I find that I miss blogging and reading all the blogs that I used to.  I never seem to have time to blog at home and that is where all my pictures seem to be of projects I am working on for the shop and craft shows so have nothing really to share. 

Most things I think of to blog about have to do with the shop, then I stop and think maybe not.  If I have a bad, depressing or frustrating day in the shop I really don't think I should share it. 

This town has a few interesting characters the wander in from time to time.  There is one lady that comes in every 3 or 4 months, looks at everything in the store and says how nice everything is but that I won't be able to say in business because of the bad location and then leaves, never even buying a spool of thread.  Wonder why she keeps coming back?

There are a couple of others that come in and tell me everything wrong with the shop and everything I should do differently.  A lot of it isn't even in my control as it is landlord issues and others are nice ideas if you have unlimited funding. 

Luckily 99% of my customers are nice, friendly and easy to deal with. 

Have now been in business going on close to a year.  There are so many issues, expenses, etc. that we had no clue of going in.  If we had to do it over again would we?  I really can't say for sure.  One day the answer would be yes and the next would be no depending on how the business is doing that week.

Oh, your blog sounds so sad. I wish I could help you. I know it was just one of those days but darn I wanted you to succeed, you deserve it. The store is so nice, so well stocked and the atmosphere is super. Hang in there and keep smiling.
