Conflict, when handled correctly, strengthens.
Benjamin Watson

Last weekend was a whirl wind.   It was both a blessing and a deep ache to have so many people come in. I loved seeing everyone. I really did. My problem is not enough time to talk with people. I had no idea it would be as difficult as it is to see people and not have time to catch up. It never rains but it pours. I know I need to be just grateful that so many customers came. I am fortunate and unfortunate that they were there to shop not and not chat with me. As always, the conflict of wanting to talk and wanting to let people shop was there stronger than ever.

Seeing them go to good homes and all the happy faces as they carry home their treasures, priceless (as the commercial goes). A lot went out the door last weekend, yet it doesn’t even look like there are any holes in the displays. Ok maybe a few. I did bring three more boxes to restock, as well as did a little restocking on Sunday. So, come down and see, still lots to choose from. The prices are incredible. I am guessing this weekend I will have more time to chat.

I would like to mention that we had a little problem with our new Square payment system last weekend. A few transactions didn’t go through, mostly Saturday morning. We know the transactions, (or the exact amount,)  just not the names of the people who didn’t pay.  They actually  think they did  pay, because the square got switched to cash, only they gave us a card. So do me a favour and either phone and we will tell you the amount and approximate time or check your visa (or whichever card) bill and see if your transaction went through.

The sale continues two more weekends:
