CV Flagship!

The day has arrived! I can't believe it, it's actually here. I haven't been writing a lot lately as we've been real busy with this project here:
 Our very first stand alone, flagship, CV store has a soft open tomorrow! Soft means you can come in but we may not quite ready. Forgive us. Saturday is the hard open - meaning we better be ready.
I can't believe we've gone from this:
To this.
When the buildout was finished it looked like this: with, from left to right all the people that made this happen: Christian and Marshall, the builders, Erin and Barbara of Barbara Bestor Architecture, and Greta our store manager.
And now it's this:
When facade/sign painter extraordinaire was painting the windows
 To this very cool lettering on top windows.
Now we've got product out like this:
 And like this! So exciting, please come by!
We're at:
p.s. before we made this into our store we used to work out of this space! It's so beautiful now. I'm so happy to add it to our lovely neighborhood and so thankful to all the creative and talented people who made it happen!

Oh my gosh, it's gorgeous! I especially love the lettering at the top of the building. Like Anonymous, I would totally scope out the new space if I lived in town. Actually, I might be in L.A. for a couple of days next week, so maybe I will be able to stop by!
