Wild Snowflake ::
Everyday Adventures


as most blogs go, this is the same...
my life, my thoughts, me, me, me.

I can't believe that we've been open for almost a month. We attempted to have a public grand opening on the 11th and although it was bizz-ee, it was all word of mouth since the ads didn't run when they were supposed to. I took things in my own left hand and wrote up a press release, sending it to the local papers. One of them ended up not only printing the press release in the town section as a kinda free ad (using the photos I sent as well) but also sent a reporter and photographer to do a "real" article on us. Talk about free press... people from all over are coming in and we are running out of stuff to sell!!! It seems like 9 out of 10 people are buying stuff (that doesn't count the people who have been in 3 times or more already, and we're not talking friends and family). My poor mom is having a hard time letting the stuff go but I have repeatedly explained the concept of "retail" to her.

I can't really order more stuff except from consignors because by the time it gets here, Christmas will be over and people will be expecting it to be on sale.

We've started looking at Valentine's Day items already... finally I will be able to appreciate the different holidays since we will have the stuff out for about a month per holiday.






 
Congrats go out to Lucky who, for the 2nd year in a row, is the winner of the Asbury Park Historical Society's ornament art contest. His rendering of the fountain they restored is featured on the balls which can be purchased at local Asbury Park shops (heck, if you buy one you can sign up to win tickets to see Bruce at Harry's Roadhouse).
