We began a new venture, with a leap of faith, the beginning of 2020. This is something I've dreamed of for a long time, however, I never had the opportunity to pursue. My husband and I took a trip to Galena, IL. for our first year wedding anniversary and admired the bed and breakfast that we stayed at as well as visiting and patronizing the wonderful small business on our walk through Galena.
We began dreaming again and the two of us shared and discussed the possibilities. The next afternoon we arrived home to Rockton and simultaneously looked at each other as we saw the FOR RENT sign at 101 W. Main Street. We were of course both thinking the same thing. We made a phone call to schedule a walk through and as they say, "The rest is History".
The business has taken many different forms since the beginning of the year and through much sacrifice, we made the commitment to open a small town Coffee and Decor shop. We have been living, rearranging, taking suggestions, had inspections, plumbers, electricians the last couple of months.
We were blessed to become acquainted with a local Roscoe couple who own Snowdrift Coffee, a small batch, craft coffee company specializing in private label roasting and wholesale distribution to local cafes. They agreed to supply "Deedee's Main Street Coffee" for the shop and boy it is GREAT Coffee.
We will continue to introduce our partners and different stories about our Journey.
Thanks for taking the time to tune in and we look forward to your comments and suggestions as we forge ahead.
We look forward to opening at the beginning of May, Lord Willing.
GodSpeed to all.
