Happy Wednesday everyone. Wow! We've had a busy and hectic couple of weeks. Thanks for being patient with us last week while the store was operating on shorter hours. A huge, "Thank you," to Liesl for opening the store each day until Mary could get back and to those of you who volunteered to help. We really appreciate it.
Things are just about back to normal. We almost have all the Christmas decorations packed away. Valentine and Spring products have been arriving daily and the store is beginning to make that transition from Winter and Christmas to the soft colors of Spring.
We're busy planning our Spring Workshop (you can find those details HERE) and a few other classes. We are also working on our 10 YEAR Anniversary Event. I can't believe it's been 10 YEARS!!!! We officially opened in February, 10 years ago. We're planning a big celebration in April. We'll let you know as soon as we have all the details.
In the meantime, we thought we'd share some links and videos showcasing the fun products we purchased at the CHA Show. Many of these products are shipping now, while others are shipping in February and March. Shipping delays may occur as several companies have experienced 6 - 8 week delays due to the labor dispute with the Longshore workers in Long Beach.
We tried to narrow the list down to our top 10, but we couldn't do it. So, here's our top 13!
