We did it. We really, really did it. In just three weeks we rallied, created, moved and sweat...and then sweat some more. Bottom line is we had a fabulous first weekend at Chartreuse and Co. The sale was a huge success and fun to boot.
I love chatting with my potential clients. My kids were not there to ask why I would talk to someone I do not even know (a common shopping trip complaint!) Meeting my com padres who love to look and see all the "eye candy" of home furnishings. I have missed, on some level, the buzz of retail days...everyone looking for "the find". I will miss most of our July sale but have managed to create a few original paintings to add to the mix of loads of new goodies.
So off to enjoy Maine for several weeks. I decided to leave the old paint brushes at home. I think I will create in new ways...and maybe with a cold one in hand!
