Crazy wonderful! Record setting heat and record setting sales don't often collide in the same sentence, but they sure did for us this show!
This First Monday was a whirlwind and in no way the "sleeper" show that is typical for August. I keep thinking at some point the growth of the business will plateau, but every month is always better, significantly better, than the year before. You just continue to blow us away with your support and I am eternally grateful for it.
Now the real fun, and work, begins. Those of you that have shopped with us over the years know exactly what time it is....
It's time for us to rebuild the Shoppe for our annual Fall Serendipity Market!
We have so much new Fall inventory waiting for its appointment in the Shoppe that it's positively mind boggling! So much so in fact, that I get an adrenaline rush just thinking about where we're going to put everything. :-))
But, that's okay....
This is where the real fun begins because there's nothing in this business I enjoy more than building the bones of my Shoppe.....I just love it! And, aside from physical help with furniture moving, it's something I've always done alone.
So, for the first couple weeks it will be just me and a couple strong guys as we build the bones, hang the lights, place all the furniture, and set the stage for the entire 5500 square foot Shoppe.
Which means I will be a busy bee over the coming month, and even busier in September when we roll into the the Farmhouse projects! Can you hear my heart beating faster? I can't wait for that too!
Excitement is lurking around every corner! :-))
During the crazy month ahead my presence online will be scarce, but rest assured I will be thinking about you the entire time. After all, you are the reason we do this!
I also have some posts planned that include more before photos of The Farmhouse on Main, and weekly posts for the new blog segment, Farmhouse Friday! So, I will be popping in for quick visits.
Meanwhile, please remember me this month during the craziness and hoopla, send me energetic thoughts of chocolate and caffeine!
Now, bring on the wonderful chaos of Shoppe building that is such a large part of my life and brings me so much joy!
