My business consultants got me some help with marketing my shop better in the sense of window presentation and ways of tying the outside in with the inside. So Mr. Marketing-Dude came by this morning to check things out and make some suggestions about what can be done to make everything look more polished. He had some interesting ideas and I will see what he suggests in a few days and what kind of costs I am looking at. For one thing he wants to do some window plotting. He was also talking about doing some painting in the shop itself. He asked if I am artsy at all. Ehhh, not sure.
Aside from that... I have had a few slowish days, but this evening it suddenly picked up in the last half hour and it was fun chatting with people and making some sales.
I am beginning to get more repeat customers. My redhead fan comes in pretty much daily. Today 2 Irish guys that have always come in singly were in together and it was a bit surreal to see them together. Then there is the cute Ireland fan, so boyish and sweet, teehee. Oh, I had my first Kiwi today, so fun! And a Mexican with long hair.
Then this crazy woman with huge dogs came in... like huge! They used my bathroom. All of them. And the woman had on shiny shoes. I admit it, I was a bit jealous. Something so familiar about her ;)
As my Jedi-friend asked for more pictures, I have a few to offer up here: This is my newly furnished basement. Dr. Dude put my shelves up over the weekend -- so organized and emptying quickly!
