Branching Out

We have decided to branch out into the business world. A new store just opened last week in a nearby small town. It is renting space to vendors and my daughter and I decided to each take two feet. I already had a slat rack for craft shows but of course the shelves that I had for it weren't 4' long, and not enough of them, so I went to the lumber store and bought a sheet of 1/2inch plywood which they were nice enough to cut into the suitable widths for me.

My next stop was to pick up some felt yardage to cover the shelves (protection for the glass and the yarn from shelves that I didn't have time to properly sand and finish)
Today was moving in day for us. It was so much fun to get everything labeled with our identifying number and price and decide where each item would be placed to look it's best. We still have some tweaking to do, adding a little more yarn and soy candles, some signs and contact information.
We are happy to be a part of a new venture. If you are driving down M-32 in Northern Michigan and see a sign for Homespun Harvests,Elmira, stop in and shop or just browse. I have a feeling there will always be something new to discover.


  1. Congrats! Your space looks great. I hope you have great success in the new venture. I love that small towns are finding their way to promote local folks.
