I am so looking forward to making some positive changes in 2015! As blessed as I was with the success of 2014 (thanks to so many of you!) I have to admit it was very stressful for me and took a toll on me both mentally and physically. This year I want to do some things differently, I will share more on that as time goes on, the first of which is cutting back our OPEN hours at the shop. We know this will be an inconvenience for some but there are a few key reasons behind our decision which I would like to share with you…
1. FRESH INVENTORY…Trying to keep up with inventory that is selling 6 days a week is too much for me to handle right now! It’s a great problem to have but I would rather have a very full store I can be proud of 4 days a week then a store I have to apologize for 6 days a week.
2. VINTAGE & ANTIQUE FINDS…I want to get back to my original business statement which includes bringing you one of a kind vintage and antique finds but as our business has grown I have found less and less time to get out and do that. We will continue to carry many of our home decor and accessories lines but by cutting our hours I will have more time to get out and find the cool vintage and antique stuff we all love…it’s what our business was built on and I want to get back to it!
3. AFFORDABILITY…In our efforts to keep up with the demand for inventory I’ve found myself having to pull the trigger on things I normally wouldn’t pay as much for which drives the cost up for you! We want to keep our costs reasonable and by cutting back our hours it will relieve me of some of the pressure to fill the store so quickly and allow me to find better deals for you.
4. A DAY OF REST…Last but certainly not least is my life…I’d like to have one! All kidding aside, Sunday is the only day that I don’t seem to be inundated with calls, texts, emails, notifications, etc and the only day I truly can unplug. Don’t get me wrong, I love you all, I really do, but this girl needs a day to pull away and Sunday is going to be it! It’s a step of faith giving up a great day of revenue but I’m trusting God will provide in this, He always does.
So on that note, here are our current SHOP HOURS…
WEDNESDAY to SATURDAY
10am to 2:30pm
Tuesdays may or may not return…that decision is pending
And on another note here’s a peek of what’s new in store…
