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.
