This week marks one year since we closed our shop. Our self-imposed quarantine began on March 17 after Don & our daughter Billie returned from a long weekend in Memphis getting Billie acclimated for her upcoming 2 years working as a first grade teacher at the Memphis School of Excellence. We had no idea what Billie & Don’s exposure might have been so we felt compelled to close the shop for two weeks to be sure we were all healthy. Shortly after we closed, the Governor closed everything.
We were closed for two months. We spent that time ramping up our online sales and working on projects that can only be done when your shop is empty (rearranging, deep cleaning, painting, landscaping). We reopened in May with low expectations. But you all came back to shop.
You’ve been home doing your own projects and have been coming to us for pieces to use in your new spaces; you’ve been home listening to music and coming to us to add to your vinyl collections; you’ve been bored because travel & entertainment options have been limited so you’re visiting the places that have been able to stay open; you’ve been worried about visiting places that are too crowded and our shop feels like a safe space to go.
Whatever your reason, we want to send our thanks to all of you. It finally feels like we are turning the corner on Covid but we will never forget your support. So we are sending our love & gratitude to all of our regular and new customers. We look forward to ditching the masks so that you can see the smiles you’ve put on our faces! To all, one love.
