Things Change, But They Stay the Same....

The one thing I like to credit myself with is the ability
to recognize when things aren't right.
 
As I begin my ninth year in my freestanding building Downtown Arlington,
I change my strategy once again....
 
At the beginning of the year I decided to have a third Friday and Saturday
Showcase Event and have my Shoppe at Canton the end of each month.
It sounded like it would be much, MUCH easier for me....right?  Just being open two days a month...
well, just how easy would that be!
 
Well, No...no, it wasn't.
 
The job of rearranging the store each month, while bringing in
fresh merchandise was overwhelming.....it's just me, you know.
 
The concept was a wonderful one.
My customers caught on right away.
It was everything I needed it to be....
BUT, it turned out to be five times more work than simply being open
each week for normal business.
 
 


That's why beginning this week I am now open
each Thursday through Saturday for regular business.
Novel concept, right...LOL
 
I can already tell you my Shoppe kitties are much
MUCH happier with this decision.
They didn't get to see near as much of me or YOU to
meet their emotional needs....

 and both Marly...(top) and
Baby (bottom) are very needy.
 
Yep, they are.
 
 
I have spent the last week putting the store back together
with some things I had removed thinking I didn't want to
sell them anymore.
Maybe not as much as I once had,
but more than I was offering during the
monthly Showcase Events.
 
 
It feels good following my heart and not
what I THINK will work.
 
 
Cause you know what they say....
if your heart's not in it then it's just not much fun.
 
 
and
I'm ready to have some fun again...
 
Thanks for stopping by today,
You know I love it when you come.
