This week we are loving...

an empty space...

...a "For Rent" sign...

...and the time to recharge our batteries and plan our next move!

Today is the first day of our "Retail Retirement"...
We have closed our San Clemente store... a decision that was not easy to make but that brings us a lot or relief!!
After a very deserved brake we will revamp our website, fill up our Etsy store with lots of goodies and keep our eyes and ears open to new, simpler adventures...
In the meantime...

Cheers to accomplished dreams and simple living!!

Now, off to visit you all, we have been away for a few days and we really, really miss you!!
XOXO

From everything I've heard, it's quite hard to be a shop owner. No matter what, I'm looking forward to your newer/different vintage style adventures!

Enjoy your semi-retirement, and you know if you ever want to dabble your feet in this biz again, I'm just a phone call or email away! Wishing you both the best!

Blessings to you

Oh Good Luck Girls! I am sure whatever you do will be fabulous with both of your styles and grace. Take a well deserved brake, enjoy your families, create, sleep late, get mani's and pedi's and have a cupcake or two or three or four in my case!!!!!

Love you girls!!

I only rent a space but it is still quite demanding...
