Checkered Corner - Grand Opening this Friday!

Last weekend was the Sugar Plum Bazaar at the Parkside Mansion.  The weather on Saturday kept some people away, although some loyal customers came despite the snow storm.

Usually I take a few days to rest after a big show like Sugar Plum, but not this time.  These past few days I have been tagging inventory, loading and unloading inventory into a new shop in Downtown Littleton ....Checkered Corner!

My space in Checkered Corner is almost ready...just a few minor details left to complete this morning (Thursday).

Isa Creations is now in one of the upstairs bedroom in this historic home in downtown Littleton at Checkered Coner.

This room, which looked like this BEFORE:

I painted the room with a silver color.  Now it looks like this:

Here is a special item in my space:
 The little cast iron bird holding one of my favorite vintage hankie dresses, is a special item (not for sale).  This little bird is a reminder of my dear friend June, who lives in San Antonio TX.  June gave me this bird a few years ago.  I think of it as my good luck charm.  It's like having June near and a part of this because she, more than anyone else, knows what this means to me. 

I am exhausted!  More exhausted than I have been in a long time.


I am also very excited!  I love my space at the Checkered Corner.  I am happy to be a part of this wonderful team,  a great group of ladies....Patrice, Anita, Diane and Carolyn.

Here are the details from Patrice on the Grand Opening:
