Waiting is not in my skill set...
We are all not so great at some things…my thing…waiting. I would rather start something with half the supplies needed than wait to start, procrastinate in any way, or miss out on an opportunity. Sometimes you just have to jump right in before testing the water, submerse yourself fully, give yourself a little bit of extra grace to falter while doing so, and feel the entire experience. This doesn’t mean that some things aren’t worth waiting for…they are…and that’s where my current skill set fails me.
Each year on March 31st, our little shop turns another year older. And I look forward to celebrating that milestone with each and every client, friend, customer, and neighbor that walk through the door. In an effort to preserve that, I have rescheduled this event a total of FIVE times…yes, F.I.V.E. In reality, the shop is crowded, the socializing is fierce and wonderful, and the lines are long with people standing end to end. The only thing that’s wrong with that is the current time in which we are living and recognizing that all of that will be impossible to do right now.
So, I have decided to kick the wait to the curb, because I am not great at that anyway, and still celebrate. The birthday bash is going virtual, and I promise it will be better than one of your kids’ classroom zoom calls. We’ll be posting specials and sales, BOGOs and Free w/Purchase, all the wonderful things you expect from year to year. The only thing you’ll miss is the in-person vibe and the snacks and refreshments. But, just know that with every order, comment, like and encouraging word from all of you celebrating with me that I am holding my coffee cup high, sending you a caffeinated cheers from afar, and reminding myself of this quote, “It’s not about going to a party. It’s life as a party.’ -DIANE VON FURSTENBERG
The party starts today with our signature tote, complimentary with a $40 purchase, while supplies last. We’ll pack your order right inside for shipping or complimentary local delivery. And as always, if you are missing something online, reach out…if it’s in stock, we’ll invoice you and get it out with the next delivery/ship date!
Stay well and…Stay…In The Moment,
