There's a First Time For Everything

We want to thank everyone who came to our first ever open house. Angel's Attic was launched on Saturday and was a great success. We received a lot of positive comments about our decor inside and out, as well as the products we were selling. The weather even played along, giving us a sunny mild day. After the pseudo-monsoon of the previous Friday, the sun was a gift!

All wasn't goodness and light, however. Kristen (Sophia's) came down with the H1N1 virus on Thursday and couldn't finish setup on Friday or work the sale on Saturday. If you know her, you know how hard that was for her. She has been a driving force behind our beginning Angel's Attic, and is our principal decorator, so getting all of the feedback second hand had to be disappointing. She is also great with people, so we missed her dearly. Kim and Jessica did a great job covering the bases, but it would have been easier if all hands had been on deck.

We have also learned a few things since doing our first sale that will help us down the road. For instance, next time we will have more signs in more locations!

We are really looking forward to our next sale and wish we could do it right away. Unfortunately, the weather will probably not cooperate and the Attic isn't insulated or heated, so wouldn't provide the finest of shopping experiences. In case you were wondering - and I hope you were - our next sale is scheduled for April 24th.
