closing for the holidays!

soon! Ok so it's just this Mon and Tues and open the rest of the week, closed on Mon and then back on Tues sigh - so three days but still!
Pops and I have been here all day, helping an American choose Aussie books, selling journals, giving kids crackers from the Christmas window display and serving, smiling etc.
I'm getting ready to close...

I have been reading A Father's Affair which is really good and have been going around the shop choosing girly fiction for the next few days, I stocked my house so I could avoid the crazy last minute desperate shopping panic and grab and have organised a Boxing Day lunch on Tues.
The shop has been incredible and the last two weeks have been amazing and worthwhile - we have sold consistently and constantly and most of the stuff that I ordered in is gone! Looking around now; I'll have to restock when I get back after New year's and come up with new ideas and plans - I am anticipating getting more toys, quirky books and fun stuff in and slowing making this shop's POS (point of sale) a little quirky and will be concentrating on better gift items like the toys, stationery, small gifts and unusual/quirky items like the bags, phone chains, my friend has offered to hand make some bookmarks and I am thinking of doing something completely different next year but still have to speak to loads of people and suppliers before I can blog it on here!
So until Wed; I'll be relaxing, reading, lunching, wandering around Bondi, feeding my and my sis's cats, meeting new people and just vegging at home - hopefully Wed will take ages and ages - I want to be on holiday!
