My goodness it has been a long time since I've updated this page. It is not for lack of activity, but a surfeit, and a resulting lack of time. The opening of the Williamsburg location of the Brooklyn Flea has meant a few more orders and one more day at a market instead of in the shop. It did not result in a comensurate increase in my business or organizational skills, which became a problem these last few weeks. Only time can really tell you if you've learned something, but I certainly hope I have. Because I like sleeping.
The upside of a crash-and-burn like this is the fact you do a lot of deliveries in a short amount of time, and though outsourcing that time-intensive process is part of the new plan, I did do one myself the other day and was reminded it is one of my favorite parts of the business. Seeing a piece go in to a new home is a gas and because I make fairly utilitarian pieces, I get to see them take ther place as a part of a person or family's day-to-day routine. I also get to see some neat places, like the one in the pic above. A tiny apartment, but with a huge deck at least equal to the size of the floorplan.
