The last two weeks…

Posted in business-a-go-go, Main at 8:09 pm by carrie

The very last day we were open up at the shop was yesterday. After 27 days without a day off, I did nothing today… it was glorious :)

It’s funny… it seems like everyone else is taking this much harder than I am. I thought I would have my major emotional breakdown yesterday and… nothing. I had one misty moment about a week ago, but it passed very quickly. I was able to scrape off the hand-painted dual logos on my windows with ease. I think it bothered Maylene more than me ;)

I have to say, I’m amazed at how this decision was made in just moments after thinking about it for over a year. I encourage any of you who have a stressful decision to do this… write about it, think about it, ask yourself about it right before you fall asleep… you may not get the answer you were seeking, and it may take months and months, but if it *hits* you like it hit me, it was clear and obvious. I’m so grateful that this transition came from a positive place… very very grateful :)

I’m very excited about moving. I’ve been doing a ton of research, tivo-ing anything that has to do with the area and having a great time telling people who want to hear about it. There have been SO MANY of you who are interested in moving to North Carolina. I’m tickled that you want my input :) I’m convinced I got at least 5 couples to move… who’s next? ;)

On to business stuff…

There are still fixtures being picked up by their new owners…

I will be open this next weekend for pickup & for those of you who may still want to shop our sale:
Friday, February 29 – 11:00 am – 7:00 pm
Saturday, March 1 – 10:00 am – 6:00 pm

I’ll be in and out of the store all week… you can also leave me a message and we can coordinate a time to meet (818-541-1115). My very last day at the store is Saturday, March 8.

Now you know everything ;)

A lot has sold, but I still have some fixtures, office furniture, a little fridge, a few xmas trees, little bits of home decor, a couple of lamps, Christmas, Easter, Halloween and other holiday decor… come check it out :)

Have a great week everyone… and thanks again for all your support!!!!! It has really helped!

    Carrie, I’m really happy for you. It sounds like you are so ready for this change, and whatever it brings with it. I hope you don’t stop blogging after the move, and I hope that you find nothing but happiness :)

    But you will never be far really. And I like that.
