Spring Fluffing

So today I am tired. I was at the store late (early..my husband says I got home at 4 am!!) I have been looking at this store for some time now and wanted to do some major changing and rearranging. Well, the other day three pieces of furniture went out the door so it seemed like a good time to start. (plus I know that Elaine will be working today so I can sleep in..ha!!)

What a mess that job was!! Inventory gets pulled out of cupboards, piled over there, tables moved, an old window attached to a cabinet to give it a new look and then all those piles of merchandise rearranged, perfectly, in a new spot. I can't leave until the bathroom is cleaned!!!

Decided to put wall clocks on sale as well as the remaining Easter inventory and our Tea Forte product line. I need to go get an email out to everyone about that after I finish here. Spring break is not my favorite time as it affects sales in the store-noticeably!!! With boxes coming in with our new lines--I need to figure out how to pay for them!!! I love this job!!!!

Take care,
Cheri

How many times have I sworn to be more diligent about updating this blog?? Life just gets"in the way" sometimes and recently it has thrown some pretty pleasant surprises my way.
We are so ready for Spring and good goods is gearing up in a big way. The jasmine topiarys are blooming and smell heavenly which makes us long for winter to be gone for this year.
As you know, I am constantly looking for that special something that other shops DON'T have and lately have found merchandise with a much "cleaner" look than we've had before. Look for this in the coming months along with new French apothecary style candles ( in "Green Green Grass and Fresh Air), great new book titles and unique touches to freshen up your home and garden.
Hope you stop in soon to be inspired!!

Best, Cheri
