As most of you know I've had my shop now for almost a year! And I want to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone of you that has come from far and near to support me. When I opened the shop I was in hopes that's that it would replace (financially) one or two shows that we do throughout the year. BUT that's just not the case. While the shop has done well it's not doing good enough to fore go any of the big shows that we do. And I have to have a totally different inventory for the store than I do for the shows, that means keeping up two different styles.
In the upcoming months we are facing several medical events that will prevent me from being in the store. First of all, Craig will be having HIP replacement surgery on Nov. 6th. After that surgery comes some knee work, not sure exactly what that will be. So we are looking at 3 month window that he will be out of commission. That will mean several visits to Doctors and a couple of months of physical therapy. There is no way I can be two places at once, and I'm sure he won't be able to drive a car with his whole leg in a brace.
The only alternative I see is to close the shop. I know there are several of you still making plans to come visit me. Oct. 20th will be the last day I am open, that will be the day of the crossing festival here in town. You still have time to come visit.
I also decided that I may eventually have some sales at my house. If any of you would be interest in being on my mailing list please email me your address and I will add you.
