I just needed a Sounding Board . . .
Ok I think I am going to have to come up with a quicker baby gift that baby blankets. We have 4 women in our church now that are going to have or have just had a baby. I have completed one blanket and one baby cardigan, I am now working on another blanket and it seems to be knitting up faster that the first one, I started it yesterday and am about halfway through it. The shop has been a little busier today but I still have not had to many sales. I am going to keep my chin up though. I had to pay the rent today and they want to talk about renewing the lease, and I am wondering if I should. I have to make a decision by the middle of next month; I really do not know what I am going to do business has been so off for the past few weeks, I am wondering if it is just summer vacation or if I have not been able to overcome my location. I don’t have any in-and out parking you have to Parallel Park in front of the shop and if you don’t want to do that you have to park about a block away. I guess I need to think about that my best months were the last four months of the year and they are just around the corner. I am thinking about adding yarn to the mix of items that I sell in my shop. I carry Home accessories and gifts right now and the closest yarn shop is about 45 min away. A few people have told me that they wish I would carry yarn. I sell some of my hand knits in the shop also and people are always asking what type of yarn I use and where can they buy it. I also teach beginner-knitting classes, and I sell knitting knits for these classes, but I have yet to break into the yarn market. I am just rambling now. Sorry about that but my best friend has been out of town for the past week and she normally is my sounding board for my ideas and I just need to sound off today.
