Video of The Shop

This is an EIGHT minute video of my shop the day after we closed. I took this "silent movie" for myself so that if I ever feel like looking back at it and remembering it, I would have it.

Sadly, my video camera wouldn't hold a charge so I used my mother's FLIP video camera which worked great but has less than stellar high def capabilities. I walked around s-l-o-w-l-y. It's not very interesting and the shelves are pretty empty with products having being sold out, but you get the idea if you ever wanted to see the little shop of Product.

I'm feeling really good, by the way. I feel like the shop closing is a good thing because doors appear to be opening right in front of my eyes. But we'll see.

Kim, Thank you for coming with Gary for the goodbye party and for bringing Gertrude the day before. I love you guys!!!!

Michael and Jillian, It was such a pleasure to have you visit from so far away, you have no idea! You came so far out of your way to visit my little ole shop. What an honor! I loved being a little part of your wedding and I will always make products for you if you want me to. You guys are wonderful!

All the best to you, too!

I loved seeing the video (watched the entire thing). And I can't wait to see what new doors continue to open for you.

Thank you for sharing this very personal moment with us. It was sad reading your thoughts through the process and it is good to hear that you are staying positive! I wish you a happy future!

I watched it. The quiet and the power of it, well....it choked me up. It's empty now. Thank goodness I took the video. :) I'm glad I shared it with you.

:D

I'm really glad you did the video too because all of us can look at it whenever we miss it. Best as always, Mom

What a beautiful space it was; I'm sorry I never got to see it in person.

I'd have you decorate my home if you lived close by...I'm afraid I don't have the tasteful eye that you do.

It is beautiful and bittersweet. It hits home. Having a brick and mortar isn't as glamorous as it looks at times. My love is with you. Thank you for sharing this.
