I shuffled off to Gypsy Lea's yesterday afternoon to help with set up for our July sale. It was raining and 73* when I left Flannery Bay and 25 minutes (and 18 miles) later when I got to St. Cloud it was sunny, dry and 87*. It was warm in the shop, we have an A/C system that is much more productive December than in July, Gypsy, Kris and Darlene were working away.
I spent most of the time wiring and hanging 8 new chandeliers that I bought at an auction. These are designer pieces from a defunct lighting store. They look great and are at much less than 1/2 of retail.
The shop is packed. We have so many cool things to offer our customers this time. We are just getting started. There are pieces stacked here and there, but none of the fabulous presentation that Gypsy Lea's is noted for. It is going to be wonderful, but we have a bunch of work to do before we can face our clients.
