This week at the CB2 DIY Saturday my station was placed on the landing to the second floor and it worked much better than being at the front door. I think the customers felt more comfortable in the store by the time they passed that area and they were more inclined to stop and ask questions. I had many. The most challenging was from a young man with a floor plan of his new condo that needed help with furniture lay-out. It was probably the most bizarre lay-out I have seen for a very long time and at 800 sq. ft. it shouldn't have been so difficult. Those condo designers should really speak to designers and decorators before building such odd spaces that are not condusive to a simple sofa with TV and table and chairs. So annoying! But... we did come up with a plan that was a little different and he was thrilled beyond belief! He couldn't believe he got free advice that made such a difference. You too can come get free advice at my last DIY Saturday at CB2 next Saturday, May 5th from 2 - 4 PM at the Queen & Bathurst CB2. And if nothing else, you won't regret a visit to this awesome new store located in the old Big-Bop night club. They did a great job preserving the integrity of the building too.
Hope to see you there! Come say hi.
