After months of searching, Drizzle & Shine finally has a space. It's tough for a yet-established business with no proven sales record to be a contender in the touch commercial rental market. Fortunately, I found a landlord who understands my vision and is excited to have me join their existing tenants.
Many spaces were new and would have required a lot of work (time and money) to turn them from concrete boxes into workable spaces. Other spaces were too small or too big, and still others were off the beaten path, away from potential customers.
In true goldilocks style, I found a space that isn't too big or small, not too expensive, and close to where people live, work, and play. It's in Capitol Hill. I'll give the details later, after I get the space into shape. With any luck (and a lot of elbow grease), we'll be open in May.
