We had our December sale at Gypsy Lea's last weekend. The shop looked great. Gypsy wanted to recognize Christmas, but not overdo Christmas. I think a great balance was achieved. Sales on the first Thursday of the sale were fantastic. We had our best single day ever, with people lining up before the opening. I think our customers are starting to "get" the idea of an occasional sale. We are selling one of a kind items and once they are sold we are not going to pull another dozen identical pieces from the warehouse, like they do at Macy's. It was become important for many of our customers to get there early.
I’m a guy who has somehow fallen into the shabby world. A shabby chic world of shabotaged furniture and foo foo accessories. My stuff tends to be outside of the cottage without much chic, shabby or otherwise. My things are the hogs in this world of roses. Thus the title: Hogs and Roses. (Please look at my 1st post "Why Hogs and Roses?")
I want to be Henny Youngman, when I grow up. Take my wife -- please!
I enjoyed 7 years of marital bliss (17 years of marriage). I have been divorced forever. Love my role as curmudgeon, comedian, sage and advisor.
