So we've just had our first week of being open (we open Friday to Monday) and it was a great start! Locals seem to love having a yarn shop. We've had great feedback from tourists as well. We haven't started advertising yet, so that will be our next step as well as continuing to add items and keeping the shop well stocked with hand knits which will now reflect our yarn. We've been inundated with requests for classes so that will also be high on the To Do list, but for...
Tired and happy. A great day with locals popping in as well as visitors to the area. Made some sales. Did my first ever EFTPOS transaction (at least from the vendor's side!) and had Opening Night Drinks. Online shop is progressing much faster than hoped for. Looks like a promising future.
Just opened two hours ago and already had a few people through and made our first sale. Things are looking good. Not sure how many people would open a yarn store in over 40 degree weather.
Tomorrow morning at 10am, we'll be ready for action! Come and celebrate opening day with us.
