The beginnings of a transformation.

We're so, so close. It's wild! Whitney and I can hardly believe that our dream is only days away from becoming a reality. We can't stop smiling. And we hope you can't stop smiling, either, when you come visit. You are coming to visit, right? Speaking of visiting...mark your calendars, friends:

Gus & Ruby Letterpress opening day - August 7th!

206 Market Street
Portsmouth, NH 03801
(603) 319-1717
Open daily 10AM - 6PM

A few shots of the progress:

Half-walls for the window seats.

Window seats!

Gus taking some important measurements. He's a real stickler for spatial accuracy.

Just a little inventory to enter into the POS system. No big deal, right? Gulp.

Oh, hello you pretty little chandelier! Won't you look lovely in the window?

T-minus 6 days until the Grand Opening party. T-minus 7 days until we are officially OPEN! It's going to be a long, hard, wonderful 6-days, people. Feel free to call the store at 11PM - we'll be here!

Bring it on!


  1. Yah! I am so excited for you ladies! Your labor of love is looking so beauteous already, I am drooling to see the finished space! Keep it up, a few more days to go! I am sending you good cheer and energy to make it to the finish line. Or is it just the beginning!?! So proud of you!

  2. I'm so excited for your store and can't wait til you open! I was just saying this morning, "Hmm...I wonder if Portsmouth could support a cool paper store" and then I was handed your postcard at Breaking New Grounds. Good luck getting everything ready!

  3. i love the pic of Gus, he is such a hard worker.
