Like Goldilocks...it had to be just right!
1320 Chase St. #8 Algonquin, IL 60102
Well, friends, I have looked for over a year to find the place that was just right to expand my Dish & Decor business! Some spaces were too small and wouldn't allow for expansion. And some were too big. Some smelled of grease. Some had no washrooms. Some had no walls. I looked at places ranging from 2,000 to 20,000 square feet. We landed on a spot that is 6,000 square feet which is just right. I am beyond thrilled that I now have a beautiful design center to create tablescapes with clients and a large warehouse that houses all my rentals with spacious packing and washing areas. For those of you that have been to my Crystal Lake site, you know how much I needed more room and a washing area. I really didn't want to settle until I found the space that was perfect. In this location with nice curb appeal, I believe I have found just exactly what I have needed.
I signed the lease on January 2, and then the real work began. The space needed cleaning and updating, so I requested many quotes. By renting a scissor lift, my team and I cleaned and dusted the warehouse rafters and power washed the walls ourselves. Next, Kristina used a Zamboni type machine to scrub the warehouse floors. I attended auctions to find the best deals on washing equipment, steel tables, carts, and more. I have ordered more shelving units and labeled the shelving units we have. It is nice to have everything accessible and much more efficient in the warehouse space.
Then came the FUN part, the design center. I knew exactly how I wanted it to look because I have been dreaming of this for years. New flooring, paint and cosmetic changes were a must. And last but not least, we have been moving shelving units, and rental pieces to the new design center for display. Tablescapes are set up for clients to envision what is possible. Dish & Decor is a tabletop design consulting business. We are not planners. We assist clients in creating the tablescapes of their dreams because the table is an integral part of your event and adds so much to the venue. By appointment, we offer free consultation services for tabletop styling. We will work with your planner, caterer and florist as needed.
This space allows me to do so many different things with my dishes and decor. I am beyond excited about the future of Dish & Decor Vintage Rental. As we look ahead, we will be hosting our Open House so watch for the posts!
