I have to say, we have had a crazy week here at Loopy Central. We’ve unpacked and checked in more boxes of yarn in these last five days than I ever remember us doing before in that short of a time period. (The UPS, Fed Ex, and USPS guys all think it’s really funny to bring 15 or 20 more boxes when there are still 10 or 15 sitting there from the day before. They have a warped sense of humor.) We’ve restocked, added new, made way and moved shelves. It’s all coming together, though, so I thought I’d give you just a few pictures in today’s post.
We filled up the Cascade wall. There were too many empty cubbies earlier. (Still a few empties – the backordered colors. And of course you can’t see the three full bookcases of backstock on these colors. But the wall looks nice and fairly full again.)
We moved shelves around (and had to turn them sideways instead of one long row the other way. It used to look like this in that spot. Eventually we’ll probably have to do that in the other half of this long room, too).
We put up a new slatwall and filled it up with needles. (Well technically “we” didn’t put up the slatwall – WH did that. But I did do the needles.)
We filled up both of our shipping box closets – here’s one of them.
After a week like that, you just have to call it “GOOD” and fill up your stomach with something like these amazing cupcakes that our Loopy friend Lori brought us. (They were seriously good.)
And then, beacause I needed to add another Elf to our Loopy Central Elf Team, I hired Lori to work here three days a week. The other Elves think I ought to have written up a contract that said she had to bring wonderful things from this bakery once a week. She has been known to bring them quite often when she comes by to shop. Why didn’t I think of that? (I would’ve hired her even without the bakery wonders. I’ve always thought she would make a great Elf.)
