The time has come for big decisions. There seems to be certain times in our lives where things just push us in certain directions. It was that way when I opened up my brick and mortar store. The world just lined things up so nicely for me to open. Now the world is pushing me to shift gears and change things. The increased overhead and not enough of an increase in sales to support the increase is ultimately pushed me to make this decision. So, the somewhat sad news is that I will be closing the brick and mortar location down at the end of December. The good news is that I’m not totally going away. Just going back to the model that is self-supporting. I’m planning farmer’s market, and fairs, and some other ideas are cooking but are nowhere near done. I will still have my webpage/web-store and I will be available for classes. I just need to bring it back down to where the income isn’t so disproportional to the outgoing.
In all of this I do have to say thank you to the folks who have supported my adventure. Those of you who came in to the store to talk, knit, took a class, bought yarn, and supported my business; thank you from the bottom of my heart. A special thank you to my employee Barb. I could not do this without your help.
I’m sure you have questions. I will do my best to answer them. Our December schedule is a bit wonky. For that I apologize. Life and holidays get a little nuts around this time of year.
Dec 6-9 Open normal hours: Wed-Fri 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Saturday 12-5 p.m. with our Open Textile Study Group meeting Saturday the 9th
Dec 13-15 we are closed – Life happens, especially right before Christmas it seems.
Dec 16 Saturday open 12-5 p.m.
Dec 20-23 open normal hours Wed-Fri 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Saturday 12-5 p.m.
Dec 27-30 tentatively open normal hours although this may change. This will be our last week at the 312 E. Overland location.
As far as sales go: Yes,I will have some things on sale.
Will I have a total clearance? No. Remember I’m re-grouping and not totally going away so I will be keeping inventory and displays etc. I just won’t be at my current location after December.
Where can you find me after December? Make sure to check my Facebook page. I’m pretty good about answering messages on there if you need something. Otherwise you can find me at www.littlehawkyarns.com until further notice.
