There are two Fridays this week…today and two days from now. Today is a book day, and the actual Friday is a sale day…”Gobble Up The Savings.” 25% off everything. I will save money by working in the back. Probably lots of work, actually. When folks come to our sales, they usually bring bags of donations with them.
“Oh, it’s been in the back of my car just waiting until I could get in,” one lady always says. Our dear customers clean out their garage, their closets, their Holiday stuff, and happily leave it at the donation door before they shop. That really will keep me busy and out of trouble.
Tomorrow we eat out. The decision has been made.
Then sometime this coming weekend, all our holiday décor comes downstairs and gets sorted. We don’t have tons of the cute stuff (like the stuff all over the shop), but we do have a massive number of ornament boxes. Big ones boxes, filled with red and blue mostly. Far more of these than we can put on our little tree. I, who can’t remember friend’s names, can remember each ornament every year.
I pared the collection a few years ago, and it’s time to do it again.
