4 A Love of Learning

It’s mid-August which means school has started (or will be starting back soon) and a whole new year of learning begins!  Even if you’re no longer in school, learning is a continual process. Life would be boring if we weren’t always (or at least occasionally) learning something new ~ don’t you think?

We (Diana and I) continue to learn so many things … our favorites are what we learn about you ~ our customers and friends ~ about your lives, families, things you love and don’t love.  We hope you enjoy learning more about our family as well.  It’s a special connection to have and we appreciate that. 

Here are 4 things that we’ve learned recently:

  • We’ve learned that everyone (ok, almost everyone) likes learning about how much of our merchandise has a personal story that comes with it.  It’s always been important to us, and it feels good to see it is for others.
  • We’ve learned that there are more cat lovers than dog lovers, at least in our shop!  Come on – step up dog lovers :) 
      (from Donna the dog lover who’s allergic to cats ~ Diana and her family are cat lovers)
  • We’ve learned that we’ll never be able to stop buying lights for the shop!  This is kind of a joke, but not really.  It’s just unbelievable how many are needed to light up a space in a shop!
  • And probably our favorite… We've learned how much we love it when customers love our things as much as we do.  We love hearing people get excited over what they’ve found! 

We’ve slowly been learning what items people want - feel free to let us know too!  That was (kind of) a 5th thing learned, but 4 is our number so I’ll make it 4 ½!  :)

It’s always nice when summer comes around and you get to take a break from learning – but summer’s winding down and we’re ready for something new.  Come visit with us, we’d love to learn more about you!

Love, Donna (& Diana)
