Nearly there, kind of

Signing for the premises this morning, so have slept about two hours tops, and each time I woke I had buttons, yarn and needles running through my dreams. If I get the keys today the pace will increase dramatically. Or as dramatically as possible with me at the helm. Still have no yarn, altho' I'm set up to order some once the banks sort themselves out. Why does it take four days for a telephone transfer of funds to clear? They could send a member of staff across town with the cash in his back pocket quicker than that.

To have a cash till or not to have a cash till? That is the question. If I don't have a cash till, am I telling the cosmos I'm not expecting to get many sales? If I do have one, does that introduce too much an aspect of financial motivation into my little woodentops world? So many decisions; so little brain power.

This four days to clear funds is ridiculous. How very exciting though.

Lots of the 'quaint' shops don't have cash tills so I don't see why you need one. You can always think again when sales are so high you need to employ lots of staff.

Good luck with it!

Banks? It is rather nuts for the bank to drag their feet in such a way. It is also an adventure of sorts, isn't it?
Just breath, and live the dream. What a wonderful thing it is to create a place that you will love to work in and that people will love to shop in.
praying for the highest and best.

Hi Shirley - 'When sales are so high you need to employ lots of staff' - hahahahaha...

Hello EM Jean. Is that your blog with the lovely decorated mail boxes? Gorgeous.
I think you've summed it up - nuts and an adventure at the same time!

Sounds very exciting! I'd have a till just to show you mean business. A pretty one though - maybe knitted?

Hi Karen - a knitted till - that sounds gorgeous, but tricky for one of my limited ability. I have knitted my open and closed sign - will that do?
