Last night I read through some of this past weeks posts, and boy, do I need to BE the rainbow. Was I having a pity party or what? Sheesh! I hope I didn't depress you all too much. Sorry 'bout all that.
Mr. Moose is doing fine now, thanks, no cough for 72 hours and counting.
Saturday I had a good day down at my shop for my final full (4.5 hour) day. Next Saturday I will just go down for about an hour or so. I will remove a few things that I want for my home and visit with my neighbor shopkeep that wants to take over my spot (her shop is in my old space and she wants the bigger one so she can stay inside the shop instead of sitting outside) until her lease ends in October.
It's going to work out nicely, since she wants to keep many of my pieces on consignment while using them to house her items for sale (she sells Baby items)
I checked yesterday and I can get a nice spot at the Antique and Art Mall downtown, which is where I was originally going a year ago...funny how this turned out. I will simply move my merchandise from the shop in the mall to my new booth downtown. I am going to put a deposit on the booth space this Saturday. I will even move my cute sign and my mailbox to hold fliers and such. You know, I am not the first woman to give up a brick and mortar shop space and try something different. Now that the decision has been made and the plan is in motion, I am actually getting pretty excited about it!
It's all about having faith and looking for that silver lining. It's always there, even when things seem the worst. I don't know why I ever wasted a minute worrying about what my next move was going to be. Everything is working out just fine, and I should not have wasted one single minute of my life fretting about it. One of these days I am going to learn this!
