Silk Thumb’s New Signs!

This week was super exciting! After 5 meetings at City Hall they finally approved my two new signs.

Our new location is pretty significant to me. My father was a mason and he built the building The Silk Thumb, LTD is currently located. As some of you know The Silk Thumb was in downtown Highland Park since the early 1980’s. I closed the store front down spring of 2014 and moved the business to Highwood. We are now located in a commercial space, versus a street level retail shop..and now by appointment only. It was one of the best decisions I ever made. Our new space is three times as big and less overhead, win win situation! Plus we are in Highwood, which is where I grew up and as I mentioned in the building my dad built in 1970. He passed away in 1979, about 6 weeks after I was born.  He had made dreams and goals. As  you can imagine, it is very special to be in his building and making him proud.
