Well, we talked to a few people - even gave out 12 of 48 cupcakes (anyone need 23 cupcakes ... like tomorrow?) ... even entertained a few kids while parents looked at info ... but alas, no bookings.
I got sick yesterday so Allan had to run the show alone. He did great ... even talked to a few people. But we were late opening the shop due to my getting sick and I guess we missed a lot of people. Oh, well ... you win some you lose some.
I did get a little depressed today. I see shops that just have opened (and one who hasn't even opened) getting business and I wonder ... did I chose the wrong thing to sell. People seem interested, but no one is booking anything. Either we just missed their birthdays or the ones they have are in the spring. Doesn't anyone have a birthday to celebrate here before Christmas?
I am going to go in this week and start making pinatas ... maybe show people I am creative ... as if the design of my shop wasn't proof enough!
I sure hope that things start to pick up or I might have to say bye bye to this expensive endeavor ... Sure hope I didn't waste $13 grand on this ... and all that renovation we did ... If I wasn't meant to do this ... I sure wish God had closed some doors before we went into this debt.
Sorry if this is not the blog post you were hoping for ... just keeping it real. At least my day job seems to be picking up ... I got a taste of it today and will get more of a taste on Wed and again on Thurs. So I guess I can rely on that ... for a while.
