Howdy Everyone

Sorry it’s taken so long for me to get back to everyone, been busy messing with my miniatures, it’s a tough job but someone has to do it.  Whats going on here at the store? Well, I hired a new employee, we are going to have movie nights once a month (jammies ok), every other Tuesday we will be open from 6-9 (if you wear your jammies you’ll receive 15% off your total bill.  Since it’s so dang hot out here, last I looked it was 102 and its only 11:45AM, we are going to be serving snow cones to our customers every Saturday during the summer.  And do we have some great flavors, mmmmm   mmmmmm goood!

That is the long and short of it,  I have been entering every item in the store (over 50K) and i am only on 1876 :( . Will I ever get done, don’t know.  We have upgraded to computer and bar scanner, so eventually (somewhere over the rainbow I think) it will be faster getting you checked out.  Just remembered we will be having our sidewalk sale in early August, then I get to leave for 8 days to go on a shopping spree for the store…and bring back some terrific finds. We are going to do a road trip to Ohio, going to see the largest ball of twine, big chickens and the green giant guy.  Any suggestions for along the way? Coming from AZ to Ohio, Northern Route 1st and Southern Route 2nd. I am sooooo excited i know it will be a blast!

Well that’s all for now………………………..be back soon :)

NEW MERCHANDISE COMING IN

Within the next few days we are expecting new merchandise from the show we went to in January, alot of new stuff in there from what I remember, been so long now.  I know it’s going to be like Christmas when I open those boxes (and boxes and boxes and boxes……..). Just thought you would all like to know and be the first to get a look.  Right now I am learning how to make bar codes for everything :( .  Seems to be one of the hardest things right now, because we have to key in every piece of merchandise we get in……….please understand we don’t mean to type slowly :) .  So since I have started this post we have recieved 2 shipments, in one day,  expecting another on Tuesday, O Happy Days!  Give me a couple of days to get everything entered so you can see everything. (because we peeked at the NEW merchandise and oooo it is soooooooo cute)
