I have leased space at a new location and will relocate my shop in early Spring 2014. What a relief!
The new shop is in Berlin Reinickendorf not too far from my current location and is on the ground floor so I will be able to roll the mahines in instead of having them hoisted by a crane and put through the windows. I will have more space than I have now and … will be paying a lot more rent. Oh, well. So it goes. I do believe my business now has a chance to survive and I will at last be able to make plans for the future.
Thanks to everyone for their support!
