Today is the first Saturday that I didn't have to go into the store and it was a very different feeling. Our hibernation spot is small however it will work for online sales and an occasional popup. Once we got up the dressing room we realized there would be no room for crafting in this space. It did feel nice to finally give my house a cleaning after the holiday craziness. Missing the store though makes it hard. Not seeing the customers. Not interacting with the vendors. It is going to be a long winter!
In order to make room I researched different ways to move some inventory. This week we posted ten items and going to try a silent auction format that I found out there. Hoping this will give us some room so we can start moving around a little more.
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
