Getting the Shop Ready

After years of imagining what it would be like to start her own store, Robyn finally took the plunge into retail ownership. Nestled between galleries, coffee shops, and high end boutiques, Robyn Pandolph Design Studio opened it's doors for Robyn's 50th birthday party. But let me tell you, it wasn't all that fun in the six weeks leading up to the celebration.

We were lucky enough to get custom cabinets installed, here they are halfway through. The white curved triangle turned into our awning.

The installation of track lighting in a space with 20 foot ceilings means renting a scissor lift. It was helpful when applying the logo to the wall.


With the fabric on the shelves it started to feel done.

Some engineering had to take place to put up the awning, but it was worth it.

This is the first time in a while that all of Robyn's quilts are in one place.

A quiet, little space for Robyn to design.

Celebrating the Big 50!
