A Change of Heart!!

You know, there's nothing like changing your mind......over and over again!!   While it's true that we made the decision to close our Winnie shop (and this is still in the making), we've had a slight change of heart and have decided to stay at least until the end of the year.   Several things have played in helping us make this decision:  firstly, the past show was AWESOME!!!  We were selling just about everything that was nailed down.....seriously!!  We sold things we've had for months and things we just brought in.  People were buying furniture, clothing, glassware and a little bit of everything!  It was soooooooo exciting however, I know not to base such an important decision such as closing the shop, on one good show----we've had many, many months of bad shows or not so good ones.  So, keeping the shop open on a permanent basis is still not likely.

Secondly, a good vendor friend gave me some good advise about staying through the holiday months, the months that are usually the best ones for good sales.  Made sense to me, therefore "Remade Life Emporium" will stay open at least until the end of the year.  Past that.....well, we'll see.

Part of the difficulty in closing my shop is the thought of leaving all our great customers!  There are so many customers who have become  like family to us.  We enjoy seeing them each month and sharing our lifes with them and theirs with us.  Here are a few pictures of some of the great people we have been honored to meet through our shop:

My special buddies Alex (in the back) Zach and me!!!

A great family who came to visit and bought a lamp

A sweet college girl and her equally sweet mom!!

What a cute young couple holding my shop mascot, Tulip

This couple was such fun to talk to...AND they bought the red chair!!

Well that's it for now.  We'll be at Winnie through December, pray we do well and make the right decision after that!!  We'll let you know as soon as we know!!
God Bless all and any who read this,
Pat, A Remade Life
