I fell in love with retail and studio space

Not only am I a year older, this year I needed to get my license renewed. I decided to make getting to the registry a fun adventure and set off on my bike. I knew there would be nice stops on the way as I had discovered Kafe Lila on the internet a few days before. Now I can't recall how this discovery took place, nonetheless, it happened and upon finding Kafe Lila I laid eyes upon the Grant

Isn't she purdy? I love old buildings and Pawtucket is filled with them. 

As I sat in the cafe drinking an Iced Latte with soy I decided to take a look at the building's website. That is when I fell in love. I discovered this space is for rent. 
Well, not all of this space. The 750 square feet behind the red doors are for rent. I think this would make for some great studio/retail space. I would have some room to teach jewelry classes. I am thinking enameling, tool making and a few classes on texture. But I dream. It isn't feasible for one person to do. Well, not this one person. 

I need to know that one day, in the not too far future, I will have a space to call my own {oh, and to share with other lovely artisans} where I can walk by a pretty cafe and wave hello to fellow tenants. I would smile knowing that I have accomplished something for myself, the art which I love deeply and don't know how to live without. I would also smile knowing that I was able to provide a place for other artisans to display and sell their work or to come and share new ideas and techniques. It doesn't all seem like too much, does it? 


For now, this will remain a fountain, inside a building I get to visit on my bike riding days. 
But, just for now, not always.
