The Primitique is Open!

We're Open! We're Open! We're OPEN!

The Primitique, that is. We're open!

You may or may not recall this post, where I shared some upcoming changes in my business. In June, Primitiques closed in Poetry. This past weekend, The Primitique opened in Royse City. We're Open!

Yes, the transition took a few months, but I enjoyed developing The Primitique, aka The P. I've shopped. And shopped. And ok. I've shopped. You know I love to shop, don't ya? (We're Open!)

When we were given the green light to start moving in, we got busy.

David, my sister Kelly, and Robelyn were a big help in getting everything in order.

Kelly & Robelyn Hug
At 1am, the night before the Grand Opening, Kelly and Robelyn paused for a hug. Whew! We all needed hugs at that late (or would that be early?) hour!
The Primitique is excited to carry red.neck chic pocketbooks, hats, vintage hand dyed slips and Saddle Tramp western shirts, restyled by our own Robelyn of rnc. (We sold some already, cuz, you know, we're open!)
Whites with Vent
Of course, we have our whites with some industrial pieces thrown in. (Some of this sold, too. Um. We're Open!)
Deer and Antelope
The P. Where the deer and the antelope play.
Long Table and then some
I do love to use horse apples.

And now, I must confess. The day of our Grand Opening, I never even picked up my camera. Happily, I was too busy talking to folks, writing tickets, wrapping goodies, and helping load to take any pictures! (Cuz, we're open!)

Robelyn was able to take a few pictures, so be sure to check her blog.

If you click here, you can see all of the pictures I did take, from the concrete pad to the building of the building, to the wonderfully fun task of decorating.

I'd like to thank my family, friends and old and new customers who came out Saturday to help us celebrate our Grand Opening. It would have been mighty lonely without all of y'all!

Also, a big thanks to all of you who blogged about my Grand Opening! I so much appreciate y'all!
