Ups & Downs

Tomorrow is the big Starlighting Festival in Downtown Castle Rock! We'll be at the Barn from open to close! We have our 2nd Recipe Book class ( TWO SPOT LEFT!) from 11-1 & then we're going to hang out & be creative all day! There will be a lot going on downtown from about 2pm to 6pm for the lighting of the star on top of "Castle Rock" & the Barn will have hot cocoa in the evening for everyone! Stop by if you can!!

On the "downside..."
We've been a little discouraged with sales lately & picked the brains of some of the other Barnies as to what we need to do to attract more traffic. So, after a junking day & brainstorming, we re-arranged the shop so that it's more inviting & hopefully will hold a shoppers interest a little longer. Some of our finds went right into the shop, but others we are holding onto so that we might re-purpose them to hold some memories.

We're also finding that the shoppers just don't seem to get what we're all about & that can be very frustrating. On the one hand, we like to create our albums ready for photos, but on the other hand it might be better to just carry more kits & ephemera for the collage artist or scrapbooker. We are definitely in the learning process & just hope that we can make rent for a few more months! So, please spread the word for us! We need all the help we can get! We have heard from a few customers that they're glad we're here & are hoping that a scrapbook community will start up again in Castle Rock since the local scrap stores are all closed. That's a little encouraging.
