Tags 25 Main Street, moving

Somehow, we’ve relocated even earlier than anticipated! The 25 Main location was in dire need of attention. The carpet was gross, the walls were filthy after many years of neglect, and quite frankly, it smelled funny. The building owner brought it up to snuff with a great deal of hard work, and brought Mark in to help towards the end. I’ve mentioned that Mark is a man of many skills, a number of which he put to use towards renovating our new space. He put in weeks of labor, and without that effort, we’d still be waiting to get in.

What had we done?!?Just like that, Mark and I took the leap of faith together, rented the space at 74 Main Street on a handshake with the landlord, and fully committed to making a go of it in the soap and sundry business.

(In retrospect, that thought must have been dancing around my subconscious since Aunt Michelle's "care package" arrived, because it came out so naturally, and...

Word spread fast, and the BBQ business was booming! Bisbee couldn't get enough of Mark's slow smoked goodness. I had worked my way up the ranks and I was managing the bar and working the weekend night shifts. Business was great! The building that houses the bar is large and historic, and at that point, had quite a bit of underutilized space. Perhaps inspired by the success of Mark's BBQ operation, the bar owner decided to develop one of the spaces by building an industrial kitchen and dining room. Mark and I spearheaded the operation and helped to establish the...
