Saturday, I had Dick and Carolyn Taylor (loyal customers) come by to see me.... they had some news. Last week they put their house up for sale here went to Virginia Beach, where Dick's sons live and bought themselves a house all in a week. They came back home and called the movers and they will be off towards the end of March. They have to be back there to close on the 25th of March so they say they will swing in to see me then. I will miss them. Like many of my customers, I have made a connection with them. They seem like family to me, I care what happens to them. This is a good move for them, but for me I will have fond memories. Thank goodness for those memories and for emails that will keep us close.
Today, is Presidents day, the store has been busy, but we seem to have a slight lul in the afternoon. I thought I would take that time to write to you. 25% off storewide* with only two exceptions. If you have time, stop by and see what is new. Enjoy a jaunt through the store, and sample some fudge. Most important....... Enjoy yourself

Wow... Two days in a row. I must be on a roll lol. I wanted you to get a look at these wonderful new purses that we have at Silkweeds. They are made locally. Purse-analities by Denise is the name of the company and I am lucky enough to have an inside track. They are an outlet for some extra energy and she does a fanatastic job on them. If you get time come on in and check them out.

Well it has been about two months since I have posted a blog. Like many other store owners I have to sit and ponder sometimes, I guess I have been stuck there pondering alot lately.
As you all know the economy in such disarray doesn't help small businesses at all. I am not trying to complain, I just simply sit and wonder, what might I be doing wrong, what else could I try, what the next sale should or shouldn't be. I just seem to sit an ponder.
On a lighter note, if you haven't been to the store lately, It looks good in here. We have spring flowers, some new angels, mermaids in the window and a new display for house numbers, along with some new dishes in the kitchen and some beautiful new linens. Hope you will stop in soon and have a look around.
Here is a one of a kind necklace done by Glass Orchids. We do carry a line of jewelry from her. She has some very unique things made from dichroic glass.
Well I just looked down and realized it is time for me to open the shop so I guess I will have to finish this later. Have a great day and remember that "It's Always Worth the Trip @ Silkweeds"
