A little nonsense now and then is good for the soul…

Jake\'s Place

You wonder why I keep posting things with these type titles? Well, most of you know, but my sister & brother in law opened a new (beautiful) store down on the river walk in San Antonio. I am so very excited for them and cannot wait to see the shoppe!

The store is called Jake’s Place, a Life is good “Genuine Neighborhood Shoppe.” It’s in the most perfect little spot down on the river walk and loaded with casual wear, t-shirts, work-out clothes, and fun toys (Frisbee anyone?) for all ages and a few species. They opened the shoppe just in time for the Final Four in San Antonio, and had a great time watching all of the Kansas and Memphis fans cruise around the area. (funny: ask Martha what color blue Kansas fans wear and what color blue Memphis fans wear).

Some photos from their opening weekend are below. I can’t wait to go see the shoppe, I’ll be sure to post some updated photos when we get down there. Be sure to stop by if you’re in the neighborhood!

A little view into the store, it looks great! I like the jeep coming out of the wall in the top of the picture:

The Goods!

It looks like everyone is anxiously watching that first transaction happening! YAY! Officially open!

The First Transaction!

This woman certainly knows how to fold t-shirts (you guys are lucky she’s not trying to iron them too). She’s such a generous woman, always giving and helping out:

Fantastic Helper at the Shoppe

The best looking model of Life is Good products for sure! (yea, the one in pink, not the scruffy boys):

..and did I mention that Abby was in the process of removing her hat and flinging it to the floor. Next went Jake’s. That’s what she thinks of hats. Such fun!!!

Too bad we did not have a picture of the “all-nighter” that mom & I pulled to get all of the items into inventory in time to open for the Final 4. Mom dubbed “I’m Still Standing” as our theme song… it happened to be playing at 4:00 am when we were still very much standing with our SKU scanner guns. Then, when we were finally wrapping up at 5:30 am, she got stuck on slap-happy laughter writing a note to Jake which said “morning morn” instead of “nighty-night…” you had to be there, of course! Good mother & daughter memories.. great mom.

Not to mention dad– he put in plenty of time for several weeks too. We are blessed with two of the best parents on the planet… cream of the crop for sure!
