We have been in our new digs for about 7 weeks, and it has been a wild ride. We have had overwhelming support from the community, and neighboring businesses. Our “official” grand opening was a huge success with a crowd for the ribbon cutting, and great foot traffic all weekend. A shout out to Billy Hanish/Hanish Bakery for hooking us up with a great cake, and DONUTS ON SUNDAY!

Those of you who know us know that Jerry, my hubby of 38 years, passed away in August. He didn’t get to see the building completed, but I like to think he’d be proud of what we made. His spirit was definately here, looking over my shoulder during the festivities, as his photos were in the frame behind my desk..

As the Christmas season begins, I am thankful for all of you that have visited our store, read our facebook posts, had items engraved, or pictures framed. I am humbled by all the well wishes for success of our storefront, and expressions of sympathy at Jerry’s passing. I’ve now returned to my nursing job at the hospital (Icu now instead of ER), so am not always at the store. If I miss you when you come in, my apologies, but know that Michelle and Bridget will take good care of you, as they are the talent in the group.

Looking forward to a busy December and into the new year. I hope everyone scopes out our great selection of personalized giftware, ornaments, signs, crosses,..the list goes on and on. Everyone on your list would love something personalized just for them!
