Ello My Lovley Baykahs!
What a week of work and THOUGHT. You guys really gave me some interesting ideas...and LOTS to think about. I've talked to a LOT of my customers, received some great feedback, and decided to keep THINKING...
The biggest concern right now is my family....and by FAMILY I don't just mean Brian, Abbi, Lucy, and my mom. I mean Snazzy, Kim, and Dirty Butter too...these people DEPEND on Retro...and so do THEIR new families (Snazzy and Kim BOTH just got engaged this past week!!). All these people are living their dreams TOO, and THAT is the real kicker.
It's pretty amazing when you think about it...here I was five years ago just a stay-at-home mom wishing I could open my own shop. Fast forward to NOW, and we've got NINE employees (three full time) who now depend on the decisions that I make. I do NOT want to screw it up...I do NOT want to let THEM down. I WILL NOT LET THEM DOWN.
So, we're thinking, exploring, and RESEARCHING options. This will NOT be a rash decision. This will be a careful, debated, and debated AGAIN decision...and I'll let you ALL know what's happening FIRST. YOU all have been here from the beginning, and I am so happy to see that LOTS of you have YOUR own stores, too now! We're ALL in this together. The GREAT Amercian SWEET dream.
