Now that Bottorff's & Company (formally Ruffles & Rust Square) is officially closed in Historic Downtown Snohomish, it's time to get busy lighting some fires under some landlords and real estate people!
The process of finding a new place wasn't as easy as I thought it was going to be and it got to be more than I could handle during the Christmas season, then we rolled right into store liquidation. So I had to put somethings on hold.
NOW............... I'm going to make some thing happen!
So today I took my Bottorff's & Company posse out for a little sight seeing and property scouting
So after we looked at some disappointing spaces and were a bit discouraged, we ventured up to the Skagit Valley to look at a couple places.
Some of you might know this is where I grew up. I'm a Bow- Edison girl
My friends have been trying to get me to open a store in the Skagit Valley for years. The timing just never seemed to be right.
Today................... our last stop was a space that my friend Shelley (Shelley's Shack) told me about.
So we headed to the cutest forgotten little town in Western Washington.
And when we walked through the doors we all gasped!
Here's what we found
Look at the skylight!!!
Ooooooooooooh the brick walls!
The lighting! The Fir floors!
Can you see it? Can you envision it? I know there is a lot of office equipment, but try to look around it.
I almost peed my pants when I walked through the doors! It was so hard to be all cool, aloof and not appearing too excited. I still had to get the details on this gem and try to negotiate some sort of lease if this was going to be the place.
I loved it! Debbie loved it! Everyone loved it!
And................ well I think this is the winner!
We are signing the lease as you are reading this!
OH WAIT!!! I forgot to tell you where it was at!
Bottorff's & Company new address will be
813 Metcalf Street, Sedro Woolley, WA 98284
Now don't say "NO WAY! I'm not driving there!" just yet.
I was apprehensive at first, but then I started looking around, thinking about all the great stops between your house and the new store and thought.............
this is a good day trip!
I'm going to start telling you about some of my favorite places and some new places I've discovered while we're moving in and getting ready for your visit.
And please list your favorite places in the comments!
You might know some place I haven't discovered yet.
I'm planning on opening in March with a soft opening (stay tuned for exact date) and a full blown grand opening in April.
I can be a new stop on your Tulip Festival Tour
