a new beginning...


spring is a time of anticipation. of new beginnings. although minnesota "spring" is still several weeks (possibly months) out, we winter weary norski's are planning ahead and looking to the future.
dancing goat studio had a great "under the radar" start in downtown new london. I did little to no advertising and refused to allow the newspapers to write stories about who I was and what I was doing. at least until I knew who I was and what I was doing. after my trial start (august - december) I closed shop doors for 2 months for a chance to re-group and basically re-everything.
I am in the process of re-arranging, re-painting and re-thinking the dancing goat studio space. I realized that I need more studio work space and less store front space. I emptied out the studio storage space and took inventory of the flea market finds packed and stacked in there (found some great hidden finds that will be repurposed and for sale this spring) my goal is to be open for "by chance" walk in business by march 1st and then begin my official business hours: mondays 10 - 5 and the second weekend of every month. my upcoming sale is scheduled for thurs-sat march 10 - 12. and, as always, my dancing goat inventory will change out monthly, following either the theme of the season or the whim's of my muse.
The above image is a "before" photo of my dancing goat studio space. I will be adding "after" photo's as I work to ready my studio for spring 2011!!!
