Pretty sure I'm going to close the store at the end of the year. The distance between here and there is too great and I can't be there enough. It was a lark, an escape from grief, and most certainly a labor of love. A lot of labor, a lot of love.
editing to add (since the question is coming up)
I'm planning to keep the Etsy store going and maybe take a space in an antiques cooperative. I may reopen in the Catskills in the future, if I can find a reasonable space in one of the summer towns, for the summer and fall. I'll be writing more about this of course, and will still have a store to write about for a few months. And if you listen to the song and look at the pictures, they are more melancholy than I feel. My feelings are mixed. Yes sad. Yes relieved. Bittersweet is the word of the day.
