It's a beautiful sunny fall Saturday and I'm off for the first time since maybe taking over this business in January. It's kind of hard to stay away from the shop but I have my ace sales women on the job so I'm doing the next best thing. I started adding some holiday merch to our website and found myself deep in our blog pages. There are more than 80 of them dating back to 2009 when Joan started them. It's a tragedy for some of these to be buried deep in cyberspace. It's like going through your grandmother's hope chest (this is not to say Joan is like a grandmother, not at all). It'll take me days to go through them all but here's a start on some of my favorites.
