This year has been crazy. Many of you know our shop on Union has had it's window tagged. We started for the first time not being able to put all of our products on the floor. Classes were no longer able to be offered because our space had to have room for all the extra stock. It was getting cramped in our cute little space.
Apparently, plans were already in motion for us to leave our beloved little shop. At the time, I had already committed to assistant directing a play with our local community theatre. In the middle of this, I was just glancing at places, not sure where I was heading. That is when our new place became available. I went to look and fell in love. And, just like our beloved little shop, everything starting rolling into place to get us into our new spot. We have been opened a week now and are loving it! The people have been wonderful, the neighbors have greeted us with warm welcoming. The landlords are incredible. And it is so much bigger than our other one.
So now we are in the middle of getting our new shop setup and knowing me, we will rearrange several times before we have it right. But once we get all unpacked, our hope is to get in readers and be able to do classes. There is still alot of work to be done to make this happen, but it's still exciting!
For those into numerology, our address turns into an 8. We opened the new shop 8 days after we opened the previous shop 8 years ago. Plus, it was the end of our 8th week of rehearsal for our play. Now to see where this journey leads us!
What a journey this has been. Obviously, it has been awhile since I posted because it has taken alot to run this shop. But I wouldn't change it for the world. Now I have a couple of employees which helps with trying to allocate time for other things (like actually getting caught up). But what is even more exciting is that for the first time, I have somebody who has experience in planning and graphic design. Sooo...we are having our first author book signing coming up. We are so excited here!!! This will hopefully open the avenue for doing various other events in our little shop. The opportunities are endless.
In the coming months, there will be changes to the website too. I'll be mapping it out and expect to have a plan by summer solstice.
Many of you have not seen me out front for a bit now. Just know that I'm working on getting organized so that soon, I'll be able to bring more to you. I have been missing all the great people I get to chat with. But know you are all in my heart and as soon as I get everything back together, I am planning on being out front again. Thank you all for your continued support! We have such a great community of people! May you have great blessings on your journey! I will try to be more vigilant on updating you here.
Things are changing here at The Karmic Konnection. For the good, of course. Between having readers here and scheduling a multitude of classes, we now have a reflexologist on board. New items have been put on the shelves since we have returned from a show with all kinds of goodies. I am starting this blog today. I do not know where I want the blogging to go, as I really haven't been a "blogger" before. But I know to listen to the universe and it will guide me. So, until next time, many blessings to you all!
