This Week at the Shop! November 19, 2020
It’s Taco Thursday, here and I thought I’d take a minute to let you know what’s up, at the shop! So are you ready? Let’s go!
It’s five weeks and one day until Christmas. I could have left that morsel of information out, I can hear you say! Why don’t we back up a bit and just enjoy Thanksgiving!
Are you the master of the turkey, this year? If so, I found this informative graphic online and thought you’d find it helpful. Not really? Well, I’m in charge of a giant Caesar salad! Impressive, eh? You can tell that my older sister has limited confidence in my culinary abilities. How can you possibly screw up a Caesar salad!
Any who, back at the shop, dear Darlene unpacked our Fusion paint order today. Always a cherished assignment, we end up with more “packing peanuts” than we know what to do with! Even though these are biodegradable, they need to go somewhere! Thankfully, we’re 99.765% fully stocked, now that Fusion has recovered from the huge demand Covid put on the company. The only thing missing from stock are the little testers. They’re slowly making a comeback. 🙂
I don’t have a picture to share, but we had added a new paint brush line to our inventory. The Staalmeester brushes are amazing, but they come from Europe, on a big, slow boat. Availability this year, has had some glitches. Secondly, I wanted to stock an American made brush that first time painters could justify, for less than $10! Next time you’re in, be sure to check out our new Zibra brushes! I took one on a test drive yesterday and was impressed!
Speaking of European, I scored some beautiful antique dough bowls this week. Just one of my favorite things!
Old European pots, troughs and stools joined the beautiful dough bowls. I moved Jacque, the stuffed French rabbit, nearby. He’s been with me over a year, after my last trip to Provence. He’s very old and sweet and I thought he could use some French company! They probably talk when we leave at night!
This week, we’ve also re-stocked on our toddler books. There’s a new Christmas book that’s pretty sweet!
Satin pillow cases were restocked…such a great gift!
Last, but not least, are Leticia’s beautiful topiaries! For the person who has everything, a fresh plant can brighten any space…even your own!
Until we meet again, don’t fret or frown. Share some love and be good to yourself!
