Our store just won an award! My husband Bob and I went to an awards ceremony and annual appreciation banquet this evening put on by the Ocean Beach Mainstreet Association. Our award is "Most Creative Use of Commercial Space". There are over 350 businesses in our Ocean Beach business district so we were very flattered by the award. In the front of our builiding there is a setback or alcove so we had a fancy iron facade installed which created an extra room or foyer for us where we have outdoor garden furniture, chippy painted tables, etc. The back of our store was a small parking lot so we built a fence and gate and had a cottage built and created a backyard garden retail area. We love our back yard! there are architectural items, potting benches, garden statuary, signs, iron plant stands, planters, and cast iron outdoor furniture. It's been so much fun so to get this award was the icing on the cake. Thank you OBMA for noticing our effort!
