Had a steady, busy week. Our foot traffic is surprisingly brisk and we are starting to draw repeat customers. I love being able to greet people by people by name. That is really the atmosphere I am looking for. It's nice to be greeted by name. Doesn't happen much anymore seemingly. the shop!
Looks like a fun, fun weekend! Falls Church City is having its annual Fall Festival/Taste of Falls Church event at Cherry Hill Park and the grounds of City Hall. Besides the normal Farmer's Market there will be restaurant tastings, local vendors and music galore.
The shop will be open from 9-4 on Saturday during the Festival so stop in if you are in the neighborhood. It is really "meet the artist" day as half a dozen of "my" artists are manning the store for me. My family is throwing their annual family BBQ and this year it is bigger than ever given Bob's health scare earlier this year (we are jsut glad he is here to cook!) and Bob's momentous birthday (he is turning the big 5-oh this year!).
As I left (uh, fled?) to the shop this morning there were already 10 in-laws at my house! Apparently the party has begun!
We have hung a LOT of new art this past week. It's neat how it gives the store a completely different look. Lots of vibrant pieces that really match the crispness of the air.
Enjoy your wekend!
