Every evening we take a walk somewhere in our neighborhood or in our town. Usually the hour walk takes us 2-3 miles, allowing us to talk about the day we just had and what kind of day we want to have tomorrow. Sometimes it’s just mellow enjoyment of the moment, or we might be trying to solve a problem we’re having in our business/life which, on more than one occasion, leads to an argument full of passionate opinions. Good news is by the time we get home, it’s all walked off and we know what we need to do.
We had a good week of very satisfying sales. As scavengers, satisfaction is really important because we don’t like to feel we’re just selling random widgets. What keeps us going is the story behind the items we sell. On our walks, we sometimes talk about the things that sold and where we got them. “Can you believe that sold!” is a common refrain.
Ryanne’s big score this week was a stack of Seventeen magazines from the 1980s. One has already sold for $20. Kids these days are REALLY into the 1980s. I remember the 80’s as being super cheesy and dumb.
For anyone needing coffee, we hope you consider our fresh roasts. We have two new employees who we’re training to roast and ship so we need to keep them busy :). And check out some of our new Broad Porch swag!
