It's been strange, breaking up with Colorado. Every time I have to tell someone that I can't take any new clients, I feel like a big jerk. I know I'm only doing it to be fair to those that have unfinished pieces, but still... I'm not good at saying no to anyone.
So there's one location in the neighborhood we love that's been up on Craigslist for a couple months now, and we're falling more and more in love with it. We were able to see it while we were in San Francisco last month, and every time I get online to scope out available rentals, there she is, taunting me and reminding me how sexy she is. We finally decided that it was time to give the realtor a call, at the very least, even though we have three more months before go time. Turns out that there's a reason there's only three tattoo shops in North Beach... they make it pretty difficult for anything but apparel and retail to open in those storefronts. It doesn't mean it's impossible, but it might end up being quite a bit tougher. The realtor was very nice, he said that he'd gladly talk to the owner of the building and run the idea past him... But even if that pretty little storefront doesn't work out, the realtor ended up being super helpful, and said he'd be happy to line up a bunch of real estate for us to check out when we go back in May. And he's an attorney, which is awesome, because we need one to sign off on our LLC, so we accidentally killed off two birds with one stone by getting in touch with him. Huzzah.
Time is moving so quickly and so incredibly slow right now, it's hard to keep my head in the game. There's so much more to do before we leave, and so much of it can't be done until April that it's really driving us nuts.
But seriouisly. Try to tell me this
isn't absolutely sexy and right where Tattoo Boogaloo needs to be.
