For Friday's Sake success. To every single person who came out for our first Friday night shopping extravaganza and music, thank you. It was such a relief to not drink alone listening to music with empty chairs. That makes for very awkward times. One customer melted my heart when she shared she had shopped at FGS as a little girl and DREADED coming here. "It was soooo boring." Now, she comes with her darling daughter and is in absolute love with shopping for plants, seeing the goats and chickens, and treating her daughter to playtime and Sunset Slush. She also insisted we should have nights like this EVERY Friday night and I said I would have to take that to the top, and it might take some convincing. Maybe if you're reading this and you attended Friday night, you could flood our inbox. Help a girl out!!!
One morning as I skipped in to work sprinkling flower petals, I was abruptly met at the door by AmberLeigh. I stopped for a moment looking for the fire. It made me chuckle because she immediately asked, "Have you seen the Angel Soft toilet paper?" It wasn't just a question of have you seen any toilet paper. It was very, very specific. It was Angel Soft.
I laughed and explained that yes, I did indeed see the Angel Soft toilet paper and I had put it away.
"Who is asking?" I inquired.
"Josh. Josh ordered it, and he hasn't seen it come in."
Remember Josh from my previous story? He is the smooth talking, calming voice on the other end of the phone that takes calls at the Garden Center and most often returns your calls. And yes, we love him and no, he doesn't read stories to help you fall asleep because I asked.
Josh was fretting and AmberLeigh was hunting because she is an Enneagram 2: The Helper. She found striped toilet paper and little flower prints (wink) on toilet paper, but she did not find the Angel Soft.
Still chuckling, I replied, "I am pretty sure I put some upstairs in the bathroom and in the upstairs rental space."
Why? Because it is very important to provide our rental space guests Angel Soft, as well as our staff who like privacy.
Running upstairs, she found the Angel Soft. She called Josh and minutes later, he arrived for the pick up. I couldn't help but grab this picture for you to confirm that yes, there was a hunt for Angel Soft toilet paper. Two, Josh does exist, and three, this toilet paper was apparently very important to very important people. (And I thought people could be snobby toward certain plants and flowers. I think we have TP snobs to deal with too!) But all's right with the world now. The staff is happy with their Angel Soft, the customers who pop in to use the bathroom while shopping should be happy with their Angel Soft, and because of this, I may have to alter my future purchase and check this out. It's all the new rave.
Do you know what else is the new rave? You guessed it. Plants. Green ones, blooming ones, tall ones, short ones, sun-loving, shade-loving, house-loving plants. We have you covered in all the areas. We're just awesome like that. Now get your butt here! Baaaahaaaahaha!
