“Your sign says…”

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

.
We stopped carrying fabric a few weeks ago.
.
We averaged less than 20 yards a week in sales of fabric for over a year.  And of course the minute we get rid of it, everyone starts to ask for it.
.
Isn’t that just how it works?
.
When you are looking for a new house, all of a sudden you see all the for sale signs in yards.
.
When you are getting a new roof, you hear all the roofing commercials on tv.
.
When you become a parent you turn every time you hear “Mom…or Dad”
.
When your in-laws are coming over you finally see all the dog hair on the wood floor.
.
Anyway, we are tired of disappointing people who come in the store because our window signs say we sell fabric.  They say “your sign says fabric?”  And then we have to say we don’t carry it anymore and try to direct people to another shop.  They seem so sad and that makes us sad.
.
So, we’ve taken matters into our own hands.  We can’t get the signs permanently changed just yet so…

Duct tape…it’s good for so many things.
