Thankful thoughts

Tim and I will be celebrating 2 years as the Proprietors of The Brickhouse Craft Shop. We opened our small Craft Shop on December 8, 2007. I look back on pictures of our Shop on that opening day....we were so proud of our little Shop, but we didn't have the Shop filled with goodies like we do now...but we were so proud and happy to have our Shop. I remember our very first customer...she gave us our first dollar which we have on a grapevine wreath behind our counter...everytime she comes in she points out that she is the one who gave us that first dollar. She is so nice and so are all our wonderful customers...or as Tim and I call them..OUR FRIENDS! We have met so many nice people since we opened and that is what we enjoy most about having our little Shop. Above the door of our Shop is a saying "Enter as strangers, leave as friends" this is so true! We are so thankful for all the new friends that we met since opening and we are so thankful for ALL our wonderful Artists who keep The Brickhouse filled with awesome primitive goodies. I want to say a special thank you to my partner, my best friend, my handsome husband, Tim. He has been a great partner in this wonderful journey. Our Shop would not be the success it is today without him..he is my rock! I am so proud of his talent and so proud to be his partner.I am so thankful that he never complains when the house is a mess or if we are eating PBJ sandwiches for dinner because of the time I spend on making signs for the Shop or some other craft..Thank you Tim for putting up with me.
The Brickhouse is filled to the rafters with some really awesome goodies...You all need to stop by if you are in our neck of the woods. And if you can't make it..here is a little tour of our Shop. Enjoy....
I end the tour with this picture..I love April and Tony's snowman and I love this little sign..DREAM BIG DREAMS...Tim and I always dreamed of having a craft Shop...Dreams DO come TRUE..thank you to all our wonderful friends.~~Patti~~
