Progress at the SoNo MarketPlace has been steady, but painfully slow — mainly because of that pesky Hurricane Sandy. During the storm, the building that houses the marketplace took on two feet of water! So the grand opening had to be postponed. Unfortunately, all of the furniture pieces in my booth have water damage. Although they've been drying out day by day, most likely I won't be able to offer them for sale. However, they will still work nicely for display. Thank goodness I hadn't brought in my smalls yet!
Scheduled to open on November 17, I have a feeling the marketplace may need even more time to recover from the storm. However, even with the delays and flooding issues, the place is looking absolutely wonderful. I'm very excited to be a part of it and can't wait to share it with you.
