The moving is almost over and the store is starting to take shape. Here area few images.
We managed to hang the very heavy hand carved mirror that has been a part of Armadilla since the beginning in Tempe. Quite an undertaking but we did it! Below the wall mirror is one of our treasured hand carved armadilla benches.
Who made these awesome fixtures? The late, great Michael Mealey who lived in the Camp Verde area. His brother Mark made several of the table and wall fixtures still in use today.
Below is a view inside store showing a display of cranberry candles and the placement of our vintage 1916 grand piano.
This is a view to the right as you come in to the store. Hanging from above, safely, is the welcome to the store sign.

The “keynote” speaker, as it were, is the fragrance you identify first. This is the “top note”. Next comes the middle layer, often called the “heart” note. These are subtle, complimentary and mellow. Finally comes the “base note” earthy, warm fragrances that complete the overall aroma and deliver the lingering effects of the fragrance.
