About 10:00pm the night before we open and we’re pretty much ready to roll.
We thank everybody who helped from the bottom of our hearts. Here are some of them:
Foolscap were our magnificent architects. Beyond the Pixels have incredible graphic design skills. The Makery Club’s Kyran created our fantastic joinery, and Andy gave us our shiny brasswork. The comfortable yet practical leather aprons were created by Jess Wootten. Our slick cups were hand made by Sydney’s Malcolm Greenwood. Marty, Ken and Grant’s handyman perfectionism did not go astray. Tommy the floor guy and Troy the plasterer did great.
