Having a store...

...a real brick and mortar... can be very time consuming, but at the same time, very rewarding. And I thought keeping a website, 2 blogs and a facebook updated was hard! Lol.. I'm not complaining though...I LOVE the shop...sometimes too much I think. It takes time and energy to keep the store fluffed and stocked with an interesting mix of uncommon finds, but that is what sets you apart from the next shop. I was at the store all day yesterday..10 hours. A long day, but a great one. We made a lot of new friends that will be returning to visit, and we also gained a couple of "fur fans".

Meet Skylos! (Greek for Dog) He kept peeking behind the check out to see what was going on back there! He would make a great little shop dog.



Napoleon was all smiles. ( His Dad is a history buff.)
An adorable Pomeranian with a Teddy cut.



I love it when people ask if they can bring there dogs in...Hey, if you don't bring them in, I will be running outside to pet them! The word on the street is that these doggies are better behaved than some children. *wink*

After closing, I was doing paperwork and decided to relax by shutting off most of the lighting except for a few chandeliers. I looked around taking it all in, and for a split second, time stood still and I forgot that I had been there for 10 hours! I guess it's true love. :)



Here's a shot of our new front window display that we did last week. We have some great items in the mix and I will be showing closeups of everything on the store blog tomorrow evening. You can check it out HERE.
