Pop-Up Shop Saturday’s

Being in business with a building has been an interesting experience. Opening the shop on weekends for the past 6 months has been eye-opening.

As the owner you have to focus early on…figure out the mission…stay focused on the vision.  If products and services don’t line up with the mission and vision don’t do it just to be doing something.  My vision is to create a space like a “barbershop” for creatives.  A place for the community to come,…
