When we hear a great suggestion from someone we like to us it!! The former dressing room that Braun's Manufacturing and Welding (my talented brother) created for us to be used in St. Peter has found a spot in the Le Sueur store. It is going to be used as a consignment closet. People can take away the hassle of selling and meeting buyers by simply bringing their clean nice clothing to us. For a month we will display them in the "WHY NOT CLOSET". At the end of the month they collect their unsold items along with a check...or store credit. Loving that this idea was suggested to us. Hope we hear more of what the community would like.
This store was created on a whim and well we just keep moving forward with what is given to us. I stopped down to rent a smaller space at the Valley Green Square so I could store product for an online store...and well ended up signing a four month lease on our former store space. Crazy right!!! I am so excited that the vendors have decided to take a weekday afternoon that is theirs to be at the store. It allows us to be open much more and no one will get burnt out. Totally not what I was expecting would happen that is how it seems we roll. I really hope the LeSueur community welcomes us back and our small businesses are supported with sales. These people work so hard on their products and I just really want it to be worth their while. Fingers crossed this was the right move.
Today we closed the store so I can prepare for my next surgery to get use of my arm fully back. Mom & I started this store for just one month on December 2017....twenty one months letter decided to take a break so I can recover without being stressed out. Today was harder than I thought it would be. Sad to see the store being emptied. Confused on where to put everything. Working hard on building the website...while wondering if people will even visit it. Unsure if we made the right decision to close. Life is so full of uncertainties.
What started out as giggles between my mom and I while unloading for a craft fair became opening for one month which became growing friendships and a store that is possible because everyone believes in it. I have been very blessed with this and so happy I can make it possible for all of the small businesses that have joined us. Let me take you along on this journey with me. Hugs ~ Sandi
