Our second party was a hit! It was significantly larger than our first and more and more people are showing their love and support. We feel so much closer to our goal of owning our own store than we were the day before. We are also recognizing the importance of building a strong base before opening a place. They say that the universe works in mysterious ways but we're beginning to believe that it's not so mysterious. These parties are absolutely necessary to our survival as a long-term business and if we had gotten a space earlier last year (like we wanted) then we could have easily added our name to the list of closing businesses.
So thank you, Universe! and thank you to all our friends (both new and old) that support us!
