Future Home of Adirondack Aromatherapy

When we started our business a few years ago Mr. ADKaromatherapy & I would drive around the region pointing out various locales and saying "look its the future home of Adirondack Aromatherapy!" Jokingly of course, as we have spent the past 3 years working out of studio space in our home - first a remodeled bathroom, then a small spare bedroom off the kitchen. In reality having our own space to work was a long term goal, or so we thought.

Around Christmas / New Year I started seriously pining away for a shop of our own. After the hubub of the holiday died down I went to get my hair done, who knew this simple everyday errand would result in the signing of a lease for our very first storefront? Here is the breakdown of the whirlwind of events the past couple weeks.

January 14th - Hairdresser told me of space available at the Glens Falls Shirt Factory, a local artisans/crafters mall.
January 15th - Went to look at the space. (had never even visited this 'shirt factory' place before!)
January 16th - sent out email inquiries to persons of authority in said Shirt Factory
January 17th - signed the lease
January 18th - begins the flurry of activity dismantling the studio, soaping equipment and relocating.
Much heavy lifting was involved.
February 1st - official start of lease date
February 9th - (yesterday) OPENING DAY!

PHEW.  Now for a few shots of the new space!

 This supermodel graciously donated her time to help with opening day.

 Where the magick happens...

Mr. ADKaromatherapy's soap display.

 I had WAY too much fun arranging the display cabinets. 

We are on the 1st floor on the Shirt Factory in Glens Falls NY corner of Cooper & Lawrence Streets, one of the very first shops when you walk in (Suite #113). We plan to be open Tuesdays - Saturdays 11am - 5 pm. So stop by if you are local or in the Lake George / Adirondack Region vacationing. Just follow your nose!
