It seems Bonnie has been too busy to write a blog for January. There is always a good reason or more. Making and mailing orders is the best excuse!
Some of our friends heard the sad news in our Christmas letter that Silvio, our nearly fourteen-year-old mascot, died on December 16 of a stroke or heart attack. It has been a month, and we are still mourning and telling sweet stories about our dear son. In February we will begin the journey to adopt a new mascot from the Springfield Humane Society where we got him.. Our Zoe says get an orange character.
On our News Page you would read that our barn board sign containing the stained glass icon of our logo Andro blew down and was shattered recently in a wind gust. The frame is repaired, and we found a Vermont Crafts Council stained glass artist through a friend to replace the oval glass piece.
The month’s highlight is a Marketing Bundles 2017 color page, featuring two shining stars, Sophie and Scarlett, and our hope to get back into the elementary school to do after-school workshops. It is handed out with our paper catalog, featuring the Attic Angels, and we mailed it with our brochure to customers we haven’t heard from in awhile. It is already doing great work.
Lastly, we are a member of Shop Chester Vt both on its website, and our “working girls” Honey and Allison will be featured in the group’s Guilford Vermont Welcome Center display for the month of February. Our yard sign will beckon visitors for now, and Andro in cloth will be inside in all her glory to welcome folks.
