Today has been a very productive day. We are having brakes put in my husband's van, as he has been driving with only the emergency brake for a month now (he didn't want to spend the money), we got high definition on our cable account, and I made contact with Mary Umstead of Notions Marketing. She is a doll - very helpful, making it very easy for me as a new retailer. In this age of poor service being the norm, Mary is very refreshing.
I am getting closer to having a physical address. Right now it is a matter of negotiation. I found the store I want, and I am absolutely champing at the bit to get in there and start painting and organizing. Mind you, I do not enjoy painting. I used to, before I was a landlord and had to paint every apartment between every tenant. And then there was the day a half gallon of white latex paint and I fell off a ladder onto a hardwood floor. That was a good time, let me tell you. I had absolutely nothing with me to clean up all that paint, and I watched as a good part of it ran down the heat register in the floor. Doesn't everyone have white painted heat ducts? It does add a touch of class to an apartment....and to the landlord (me) who was covered in white paint from the butt down. I actually took my jeans off, walked outside and drove home in my unmentionables. Making sure to do the speed limit and come to a full stop as required, of course.
Anyhow, I am getting closer to knowing what I am going to order and where. Stay tune, and please knit responsibly.
