    Seattle Factory Showroom/Store News

    Darcy, are there any plans to have the shop open in February? I am planning the last 3 uses on my ferry pass and wondering if I should reserve one for a Tim Bihn visit!!

    Heidi,

    Not in February -- we're thinking the store will be open around mid-March.

    Thanks for being patient. Our new store is at least twice as big as the previous store -- we're adding more slat wall, new fixtures, and more tables. We're especially excited about the tables: it'll make it easier for you guys to lay several bags out/lay your stuff out.

    I'm looking forward to visiting the new showroom as I prefer to buy my TB stuff in person. It doesn't help with the addiction though, I go in to checkout one certain bag only to notice just how nice the other bags are as well.

    Yes, I think a showroom grand opening / Tom Bihn fest is in order!

    Perhaps a virtual grand opening is in order for those of us too far away to attend the real thing? Maybe you guys can Twitter about it or post photos to Flickr so that we can at least drool on our keyboards.

    How about a live feed via webcam?

    I agree! I wonder if vBulletin offers one?

    Any updates on the grand opening?

    Yes, a live webcam feed is great idea! Also I feel a modest firework display and one of those big inflatable "bouncy rooms" is in order. Come on, we got up the ante on the Washington DC folks with their Tom Bihn fest!

    It's March!

    I know its been posted that opening won't be until mid-March, but I thought I'd get this back to the top so we can all start harassing Darcy again for pics, dates, times, events, etc.




    BTW, anybody know why I get the smilies options only part of the time?

    Phew, I'm not the only one who thought, "It's March now! Wonder if they're ready for us yet?!" Color me eager!
