Guiding You In!

My Little shoppe is on the main Historic Street in Folsom (Sutter St) where many come to visit, attend the Art Walk, the Thursday night markets or Farmers Markets on Sundays and the Annual Antique Fairs, but Remember Im at the end of the street, and down a hall way in the back of an old Barn (where they use to tie up the Wells Fargo Stage Coach).
So now that there is the Big Revitalization going on- (tearing up of street-awnings-sidewalks-dust and construction) things are bit tricky for a new girl like me..

So I decided to make a sign (showing everyone where to go)..
We bought some 1inch thick Particle Board, I drew a hand on it (not a good one) but an idea of a hand.
Had my husband cut it out for me.
Attached it to an upside plant stand -that use to be my daughters bed side table.

Now you can see the front of our building- others have thier signs out- some A Frames- well I have a hanging (Gracefully Vintage) sign, but thought (hmm) my hand might bring some attention to our building.

What do you think, would that grab your attention if you were driving by?
I painted it, painted the stand, and added some toile fabric( got to have my touch to it) to look like a sleeve, some ribbon and there is my little
(where you should shop sign)..
and oh yes i set it right out in the street...
