"Hi Daniel.  Oh, yes, we fixed it.  It looks worse than it turned out to be.  The wires are really springy and they resumed their former shape.  We had walked out for a time, and the chocolate's temperature had been set a…"

Saturday in San Francisco: a visit to Tcho

It took me a whole week to find the time to get to this blog — and I'm still waiting for Tom to email me the pictures (he's in Indonesia again) — but our tour of Tcho last week was so special that I want to share it.John Kehoe is Tcho's sourcing director. He and Tom met about 5 years at a Fair Trade conference, and in the year and a half that he's been with Tcho, we've been meaning…See More

Last days before opening

Posted on July 5, 2009 at 10:00am 4 Comments

The sign painter was still working on the windows at 8 last night. I guess he didn't go to the fireworks either. Tom and I were making lists.





The soft opening date is now Wednesday. The city signed off Thursday afternoon, thank goodness. We started moving the packaging and shipping materials in Friday, the day the storage shelves were installed. More stock will be moved and organized today and tomorrow.



We were lucky with… Continue

We're still hoping for a soft opening on July 6 - that's very soon! And the invitations for the Grand Opening, July 11, are going out Friday. No turning back now.

Here's what's been going on lately.

Progress

Here's Frank Zika installing the door today:

And here's some of the furniture stacked up in the shop - and out of our house at last!

And I am here endlessly typing up little signs.



The press release seems to be working - and so does Twitter.



So far so… Continue

hi eve! your shop is looking fantastic! i'm in the same boat you are right now (But several months behind) we are moving into a new location and expanding, (but on a low budget) and i was just wondering how you went about just doing everything? we have a space we're leasing but looking for plates/cups/flatware, looking for a small 36-inch dessert case (we're going to put chocolates and truffles in curio cabinets) but did you have web sites you looked at? and those vintage ads/postcards...gorgeous. i would love to buy one just for me! was that an ebay discovery? :0) and don't know if you're offering this stuff at all, but i'm thinking of offering some aprons and towels, and "chocolate stuff" anything fun to do with chocolate....have you stumbled across any sites in your retail search that might be fun to look through?
sorry so long...but i just love your blog entries and hope your grand opening went smoothly a couple days ago!
best of luck!!
