I didn't get out early enough to take the pretty, still snowing, serene shot of the neighborhood. I think most of us (and especially the ski areas) were pretty glad to see this heavy, wet gift from Mother Nature this morning. It is January after all.
I have to tell you, it was warm and dry at 5:30am when I managed to finish fluffing at the shop and unpack all of these:
Now before you go ape s*#t over how long I can spend tending to my baby...I do go home at the close of business hours, watch my favorite PBS show, take an ibuprofen and have a latte before I head back in to tend to the dirty work!! And it was well worth the time--everything looks great and the store is full again after the busy holiday season. (thank you all very much, by the way!!)
We've re-stocked, added new vendors and some exciting new merchandise. And for those of you that have been asking: yes, we've started getting out product for that biggest "Hallmark" holiday of the year!!!
I really like these "surprise boxes". Like a greeting card-only better!
And then we have some random images as I wandered around in a stupor!
I was happy about how my "necessity is the mother of invention" wall art turned out. Fun and unexpected!
Pretty, pretty embroidered pillows.
Our votives are restocked with some nice new scents.
I missed photographing several areas I wanted to show you. So I guess you'll just have to stop in and see for yourself. It is January....the retailers loneliest month!!
