Here is a quick before and after shots of our new facility. And here’s the story, we purchased the building about 5 years ago. Then came the start of the renovation. The goal was to bring it back to the look and feel of the original building construction in the early 1900s.
Inside the store was gloomy with an 8 foot dropped ceiling tiles and a metal awning addition to the front that covered up the original glass block windows. The awning was getting tired looking and the glass front of the building needed repairs. The front of the building holding up the windows was falling apart, the roof leaked and the back of the building was not secure.
Over a 5 year period, you know it only takes money, lots and lots of money for our sweet money pit it now reveals the original structure with modern security added.
Look over our webpage about the renovations to see how this was accomplished with the help of friends and a professional contractor.
So here is sad before photo, ours is the storefront in the middle.

And here is the after photo.
A special Thank You to all of those who helped make this dream a reality. God Bless You.
We are looking forward to our next online auction, New Year’s Eve. Come by and check out the facility.

Looks good! What kind of floors? (Did you put in a soda fountain? I like strawberry malts.)
Hello Bob, We put in cement floors. These floors will not fall in. Thanks for the interest, hope you and the Mrs will visit us soon.
Looks great, looking forward to seeing the new place. Much luck and success
