A Time For Thanks
This Christmas season has left me completely exhausted. It was slow to start, and at times it scared me, I kept wondering when the crowds were coming to shop. I had ordered too many gift items and the most beautiful Christmas ornaments. I spent Thanksgiving at the store pricing so much merchandise and re-arranging the store so it would be ready for “Black Friday”. Black Friday on third Avenue turned out to be a bomb. It left me anxious and full of worry as to what kind of Holiday I was to expect.
It picked up very slowly, but it picked up. Our regular customers and a ton of new faces came strolling through the door to my most coveted Christmas wonderland. I wish I had pictures, but once again I lost the charger to my camera and there are no pictures of our “Saints and Angels” themed window. I lose things when I become extremely tired, which seems to be all the time lately. It feels like I just gave birth again, this time to a store.
I re-arranged the store once again to accomodate our “super sale” merchandise. Clothing is marked 30%-50% off. Christmas items are 50% off. There are some great pieces on sale, be sure to stop in and check it out.
I want to thank my Lolette’s for working so hard, Jai, Suzan and Kim. I could not do this with out your help. My beautiful family that has sacrificed so much to help me in everything. I’m sorry our Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve 2009 will be remembered as Holidays spent at Lola’s. My sweet Valentina, thank you for helping mommy after school and being a great promoter of the store. Soon we will be on a nice retreat together. Gerard my love, thank you for being there every single day. To all my customers new and old, thank you so much for shopping at Lola’s and appreciating all the merchandise that was ordered for you. There would be no Lola’s with out you. Last but not least, Thank you GOD and the mighty Universe for giving me the strength everyday to continue on this retail journey.
