No, that's not "Holly." That's the "Mothership"...her name btw is Jan.
About five years ago I adopted the name "Mothership" because I had some woman harrassing me through email and comments about how I referred to her as "my mom" and tried to mock the fact that we are a mother/son team. It was getting seeew bad that I started to not want to post. Well, unbeknownst to me our loyal blog readers enjoyed the nickname seeew much that it just took hold and the "Mothership" was born. The moral of the story...take someone's negative and turn it upside down.
As far as "Holly" is concerned, we always know when a solicitor is calling the Shoppe because they ask for "Holly." Nice try but uh...that's not her name. You'd think that if they wanted us to buy from them or listen to their spiel, they'd maybe do their research to find out the owner's name? Another give away I always know it's a solicitor...our actual customers don't call us from a noisy call center. LOL. Truth be told Holly is the name of a very ugly cat that belongs to one of my brothers. I suppose I can't be too harsh because it was her name that has made us who we are today, right? I should try and get a photo. I'll get on that stat.
The purpose of this blog post however is to let you know we are now open until 8pm on Thursdays here in the Charbonneau District of Wilsonville, Oregon. We sent a survey last month asking our followers what night they would like to see the Shoppe open late, and the result was Thursday night! Friday was in second place but I have a hard time with giving up my Friday night for someone to maybe show up. I'm still young...I've got dance floors to burn up! LOL.
No seriously, Thursday nights are a great night to come out as the traffic isn't bad at all and it's gorgeous out here! The best part about it is that it was selected by YOU! We are excited to see what happens!
We do have an English Paper Piecing Club on Thursday night once a month from 6:30pm-8:30pm seeew be sure to check out the schedule located here. Seats are limited to 8 and each month the "Mothership" will be introducing new projects and techniques! The first date is June 15, 2017.
This Saturday is our neighbor's first birthday! Lux Sucre Desserts turns one! That's a huge milestone! To celebrate we are adding a complimentary Kid's Craft Table from 12pm-4pm. The Mothership will be teaching these adorable popsicle garlands which is what she has been working on in the photo above! She's created a variety of styles so bring your favorite little one and watch them be creative!
Alright everyone...we are looking forward to seeing the result of your survey! Are Thursday nights your best night to visit? I guess we will find out!
Stay Seeew-cial! ~ Brian
