The trick, though, is giving yourself time to actually enjoy all your hard work before getting itchy feet and moving on to the next project (something I’ve yet to master myself). One thing that could certainly help you enjoy a newly renovated space is our spring/summer collection for Farmers, which has just hit the stores.
