It’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show week and as I look at all sorts of great pictures of gardens and displays on instagram, I’m wishing I had made the trip! You too?

We no longer need to receive and store 40' container-loads of ladders in Vancouver due to a change in our supplier's distribution system. That, combined with extremely low traffic levels after a year and a half, means that continuing to rent the space doesn't make financial sense.
