got excited and started checking out my options. This space was available, it's in a great spot, and it has TONS of light. I will be setting up a photo studio within the space, as well as a spot that I can do my computer work when needed. I'm very excited to be able to work outside of my home! I love my house, but I'm sure many of you know how stir-crazy it can get when you do everything at home all the time.
Paradise is certainly not a large hub of retail or fashion...or anything, really. Nevertheless, it's my home, and I'm excited to try something new here. and I am beyond excited to have a photo studio (though my storage unit days have not been unpleasant).
Here are a few photos so far of the process. Thank you to my model Karoline who helped me paint! I had to do three coats since I was painting it white. Whew.
if you are local, stop by if you are ever in the area! the shop is at 6190 Skyway in Paradise. I will also have my photo studio set up and it will be available for other people to use as well - we can discuss rates and fees privately if you are interested in this. As this project evolves, I'm sure there will be much more to show and tell - if you know me, you know I am always dreaming up ways to collaborate and inspire, so this project is no different.
I will keep you posted.
