September 2010 we moved the business out of the house and into local rented premises. It was the best decision we made.
We quickly outgrew our first unit ........
and in February half term, last year we moved everything next door into this larger space.
The week was spent making up shelving for a warehouse space and making a carpeted pick and pack area where we would work.
It was light and spacious and gave us plenty of space to grow (or so we thought!)
We celebrate our 1 year anniversary this week and it is frightening how quickly we are filling the space. I have spent the whole day over there, tidying up, moving things around - really working out how to maximise the little space that is left.
This was my area this time last year.
This is my space now!
The card wall - all clean and clear and uncluttered,
is now full to the brim - I will seriously have to think how many more designs I can introduce to our card range just because of available space.
The 'warehouse' area is full to the brim with boxes of stuff
and made up stock ready to be picked and packed for orders.
I went to Ikea and now have cube units on top of each other so that no space is wasted.
You realise just how many postcard designs we have when you see them all out on view like this.
And our tape remains a popular product.
Next on the list is a trip to the tip
And I dream of more space!!!!!!!
Who knows where we will be this time next year!
