Gilman Gallery Antique Mall OPEN!

Finally! Our mall space in Gilman Gallery Antique Mall in Issaquah, WA is complete. The mall opened on Father’s Day however my fellow picka sista and I had a few issues with our ‘shelves.’ I’m pleased to say the ladders (shelving) are mounted and still on the wall though we had some dicey wobbly moments before Karen figured out how to secure the ladders. I was completely useless with securing the ladders but hey we all have our talents and fortunately Karen is quite a good handy woman.

Sheesh FINALLY we got the stinkin ladders mounted onto the wall.

I LOVE the ladders as our shelves and I must say we received many kudos from customers and fellow dealers as we toiled and cursed our way through the process. We would love to take all of the credit for putting up the ladders but picka donkey boy (husband) Hardy secured the first ladder. We assisted and luckily paid close attention because the mall closed before we could put up the second ladder.

The following day at 11:00 sharpish we put up the second ladder. After multiple trips away from Gilman Gallery for restorative snacks and Home Depot visits we finished securing the second ladder at ahem . . . 4:30. I’d like to say the ladder idea was all me but it wasn’t. We visited the Farm Chicks Antique Market in June and came home with loads of ideas and plenty of pictures and enthusiasm.
