I'm finally ready to try this...
Customers have been asking for months that I do something online for the shop. So here I am, blogging. Hopefully I'll be able to keep everyone updated on the goings on at the shop, when we get special shipments in and stuff like that. Also, any of our out-of-town customers will be able to keep better in touch if they want to.
Since mom refuses to learn most things having to do with the computer, I'll be the sole person updating the blog. Hopefully, I'll be able to post often and make sure the blog doesn't get stale. Forgive me if I slack a little this semester, though...I have an 18 hour schedule at school and I'm really trying to get done by August 2008!
The latest news is that we just got back from our big annual family vacation to Kiawah Island, South Carolina. This was our ninth year, if I'm counting correctly and we still have just as much fun as we did the first summer. We go with my dad's brother Buddy and his family and stay in a big house about three blocks from the beach.
Mom and I always take the opportunity on the trip to go scouting for ideas in Charleston at the great shops down there. We actually got the chance this year, when we were in a Birkenstocks/Crocs shoe store, to meet a woman who helped to design the Sassari wedge for the Crocs Company. She says they have a version coming out next year that is actually adjustable for those of you with very narrow feet. There are several business owners down there that we've made friends with over the years. We get great tips from them about products and display ideas and they often get ideas from us too.
I guess thats all for now. Thanks for reading and I hope you'll visit again soon when I add more on here!
Till then - Ashley
