Thank you everyone! We had an amazing July! I have just finished doing all the inventory, and will be sending checks out soon. But Fall is coming and I have some house keeping things that we need to address.
Fall is coming! Let's start getting ready...
Some of the items in our store are geared towards spring and summer. I would like us to start thinking about fall and get some new items into the store. Schedule a time with me or Tim to have your items brought in by Aug 29th.
Items that are not moving
There are some items in our store that we have notice are not moving. We have been moving our inventory around to see where they are best displayed in our store, but some are still not moving. I will be sending out a list of things that we would like to have removed from the store. We also have some excess inventory as well that we just don't have room for. I will be contacting those of you who have that issue to schedule a time to pick those items up.
Large Items and custom pieces
If you have larger items in the store beginning of fall would be a great time to swap out piece for something new and different! I know some of you are not able to do that, but if you are able, we should do that.
We are getting great feedback about the store. They like the variety of items, and they love having another place to shop in Elkhart Lake. People would like more Elkhart Lake inspired mementos. Keep creating!
Day that needs Coverage
On July 15th, our good friends and owners of the Chilton Pla-Mor Lanes, Gary and MariKay Mathes were on their way to Yellowstone National Park, when they were involved in a horrific accident. It took the life of MariKay and Gary was hospitalized. Gary shares our love of photography and we would borrow lenses with him as well. A benefit will be held on Sunday August 30th. We will be donating a items from the Trading Post (we will be purchasing them), as well as metal prints for the Auction.
If someone would have some time to cover the shop that would be helpful. Coverage would be needed from 12-3pm. If we are not able to find coverage, I will close the shop early at 2pm that day.
Thank you everyone! I hope your summer is going well!
