re-communicated with venders by phone because my emails were unclear ;( Note to self: work on written communication
The flyers arrived!! and are these beautiful. Megan did a great job. Thank you Megan.
Planned and executed a huge shopping trip for store decorations. We went to: bank, library, Walmart, Dollar Tree, Aldi, Orschelns, and Price Chopper.
The photo attached is our haul. Only the library and Price Chopper were personal items. Yes, even the Aldi stop was for the store. We bought a large kitchen rubber rub for Jordan’s melt station and a set of remote control, battery powered candles for our tree.
started the morning, vacuuming the lobby. An incident with a three hole punch made the lobby look as if it had snowed.
brain stormed, brain stormed, and looked at Pinterest some more. Megan and I are trying to decide how to decorated the store tree we’ll set up for the hall of trees display. Deadline 11/21!!
Megan ordered a few strange items we couldn’t put on our shopping list for tomorrow. So I ask you, gentle reader, is this a photo of my brain after all those thoughts and storms rolled through or plastic chain that will part of our props? What will we do with plastic chain? You’ll have to drop by the Hall of Waters, Hall of Trees display and find out for yourself.
Assessed the damage a deer caused the back rear quarter panel of my vehicle. Small dent, antler scratch & a cracked back tail light.
balanced the store check register and paid a few bills.
adjusted the sales tax and payroll tax ledgers
discovered that bamboo paper towels (we purchase our from grove collaborative) do pick up more liquid than regular paper towels. “How do I know? you ask.” I moved a pop can from the design desk to help two customers and dropped it! I missed the keyboard and the mouse but created a large puddle. Thus, bamboo to the rescue.
Tracked down a customer’s watch repair. We had assisted an elderly couple with a repair of a watch brand that we don’t carry. The couple didn’t have internet so I have been following the repair process and calling them with updates.
