Thankful, Grateful, and Blessed are words we see throughout autumn, beckoning us to stop and ponder all the good things in our lives. There's something about this time of year--cooler temps and falling leaves that brings thankfulness to my heart! (I'm sorry to all of you who love the 90 degree days!)
As October is around the corner, we find another thing to be thankful for--YOU!! We're celebrating our 3rd year in Berry Hill/Nashville, and we could not be more thankful. It's because you, our dear faithful customer, that we’re here.
It was October 2018 that Rachel, Michelle, and I set up shop here, full of high hopes-- that our customers would drive here to see us and looking forward to meeting new friends. And oh, what a blessing it has been! I forgot to mention our unsung hero Jay, Rachel's husband, who is our electrician, IT guy, and all things good;
Fast forward to this year--we now have Alexi, Natasha, and Brooke on our team; oh, and we have Rascal, the store mascot!
What a ride it's been since 2018. As we settled in our new location, I was concerned that I wouldn't know anyone from this side of town, since I live in Hendersonville. Since my desire is to know everyone’s name and things you like, I was worried I couldn't do it! I’ve been overwhelmed by all the kind, precious customers we have. I feel like we're friends now, and it makes my heart happy!
Because of you, not only did we survive 2020, but we thrived! I remember Rachel saying, "if our customers can drive from all over to shop with us, I can drive to see them while we’re closed." So for the six weeks of shutdown, Rachel supplied customers with paint by number, puzzles, pillows (we all need them!) and lots of great home decor, putting 5,000 miles on her car! (She hates me bragging about her, but I'm so proud of her!) I had customers last week tell me how Rachel was their puzzle supplier during the 2020 Shut Down!
As we look forward to this next year with you, our hearts of full of hope & excitement for wonderful things to come. We look forward to sharing life with you, our friends, shopping with you, and all the laughter we know this year will bring.
So, to help us celebrate our 3rd Anniversary, we would like to say "Thank You!" for supporting us, shopping local, and cheering us on with 2 special days of shopping in the store. Friday & Saturday, October 1st & 2nd, we'll be celebrating with cookies, tasty treats, and a free tote with purchase (while supplies last.)
We can't wait to see you and say "thank you for all your kindness!"
Until next time, let's celebrate~
