After a week (or more) of lots of behind the scenes machinations, this blog is finally sucessfully tied to our new web store. There are apparently some photos that have yet to be reinstalled, but Lisa is going to take care of that soon. In the meantime, I'm just thrilled to be back in touch. It's been a long couple of weeks.
This will be a bit of a cross post, as I'll be doing a mailing today also...but I want to thank all of you who've hung with us through this transition...and to those of you who've visited our new on-line store. We've had a great first week and I'm proud to announce that we've already had our first repeat customer. We're excited and looking forward to watching this new business grow and getting to know more of you than we might otherwise not have met here in Arroyo Seco.
Also I'll be announcing that I've already decided to restructure our shipping costs on the web store. From here on, all orders will be $5.95 no matter how much you buy. We were trying to understand the volume of fibers (easily squishable, although we'd rather not) and the flat rate priority mail boxes (nicer for shipping than Tyvek bags in many cases), but it's just too hard to ask you to pay more than one flat rate. I am not willing to compromise and use first class or (worse) parcel post...when I order on line, I want my stuff yesterday and get bummed out if it takes more than a few days to get here...
For a final treat (well, to some of us, anyway)...Bob got his hair done this week and when I picked him up, I took along his hat (generously sent to him by his pal Margo Nickel, milliner extraordinare).
When I arrived, he was already sporting his bandana neck kerchief, and within moments the paparazzi's cameras were flashing wildly. His humor was only good for a few shots, though, and after refusing autographs, we packed it up and came home. Here he is...handsome dude!
