Although the leaves have not turned yet,
Fall is in full swing here in Michigan.
The air is crisp on the morning,
and by afternoon it warms up a bit.
The foreign freighters are in the river.
Heading up to Duluth for their grain cargoes.
I think the herons and egrets left already,
as I dont see them anymore.
Am loving all of the spooky Halloween shows.
Svengoolie, Ghost Adventures, Ghost Hunters.
We even watched Hocus Pocus 2 on Friday.
Then there are the food Halloween shows
on Food Network.
Am loving the Michigan apples and cider.
More Fall in the store.
I just got these hand blown vases in a few weeks ago.
You can add a flameless candle inside
or a flower arrangement.
If these do not sell by the time I set up
for Christmas, I have a plan for them then too.
Love the orange in the blue cabinet.
Gives the display a pop.
Fun things for display.
I only have one of these pillows left.
A big hit.
These are a few of the crocheted pumpkins I created.
The blue, white and gray ones all sold out.
This sheep and wheelbarrow block
just came in to.
These orange slits smell wonderful!
Another fine display in shades of yellow.
These pumpkin tins just arrived last week.
So did the owls.
I also have squirrels, but forgot to take pic.
Love the plaid throw and it is so very soft.
The pumpkin tins are almost gone.
Every weekend I keep re-arranging things.
Filling in gaps where things sold.
Even the front Halloween window gets
changed up weekly.
My room is getting empty.
Customers are now asking when I will be
bringing out Christmas.
Well that will begin on Sunday night
after I close.
Yep you heard me right.
Most folks will have there
Fall and Halloween decor up by then.
I will start in the back room and move forward.
What's left will be packed away.
I dont have sales.
Our philosophy was from the beginning
not to mark things very high
and just mark like we are having
a sale every day.
I still make a little money,
while the customers can purchase affordable items.
Its the reason why I dont have to pack up
much for each season.
Also dont keep inventory which
if you know business is not good for the bottom line.
Well off to work.
Then to the store after dinner.
More Christmas inventory came in.
Fall Is Here Blessings To All!
