about 4 years ago, we made the decision to move to round top. to move our families. our business. our lives. after looking in cities across the state far and wide for the perfect home for junk gypsy (and for ourselves), we realized the answer was right in front of us all along. our hearts had been here all along. round top beckoned. the country beckoned.
it seemed crazy then. it seemed crazy to put a business in a town with a population of 90. anddddd maybe it’s still crazy. but now, looking back, nothing has ever been more clear. nothing has ever made more sense. we ignored the numbers. we took the 2 lane road to round top. and we’ve never looked back.
they say there is a certain round top magic that spins and twists its way through your heart and soul when you are here. and i believe it’s true. i believe it’s something you feel just passing through for the day or staying for a few nights. there’s a beautiful, sweet, magic that rests atop the pastures in the early morning sunrise as the cows are grazing.
there’s a thick, sparkly magic in the stars at night. there’s a mystical, simple magic in the moonlight shining through your windows at night. and now, i feel an undeniable bit of round top-inspired magic in our first ever junk gypsy world headquarters store located smack dab in round top.
after years and years in the making…our store is FINALLY opening. yes, FINALLY. although, there is still [lots of] work to be done…our heart-shaped gates will swing open and our arched red-doors will be unlocked to officially welcome y’all for the first time this fRiDAY, september 27 at 10 am.
and we will all be anxiously greeting y’all because we are a whole lot of giddy.
we know y’all won’t mind the fact that parts of the store are still a work in progress. we know you won’t mind that we’re still learning how to use our new super-duper high-fi flux capacitor computer system. and we know y’all really will just overlook the fact that our parking lot isn’t finished either…we’ll basically have pasture parking behind the store. but never fear, the tractor will be on hand for any all-terrain situations.
i re-read this old blog this morning…and it really inspired me. it reminded me of how far we’ve come (funny how you kind of forget how things looked in the beginning). i kinda laughed when i read the sentence “opening late spring/early summer 2012…sooo we’re only about 15 months behind schedule but anywho, i digress… basically it got me really, really excited for y’all to be here.
and then i re-read this one…i felt mission accomplished. our sanctuary of junk is now overflowing with great junk…old and new.
it’s finally ready…WE are finally ready. (god bless our gypsy team and our family who have worked around the clock the past few months).
we are all ready to welcome all of y’all home.
and for a peek inside, visit APRIL PIZANA’s BlOG and see all the gloriously, junky photos!
