What a busy couple of weeks we've had but the hard work and long hours have been worth it. Open house has been a huge success and we're hoping it's a precursor to a fantastic holiday season.
We started decorating on Monday morning and a few finished just before we opened the doors at 5:00 Thursday evening. The crowd was unbelievable and for a good part of the evening we had a long line wrapping through the store as Kelli and I wrote tickets and several of the other girls pulled tickets, wrapped and helped customers. Gratefully, people were very patient with us.
Now it's time to get busy and re-stock......the fun never ends!!!! What keeps us all working through the exhaustion is that we all love what we do.
We're preparing for a bit of winter weather in the Ozarks but it's November, so inevitable. Maybe I'll just light a fire, put on some soup and get some work done.
