Counting Down

It's hard to believe that just six months ago we were sweating our fannies off painting the walls, cleaning and moving in furniture to set up our little shop.

Now, here we are counting down the days until we close the doors and move on to the next chapter in our little business.

As I watch merchandise slowly dwindle down when each artist comes in to claim their products, it strikes me as a bit sad that this little dream is coming to an end.  But then I think about all that is ahead of us, and the excitement begins to build!

Once we close and lock the doors on March 30, we will be free from being tied to a schedule and making sure that all of the hours are covered.  We'll no longer have to worry about things like the DSL bill and the insurance payment.  Our time will be spent doing that which we love best:  Creating beautiful, useful, fun things and selling them to people who appreciate them.

We are so happy to have had this part of the adventure, if only to say "we did it!' We had dreamed for a long time of having a shop of our own and experiencing the joys and frustrations of full-on retail have been a great learning experience.

Now it's time to move forward, and see just what lies around the next bend.  Dip that paddle in the water, let's go!
