I have been missing for awhile quite awhile from blogging, haven't I?
Sorry 'bout that! It all started when we went on vacation down to our
cabin for 2 1/2 weeks and when I got back I literally had a cake due the
next day, so I just kind of fell out of the habit of writing.

There are some new things happening around here and one of the biggest
is a possible retail storefront for Grandma Tillies Bakery! We are in the
paperwork stage right now and the whole process seems as slow as
molasses in January to me.

It is just a tiny space, only 209 sq. ft, but the good part is it is right in
the downtown area and easily reached by walking. There is plenty of
parking and a nice big sidewalk in front at street level, all important
things to consider in a retail location.

I will not be baking there, but will bake in my health department
approved kitchen and packaging everything there to sell down in the
store. The owners of the building are kind enough to lease me an extra
refrigerated display case they have in storage, so I will be able to sell
things like cream pies and parfait type desserts.

So wish me luck, I will be updating as things move along.

Here is my husband inside the new space (which we will be painting
a nice light shade of vintage yellow) My plan is to decorate so it looks
like a kitchen from the 1950's era.

Having your goodies readily available right down town is almost a reason for visiting Sitka again!
All the best!

What a great idea, Love the 50's theme. there was a place in QLD Australia That had all 50's decor and ornaments every where. the staff wore 50's clothes and hair. It was always crowded. Sold fish an chips and cafe type meals. She sold out to a property developer! Her ex hubby owns Daydream Island here in the Whitsundays
Good luck for you...
