If there's one thing I've learned from the pandemic, it is to accept change, be happy, and try not to be paralyzed by fear.
I have to accept that all the careful planning can prove null and void
in a moment. Try not to be too disappointed when this happens.
Hey wait, I guess it is not so different from how I've always
been. I've had my own business for more than 35 years (so forget
about "fear of the unknown") and I'm not a huge planner.
I'm more an "in the moment" sort of gal.
when Cindy Baldwin calls me and asks what I want my next Country
Register ad to say (for the next 2 MONTHS!), I'm indecisive
(paralyzed?). What will life be like this summer? (There's
that "fear" tickling my brain.) OK, let's take charge and sum up
what we've got!
Charlotte's Sew Natural is re-opening to walk-in traffic Monday June 1 (masks appreciated)
New hours are Monday - Friday 10 to 5, Saturday 10 - 4
NEW FABRIC continues to arrive - ALL THE TIME!
can be found in our NEW MODELS - which Kirsten has laboriously hung
with many trips up and down a cranky extension ladder.
We LOVE to help you find just what you want, and have lots of options!
If hours and walk-in-ability changes, we'll just have to deal with that when/if it happens!
what if we have too many people show up on Monday morning? What
if everybody gets scared by something and nobody shows up on Monday
morning? I guess we'll "roll" with it!
What if we are so busy we don't get lunch? Hey, now you're
getting personal! We need food! We are humans and get
- If you come over the lunch hour, be prepared for lighter staffing,
and possibly a longer wait time. Maybe plan to come early
afternoon, after lunch?
Meanwhile, speaking of after lunch, 1 pm to be exact, FRIDAY, TODAY!!
If you've never shopped with us
before, send us a private message with your name, phone and email, so
we can contact you after the sale for your credit card info.
At 1 pm we'll be LIVE.
If you are logged in to Facebook,
you can attempt to BUY by typing the number of the item we're selling
in the comments. The order of comments may be different on our feed
than yours, and we use the order in our feed to determine who gets the
MODA SALE FABRIC will be the featured items in today's
Facebook Live Sale.
2 yard cuts will be the "game".
There will be more than one cut on every bolt. (30+ bolts!)
we're offering a bolt with 8 yards on it. If 4 people say they
want it, that is great, they each get two yards. If one of those
4 says they want 4 yards, sorry, they only get 2 yards. But if
only 3 people say they want it, and one of those says they want 4
yards, they will get 4. So, there's a little more "strategy" to
this sale. More people will be successful!
As I've said before, we "learn" something new with every sale, so we'll see how this goes! ;)
Speaking of Cindy Baldwin, and advertising, did you know that The Country Register newspaper is available to read for FREE on-line?
You can always read the current issue digitally, from anywhere it is
published! What a great way to explore a new region & plan a
shopping trip for when we're all open again!
