Pretty ... and pretty proud of it

Always a balance, but much more rewarding/satisfying to sell products that you personally believe in. Hope it goes really well!!

Thanks Guys, I really appreciate your support and best wishes, this really is a leap of faith and I thought that the heading of this thread was perfect as it really is going to be interesting from now on, who knows what the future holds.
Time permitting I'm hoping to contribute to this forum regularly and hope I can be of some help with any enquiries.
Hopefully this isn't breaking any forum rules but I've just posted some pictures over on the Naim forum of the setting up of HiFi lounge if anyone is interested.
HiFi Lounge (Bedfordshire)
Specialists in the brands that we are passionate about!
Just out of interest, has an alarm system been installed yet or not?

Great thread OOI how many wives do you have?
HiFi / A/V / Bedroom
Is that an Eames chair in your headphone room? Been trying to convince Mrs C....
I love the Hifi Racks, not cheap but look better than anything on the market!
Would be interested to know what system you have at home Paul considering you will probably listen to hifi all day long - my idea of the ultimate job - seeing people listen to hifi and be blown away!

Just headed over to the Naim site, I must say the place looks absolutely fabulous, credit to you, your wife and whoever.
Just the sight of the Naim supplier delivering white boxes excites me!
I would love a Naim system........ Maybe one day!
A genuine (authorised) Eames lounge chair has a matching Ottoman with four legs/spokes. (The chair itself has five legs).
The Ottoman in the Hi-fi Lounge pic appears to have five legs.
Good luck with the venture.Beautiful surroundings/location. Not that far away in Leighton Buzzard and I'd like to hear the "higher end" and see if my ears can tell the difference.Not sure I can make the opening,though I'd like to,but I will visit.
Thanks again guys
Yes, had a police monitored alarm system fitted + security gates on every window, it was certainly a rather large bill that I hadn't really budgeted for, the trouble being that as an old granary it has got lots of small windows and doors, 14 in total, that all needed securing and had to be done as sympathetically as possible not to detract from the building and to keep the landlord happy, you really don't think of these things initially when you have the bright idea of opening a hifi shop.
I have to admit that is an Eames replica we had to cap the budget somewhere unfortunately, still pretty comfortable though, especially when the lights are out and you kick back with a pair of cans on.

I don't blame you. The real deal is £5K. (The stool on it's own is £1500.)
Still, if you can flog all that stock...
