There have been lots of changes going on. Yes, many of them have been right here in our house but the ones I'm going to tell you about today are changes for Molly and her business.
She opened her vintage furniture store back in the spring of this year. She had some immediate success which involved a taping for the HGTV program "Design on a Dime" with host Lee Snijders. I blogged about it here. But the program still hasn't aired and they can't seem to give her a date for it.
She had some incredibly nice items....designer furniture and decorative items....and she gave it her best shot but it just wasn't doing as well as she had hoped. But Molly is a true entrepeneur so she decided to go back to something else that she knows a LOT about, and that is books. She has a particular interest in metaphysical books and all things spiritual. So her furniture store is slowly morphing into a spiritual bookstore! She has named it Darshana and is doing quite well with it.
She is selling much more than books....candles, aromatherapy oils, gemstones, etc. All the things that you would want to find in a metaphysical/spiritual shop. I think this is much better suited to her. Furniture is such a big ticket item and not that many people buy furniture on a whim. But the books and other things are selling much better.
I've made a few ear flap hats using the wool/soy yarn and some other styles in 100% wool and Molly has put them in the shop. I'm also working on some little spirit dolls and we have some ideas for some small "treasure" boxes.
I'm also looking into having some of my artwork printed on blank cards. So that's what I've been up to, and also what Molly has been up to....she never lets things get her down for too long. That's what I love about her....she always comes back stronger than before.
And just so this is not a "naked" (no photo) entry here is a mosaic of some of my November art....
