Jim is my blogging "conscience". He is always asking me if I updated the blog and, if I answer that I haven't, he tells me that I need to!
Zoe will continue to have many "firsts" as the year progresses. On Friday, I had my first return (oh dear!) As you know, Zoe's bags are pretty distinct. I saw a woman walking down Union Street with one and I thought "Hmmm - she is either coming to get something else (I encourage people to bring their bags back for a discount) or she is returning something." Indeed, she was returning something. I had contacted my point of sale software help desk not long after I had opened to make sure I knew how to process a return. It took me a little while to run through it because I wanted to make sure I did it right and didn't create a credit card issue for either of us. Fortunately, it went smoothly.
On a lighter note, I had the first couple kiss in my store over the weekend! A sweet smooch!
And, I'm getting ready to start my first annual spring sale on Tuesday! I had gone through and noted all of my upcoming shipments (through November, believe it or not) and know I'm going to have more coming in early to mid-June. I need to start moving some of the remaining Spring items to make room for the new items. I have sold out of several things. I can tell you that my customers love things in all shades of blue - those have definitely been my best sellers!
I had visits from friends Martha and Alex D. over the weekend and Janice came to help me on Sunday afternoon. I love seeing familiar faces in the shop!
