End of September 2003 and into early October - page 5
And, finally! We actually are able to start
storing some backstock of yarns in the building!
End of November 2003 and into early December
We still haven't moved and it's almost
Christmas - but we are getting very close.
My brother, David Druding, came to visit again
to help (before Loring and Dacia's
wedding) - and one major project was to fix the old broken sign that used to
say "Cortese" (the old name of the Pontiac/GMC dealer who was here in the 70s
and 80s and from whom we bought the building) and get our sign up. This meant
replacing the huge sheet of plastic on both sides (in sections). We had vinyl
letters made at TAP Plastics that say ' straw.com ' and adhered them to the new
plastic for the north side of the sign. But had to put them in place on the
existing plastic base on the south side of the sign. Renting a big scissor lift
was necessary since the top of the sign is over 30 feet high!
The finished sign! And you can see
AND we MOVED into the Building in March 2004!
