Back At The Shop

I’d like to thank everyone for their patience and continued support while I moved my family to our new apartment. I’m back (oh my back!) and hope to be rockin and rollin after a couple coffees!

The office (now at the house) is far from from being set up. Linda is working on it and will be up and running soon.

Next… I hope to move to shop this fall!

I apologize for the delayed post this week. Due to heat, humidity and the upcoming move to a new apartment, this will be the last update for a few weeks. I want to be able to clear my table and be available to my family in order to get us relocated.

The high humidity we are experiencing and a lack of air conditioning and insulation at the present shop has made polishing a challenge, whether I am polishing wood needles or nickel needles, and that is slowing me down. It slows the process and it slows me too.

(For those who have not visited, our present shop is 30 miles from our current home in a circa 1920  building – we are working toward changing that at some point later this year.)

Unlisted items will be worked on over the coming weeks, but I am not going to put up any new lists until after we have moved into our apartment. Thanks for your understanding.

Tom

May 31, 2015

I am not putting up any new numbers this week. I want to focus on clearing my bench of the remaining orders from the past two weeks. Family events and the holiday shortened my work time recently, the best of which was the graduation of our son, Nick, from Vermont Academy:

 

Me and Nick
 
For those in the New England area, this coming Saturday is our annual visit to Squam Lake for the vendor night at Squam Art Workshops Spring Retreat. It’s my only chance during the year to get out and interact with customers. I look forward to it each year. There are two hours of shopping (and free beer!) at beautiful Squam Lake in New Hampshire. I hope to see some of you there.

By week’s end, the table should look like it did on Friday:

  
As you can see, Jake was exhausted after all the packing!

For those in the US today, we hope you enjoy your Memorial Day holidays.
