So mark your calendars for JUNE 27 and come visit us at our OPEN HOUSE! But wait! There's more!
That is also the week of Lorain's International Festival. A wonderful small-town carnival with rides, games, pageants, music and FOOD. International food! We're talking pierogies and empenadas, people! Kids under 12 are free and everyone else is only $2. And this all goes down right behind our store at the beautiful Black River Landing.
So if seeing our exhausted faces isn't enough, you can make a whole day of it by experiencing one of Lorain County's most fabulous of traditions.
In other Revival news....
- We've submitted our exterior paint proposal to the city, which we are thankfully not doing ourselves.
- Scott's going to try his hand at a little masonry to brick up the old coal chute in the basement, which unfortunately suffered some damage and needs to be filled in.
- Scott has repaired the water damage to the walls on the first floor and has been able to make progress on the ceiling. Next stop, floor buffing.
- Country Living Magazine contacted us to use two of our vintage coolers in a photo shoot for an upcoming article on soda collectibles. I don't mind saying, that is pretty awesome!
- Preparing to reclaim a barn this weekend that was recently demolished in Lorain County. Endless possibilities... (especially for future blog material).
And have I ever mentioned how much I love the water department? Because at some point over this "chilly" winter our water was turned off. We didn't notice at first, because we had turned it off at our meter to keep it out of the pipes. But at one point Scott turned it back on to use the restroom and nothing happened. So I called. Always fun. And was informed that they had not turned it off.
Now, this isn't something that we thought about a lot. We rarely needed water and it was so flipping cold. We kept putting off making the appointment to have someone check it out. Until Scott could no longer enter the bathroom due to the stench. That's when we made our move. And do you know what we found out? It was turned off at the street. Please insert my exasperated sigh here. Water is currently flowing freely at 647 Broadway. For how long?
Maybe it's about time to share some pictures? So you can be extra impressed when you walk in and don't see the load of crap sitting in the middle of the floor?
