The New Shop

Whew, what a few months it has been. CraZy year for us in 2018. After realizing I would need major surgery on my right foot, ankle and Achilles I decided that after all my travels were done I would schedule the surgery for early August. On 8 August I had nine procedures done and was immobile for a few weeks and then spent months in rehabilitation while running the business from home. Also a week after my surgery my best friend lost his job as a blackjack dealer and I knew I needed more help to make this business grow. I offered him a chance to follow me on the journey. We soon realized working out of a 720 foot building and part of a house that it was not feasible to grow like I wanted to. I contacted a good friend of mine and asked if he had any retail space available in his six units he owned. He said come Spring he might have an opening. Well a week later in mid October he called and said “the space is yours if you want it”. I was still recuperating but I had to take the opportunity and signed a three year lease. We moved and am still moving into a marvelous space 15 minutes from home. This move will make us so much more efficient. This gives us space for more exclusives from Fabric Flair and the genius designs from Gevork in fabrics from all counts 14 to 40. This young man changed my life. I think we came into each other’s lives when we both needed it. How I met Gevork is a long story I will tell soon.  I am excited for this next step in the journey and we are very glad that we have marvelous customers that are there for us.
