We had a QUEUE!!!!

We have always wondered what it would be like if we had a queue in the shop. We decided to have a sale to get rid of some really old stock ( like over 2000 mostly double sided patterned papers for only R3-00) and although we did send an sms, we have had sales before, and hoped to get rid of some of the old stock to make room for the new shipments already in the air for 2011 ( first one arriving on the 7th of January already.........) And today it happened! WE HAD A QUEUE!!!! It was so funny! I was teaching a class, and only realised what was going on in the front of the shop when we had a tea break! I just HAD to capture it!

Here is Donsie - handling the queue so cool and calm ( I would have been like a Jumping Jack, but she is so collected)!

Jennifer - without whom we would not be able to run the shop! I think all she hears at night in bed is " Jennifer, Jennifer, where is this, bring me that" She is a star and an invaluable part of our team!

This is what was happening at the back of the shop - a cardmaking class with 9 students! We embossed and had so much fun!!! A HUGE thank you to every person that was so patient today, and made the sale such a success! We need all your patronage to make the shop a creative haven and we thank you for your compliments and ideas! We truly hope we meet expectations and that we will be able to provide you with a place to express yourself creatively for many years to come!
