And I thought yesterday was a good day...

I thought that yesterday receiving 20 funky flasks in the mail would be the highlight of my week. Turns out today is just as fantastic! Shara Porter Designs sent an amazing mix of leather goods for the store. Check out these pics below and see just how fabulous she is...

Things that make me want to be a bad girl...

Swish may have swayed a bit from the "Local" rule for these bad boys. Really though, it could not be resisted! These flasks made by Girls & Gags are just itching to be hidden in my purse... Bad girl style.

Things I love...

Getting Settled

Almost one week open and Swish is looking pretty good!

Customers seem pleased to have another store join the Water Street neighborhood and even more pleased to see that all is crafted by local artisans!

Personally, I love being across the street from Stella Blues. The outdoor patio directly across the street is great and gives the feel of a Nantucket restaurant near the water!

Centered and all!

In the New England weather tradition we had rain, heavy winds and perfect sun. It turns out that it was easiest to do this with a cloudy sky. The glare was so bright when the sun was shining that it was nearly impossible to put up.            

The lovely patrons sitting on the patio at Stella Blue's across the street watched the process. Good and bad! If you want to check out Stella Blues website it is:

A work in progress...

View of the storefront without lettering or signage. It's cute huh?

Inside gets a bright painted wall and a random red ladder. 
Both things make me happy! 
I am so in love with the old wooden floors.

Lola makes a visit and loves the shop! 

I think she might be a bit too young- this was the reaction!

Coming 6.18.2010 in Warren, RI
