LTD 7 was born of a dream, however not on such a grand scale; in fact on a MUCH smaller scale, but we did achieve a milestone this week when we opened our second store. We lovingly refer to it as LTD7.2. Have you been inside yet? You might want to take a look and be sure to let me know what you think.
