Finally - here is Huddy's Books
Colin is a teacher and the kids have always called him Mr Huddy - so it was an easy choice for the name.
Can you spy Mr Huddy in the corner with the top hat on?
The shop is situated at a place called 'Piggly Wiggly' and this is the coffee shop / farm stall at the 'village'
Our neighbors - Sterling Wrought Iron - he makes the most amazing stuff - I will definitely post lots of pictures of this artists work.
Some more shops - it's all very new
The putt putt course - in the making
At the end of 2011 I was quiet frazzled with all the preparations for opening our book shop. We opened the shop on the 16th of December, which is the Day of Reconciliation in SA. It has been a huge success, with people loving our collection of books. The setting is amazing, so beautiful and peaceful. We went on a frantic buying spree last week preparing to stock up before we have to return to work.
The fun part - packing out all the books and seeing all the treasures we have collected over the last few months
looking very bare
Colin trying to work out where it put the hooks on the book shelves - not fun
I grabbed a little corner for my art and I couldn't believe the response. (but can you believe it I didn't take any photos!) I sold out! I was nervous about putting my art out for sale, you know all that, what will people think, is it good enough to be displayed and so on. I'm really encourage and have many plans for the year ahead to develop my art into a small business. Time of course is a bit of a problem, but I'm hoping that I can cut down my hours at work to spend more time on my art 'business'and to help Colin with the book shop. It looks like it's going to a good (great) year.
