I thought that after ushering in 2012 in a quiet way with my wife, my brother-in-law (John) and his wife (Erika) I should write my first proper blog entry – it’s going to be a busy year.
So….where are we? Well Katie and I are now settled in our new flat in Harrogate, a planning application has been submitted and solicitors have been engaged to deal with the lease agreement for the shop.
The chosen venue for taking the plunge is a former party shop at 22 Oxford Street. It’s a great location just off the high street and on the same street as; independent retailers Jespers and Duttons for Buttons, larger retailers including Marks and Spencer and Argos as well as the Harrogate Theatre. Here is a photo of the shop as it looked in the summer when I first enquired about it.
The new year brings with it an endless list of things that we need to do to turn this dream into a reality and we hope you will be interested in reading about it as we go along!
