Hello ALL! Boy, it feels lovely to be back open... there is soooooo much more work than normal. We are training customers on all of the new procedures, and we are cleaning--so much cleaning. Plus we are all personally adapting to wearing a mask for 40 plus hours a week. These are all adjustments and we are here making them and so grateful for your continued support.
Things that are happening around the shop--we continue to be in Phase 2 as a county for the time being. So the
guidelines laid out below are still in effect. We just got a bike rack from the City for the front of the shop! Yay! We are thrilled for our customers who arrive by bike. Look at this picture of Carolyn--the first person to use it!
Customers have been asking a lot about how we are doing--you all are so thoughtful and worried for us. We are still here and we have made it so far through this pandemic storm. Switching to an online platform during the shutdown was the best thing we could have done--while we lost thousands and thousands of dollars, we were still able to LITERALLY keep the lights on. Our numbers are slowly inching up once again. We are at about 60 percent of where we should be in our numbers. So, once again, I am very grateful for all of your continued support and love for us. We would not be here if it was not for you.
I can NOT believe that it is JULY... these are strange times. Continue to be patient with one another and open to learning--these are some of my daily goals. I am currently reading
City of Girls
by Elizabeth Gilbert, and boy is it a gem. I am smiling through the whole book.
Enjoy and Happy READING!
