Business at Leola's

I think I've decided to put wood floors in my hearth room and hallway. Eventually I'll do the bedrooms too but I'll save my money & do one bedroom at a time. We've lived here for 25 years & some of the carpet was already in the house so it's time. I'm so excited! Maybe they'll be done by Easter.

Went to Leola's today to check things out & I couldn't believe how bare my space looks. I have to get to work. We've been very busy the last couple of weeks & the merchandise is rolling out. People are starting to travel to Branson again plus we have lots of good customers that just keep coming back (bless their hearts). Now we're getting a new tearoom next door & that will certainly be good for business. It's called the Lemondrop Tearoom & it opens tomorrow. It will be so nice to have someplace for people to eat besides Lamberts. We have Spring Creek Tearoom in downtown Ozark but it's always packed & some people don't have time to wait.

Tomorrow, Linda, Judy & myself are taking a little buying trip. Hopefully, we'll find a few things. I have to pick up ivy for the shop. I sell fresh ivy & I'm completely out so I'm on the road.

We'll see what happens. Later.

Oh Boy.....a new tearoom! Sounds grand! I'm sorry I haven't been down in awhile, but will certainly try this weekend. Can't wait to seem results of your buying trip!
