a labor of love & a happy meeting!

so, the shop is coming right along. what with it being the last dash of kindergarten and a slew of custom orders~ it comes along a bit more slowly.
ashley was a super hero and painted everything! all of the parts of the shop that needed painting and that meant very tall ladders and lot of labor!
most excitingly we placed our first few wholesale orders and have been in touch with many of our consigners. it's so great talking with everyone about there work and getting to pick out our very favourites for the shop.
a great bit of luck came my way on sunday as i was working in the shop. i heard the words "well..there's jes!" it was jean {of mosey nest fame}, her aunt mariam, and daughter emily!
what a delight.
emily of ravenhill lives in faraway norway and is a lovely crafter who makes amazing matryoshka dolls which she sells at her etsy shop. she has been a great friend this past year and is my first "online" friend that i have met in person.
many hugs insued and excited chatter! i showed them around the wee shop and just loved having them all there! they just happened to be in belfast checking out the wonderful yarn and fabric shops and had thought to stop by where they thought the shop was.
what a happy coincidence!
i was sad to see them go and many more hugs were had by all.
as well as a firm handshake by aunt mariam.
all the good luck and happiness was mine that afternoon!

Hi Mosey, your new shop in Belfast sounds great. Do you have information all about it? I live in Northport, ME and have a new Etsy shop selling fabric handmade softies and paper crafts. I've been thinking of consigning. Any chance we could meet if you are still taking on any consigners?
Many best wishes, your shop sounds so exciting! Viva la Belfast!
