I DID IT !!

22/12/10
Quietly, at 9.30 this morning I snuck out the blackboards (Still without their hangers Lyn), hung up the twirlies and left the door open....

THANK YOU SO MUCH to all the well wishers, emailers and phoners and those who dropped by.  Your support is so very much appreciated.

THANK YOU SO MUCH to the more than 30 talented crafts people who have allowed me to represent them and stock such an eclectic and stunning array of Tasmanian Handmade to tempt my customers.

THANK YOU SO MUCH to the customers who came in today and so many of you bought something!! 

It was great and I look forward to making this little space a must stop and shop. ... Big hugs to you all!

....now if only the TV would work and the washing machine was connected....I'd better go and unpack some more boxes and have a glass of red!
