I am really excited about writing this post! We have been looking for premises to open our Trixie Lixie sewing shop for over a year and in May this year we found the perfect place in Gelligaer Gardens in Cardiff, easy we thought. Give us the key in a couple of weeks, quick shop fit, open in July! Oh no! It certainly is not that easy! It takes months of lease negotiating, solicitors, land registry etc etc so you can imagine our excitement when we finally got the key on 22nd November!
So we began the process of building flat packs and putting up shelves ….
We chose a dark colour because we think it shows off the colours of the fabrics well. Once the shelving was all in we began moving the stock in, we have traded online for over 3 years and our stock has been in various rooms for storage so it was great to finally get it all out together, and quite a surprise that we have got so much!
I had the most fun doing the shop window and adding a few Christmas touches!
So we managed to open on Saturday 3rd December, thank you to all our visitors so far and we are looking forward to seeing many more of you.
Come and see us at 25 Gelligaer Gardens, Cathays, Cardiff CF24 4LT you can give us a ring on 02920 344464 and you can visit the website at http://www.trixielixie.co.uk
