This ranks as a contender for most exciting announcement of the year, at least for all of us here at Leaf & Limb: we have a new home!
For several years we have been searching, saving our nickels, bootstrapping, hoping, wishing, and performing ritualistic dances (ok, not that one….) in an effort to find the perfect place to become Leaf & Limb’s new home. Well, we finally found that place at 511 Nowell Road in Raleigh.
The process began over three years ago when we first saw the building. But at the time, we could not broker any sort of affordable deal. We forgot about this place until December of last year when Basil and Colin were driving by and decided to pop out for another quick walk around the property. It was love all over again.
We decided to make another push to buy the building. But this time we knew what mistakes to avoid from our previous experience, and we knew what was necessary in order to broker the deal. It required a combination of careful timing, hurdling several major obstacles, and heaps of good fortune. We had to navigate a very narrow strait.
But the stars aligned. Two weeks ago we closed the deal and now we are busy moving into our new home. We truly could not feel more blessed. It’s times like these when you know life must be inherently good.
To celebrate our purchase, and to celebrate the 4th of July, we threw a party. Below are a few pictures from our great celebration. To see more pictures, and to see pictures of the new facility, head over to the Leaf & Limb Facebook Page.
Oh, and don’t forget to come by and say hello sometime! Things are hectic now, but once we get into August life at 511 Nowell Road should be a bit more normal. See ya soon!
