I got to work early thinking there would be a mess to tidy up. Not at all. No line either. But within minutes of the store’s opening, it was jammed with customers. That was very encouraging. In our store, everything is one of a kind.
While I was uploading pictures to the Facebook page, I noticed a red basket of pinecones. If I wanted it, I had to buy it now….even if it wasn’t thanksgiving yet. So I bought it.
By the time I headed home, the store was looking very empty though still jammed with shoppers. One man had bought all the Waterford Crystal yet left his expensive glasses and case behind. The day was filled with stories like these.
There aren’t a lot of holiday books this year. Four large boxes compressed into just a few shelves. Still, I noticed when I left the books looked as if they were stirred. I will stop by today and straighten them out. No stirred books for us.
