It was a cold, damp, bone-chilling day at Sisters' the other day when I went up to deliver more soaps and stuff. I emailed Barb to tell her I was in a rearranging mood and the timing was perfect for her too, as someone finally picked up the heavy Victorian sofa, so a huge space was emptied...well, all of you in the biz know what that means...THE DOMINO EFFECT...
This means that it's time to redo a room, as everything no longer fits where it sits because of the gaping hole in the middle of the room...PLUS...it's time to sweep...argh! But as you well know, this is the uplift every shop needs on a regular time-frame.
I too was busy in the upstairs at Sisters', moving in new pieces and rearranging the old...what a blast and sure it's alotta work, but don't you get in those modes at your own home where you are just sick of the status quot...thought so!
As I was busy dragging stuff around, I could hear Barb and Elaine downstairs, dragging and groaning and sweeping...a well-oiled machine, as the four of us squeezed through the store, a fool on each corner of a butcher block, removing it to a man's truck outside...and who needs aerobics you ask??? And for those of you who've been lucky enough to have been to Sisters', know how easy that chore is...we have a rule...don't move it till ya bump into it!
Have I mentioned that we love our job...this is what makes us tick, a piece moving out the door and new stuff coming in. That's why every time you come up, there is something different...OK...maybe an addiction has something to do with it...but WOW, it's a fun one!
