Barber Shop...

On Monday I got an email marked highly important from a friend needing help.
She was put on a project to source items and vendors to set up an old school barber shop
for an event in San Francisco and she didn't have a clue where to start.
So, she reached out to me knowing that I love vintage, have a few ideas where to find it
and have the experience in propping and styling events like this.

The catcher to all this was one, I have a full time job so this would have to be in addition and two
we had one week to find it all and get it shipped to San Francisco. Not impossible but good god,
not going to be easy without some creative sourcing.

I am happy to say I think we have done it. Still looking for a retro colored TV that works and
some smaller items that can be sourced on site. On top of it all we were able to source it all
on the West coast knowing that with Sandy playing pick up sticks with the East coast we weren't going to be able to get anything out of the East.

It was a fun project and I love my friend for one asking and two her humor through it all.
In this business if you can't laugh at the crazy's then you aren't going to survive.

So glad you found what you needed. Wish I could have helped but I had nothing.
