Barnhill’s – I made it!

I’m back! I have a bit of a different look and a new address:

And My name’s different since my professional and writing life are now one in the same. (Claire Collins is a pseudonym for Tracy) But it’s still me. I hope you guys will have a chance to come visit!

  1. Welcome back, CC. I’ve already splattered some words on your bare walls over at Barnhill’s. Looks exciting. I’ll try to remember to use my “little voice” when I visit.

    Over and out.

    • You are so sweet. “little voice” awwww. That’s nice. Yes, it’s a business thing over there but I hope it’s still going to be fun. Keep checking over there. I did a video interview and some newspaper interviews. We are going to have tv ads and all kinds of stuff. I’m scared to death. What the hell was I thinking?

  2. I’ll have to pop in next time I am in the area. It will probably be September or October.

    • That would be so cool…

      But how will I know it’s really you?

      I’ll say, “Is that really you?”

      and all you’ll say from under that beard is “Am not. Am not.”

  3. Would you happen to if the building used to be a salon or day spa?

    • I think it’s always been offices. You can google map it. It’s on the west end downtown. We’ve had a rough time getting all of the permits because it hasn’t been permitted for retail before and the building is historic. It was built in like 1904 I think.

    I was starting to get worried about you Tracy. Glad you check in. Is the phone still working? Just checking.

    I need to pop over and see what you’re up to. 🙂

    Looks wonderful (I particularly like the murals)! AND I really like the idea of displaying art as well!
    I know you will have great success, and if Annabelle and I ever make it out of our apartment / MO we would love to stop by (maybe if Annabelle gets her book published it might even make it into your lovely store some day – that would be pretty darn exciting)! 🙂

  7. Am I not to come around here anymore?

  8. So are we supposed to dump this link and not come back??

    Good luck with the bookstore, I’ve been over to Barnhills…it looks lovely………I’ll create a new link

    • Thanks Sean! We were planning to open on Friday the 26th, but that means they were supposed to start rebuilding my deck in the back today. They didn’t. They won’t start until Monday so I don’t think we will have our final permits in time to open next Friday
