Well we got our 30 day notice at our art gallery. We have had a good run on it. Almost 2 years to the date.
We have been in this prime area for almost no rent for this long. The space normally costs about $6000. a month and we've gotten to have it for a portion of our sales.They didn't want empty spaces on this well known block and wanted to have art there, so we were chosen. It's been a good run and now the economy is picking up and places are starting to be filled again. We are losing it to a Cupcakery. Which sounds yummy to me and I wish them well. We were told that there is a possibility that we might have a chance for one of the other open buildings on this same street. We can only hope. The owner and management really like us and that is a plus.
This is bitter sweet for me. It has opened some major doors for me personally and I have grown in so many ways. I hate to see it go but if it has to, I can only hope I can use it as a huge learning experience use it to my advantage.
