SO, I’ve shared this story before, but in case ya missed it, here’s the story of how we found our adoooorable Shoppe Pacific Palisades location.
I had to reschedule a meeting (fate sign #1). Mike and I already had a meeting in Brentwood that day, but we figured we could have our meeting first and then I could meet my client in the Palisades afterwards. We were in one car so Mike would just drop me off and walk around the Palisades Village while I had my meeting. He dropped me off and parked the car RIGHT IN FRONT of the “The Cottage” (the store before our Shoppe). Parking ain’t that easy in that neighborhood (so, fate sign #2). They had put the “For Lease” sign up that morning (fate sign #3), we called, met the owner that week and BAM, we signed the papers for the space just like that.
It irritates everyone around me, because I literally talk about this all the time, but I SO believe in fate and that whatever you put out into the universe comes back to you.
So somehow in two short years, we have TWO SHOPPES and I am so humbled, so happy, so proud of our team and it makes me tear up with joy. How did we get so lucky?!? It’s truly proof that if you work hard and love what you do…. ANYTHING can happen.
We’ve only been open for a week…. And can I just personally say THANK YOU to everyone who has sent me the nicest messages and come to the Shoppe? You guys are truly the best… THANK YOU ALL!
Alrighty so now the fun part!! I know I’ve shared a few photos of the space before this turned into our Shoppe, but HOLY. COW. This is probably the most dramatic Before & After…… EVER.
Not only do I looooove this location and this little beachside town (fun fact, my first real job was right around the corner from our Shoppe now), the bones of this space allowed us make this look like our Calabasas Shoppe. The original ceilings, the windows…everything (okay, maybe not everything, but close enough).
So anyway, here’s a look at our transformation of Shoppe Pacific Palisades. Now… we’re going to get crackin’ on a third Shoppe. JK JK (…or are we???)….
