I couldn't agree more with Michael....the opening of the Dallas Panerai Boutique was an excellent time!
We've waited patiently for the life-size cardboard watches to come down and the doors to open up to our very own Panerai Boutique!
That was then....
This is now!
It was great to see the gang but it was a real pleasure to meet Mary Lou Connor, Olga, Marcus and the rest of the Boutique staff (and Jonesy, the super cool security guard)! They quickly made us feel right at home, and truth is, it worked. I have a feeling they'll be seeing this mug regularly!
And probably some of these as well?
The Crew and Mary Lou.....standing tallest to shortest (ugh)!
As Michael mentioned, the details around the boutique are impressive.....
>>>>> Eat your heart out, BHB & NYB.....we have a lounge area!
>>>>>>>They even had funny glass installed that reflected a funny face!!
They even had a trick floor put in that made you appear super short!
And they had watches too!
As I mentioned, the boutique staff made us feel right at home......
Uh, Eddie...the TV is behind you........
....but Emory quickly overstayed his welcome.....
Eventually we were asked to leave......I just smiled and stared at them.
It worked for a while.
And what boutique post is complete without the wall clock?
That's right BHB....we got one of those too!!
A BIG congrats to Chad, Mary Lou Connor, Marcus, Rosie and the rest of the staff at OUR new Dallas Boutique! By what I saw today, you guys are going to be plenty busy (I met two customers that were buying/considering their first Panerai!)!
And a BIG congrats to US, the Dallas Risti Crew! I gotta admit, I'm feeling pretty special having my own boutique, and all!
Thanks for checking out my post!!

The pleasure of what we enjoy is lost by wanting more ~ fortune cookie
In S. Cal. we have the "OG" Original Ganster aka Old Skol boutique plus we're so fortunate to have Chad too. All good my brother, as long as we have Panerai watches and the Risti "brother hood" we're set for life!
Just wodering if the staff are WIS and buy and love Panerai?
Or are they just really well trained salespeople, that untill 6 months ago never had heard the name Panerai before?
I suspect the last, and though NOTHING is wrong with that, it must be a fun feeling for a risti to know more about the brand, that the stores own manager
I'm stoked to see you in hog heaven in those pictures. C'mon confess, I bet between pics you were screaming like a school girl.
And hey ......... you may not be the tallest in the group photo but you definitely make up for with those guns! Geez!
Thanks for introducing your new home away from home.
