Come along with Chloe the Dachshund + me
as we walk downtown + fan the fire of “Mommy’s” retail fantasies.
Only a few blocks from our house, we spied this charming garage:
How crazy is it that I’m dreaming of opening my retail store downstairs
+ creating our adorable apartment upstairs?
Okay. That’s not going to happen.
Let’s view this darling restaurant, which was recently sold + renamed:
Perhaps we should have purchased said restaurant for my work/live dream,
as there is already an apartment upstairs.
Okay. No worries. Plan B is right next door.
A vacant lot!
Don’t worry, in my head, it’s already been sold — to us —
+ we’re going to build something like this:
Naturally, I’ve already selected my architect,
Allison Ramsey from Beaufort, South Carolina.
So. While my plans continue to be thwarted,
it’s good to know that someone out there is realizing their new biz dream.
That someone is opening a new restaurant,
+ from the looks of it, someone has excellent taste.
That facade + those lights rule my little world!
Oops. Sorry about the trash barrel closeup!
But wait. What’s this, next to the new restaurant space?
It was home to a toy + hobby store, which seems to have closed.
That’s either going to be one huge restaurant or
one fantastic location for my new biz!
Meanwhile, there’s this:
It’s the 2 Basset Hounds who, coincidentally,
spend their days in the retail shop of their humans!
Chloe was very excited + insisted that we have a meet + greet.
Sorry Chloe. Maybe next time.
Speaking of which,
next time I’ll share yet another retail hope + dream,
involving none other than my retail idol, Ralph Lauren.
