You all know a great sale when you see it, and you definitely know how to spread the word. What started out as pallet amounts of the retired collections of Opal sock yarn has now dwindled down to just a few boxes. You've kept us on our toes the past couple weeks- all three of us have worked extra hours packing up all your orders, and we greatly appreciate your continued support of SSYC.
Afterall, it's not just my family and the family of dyers and yarn companies you have supported these past nearly-seven years. SSYC now employs more people and our families thank you too! With each purchase you make at my small (but ever-growing) sock yarn store, you affect the lives of myself, the ladies who work for me, our husbands and young kids, all the small dyers who send us fiber and the workers from larger companies, delivery people and their families, and even the small businesses and neighborhood around SSYC who are affected by the influx of shoppers and of the restoration of a previously unused but worthy building.
You allow us all the flexibility to care for our wee ones and also be home in time for the bus or the pre-school pick up. We make a living wage doing something that we really like. Those that phone the store, stop in the store or e-mail are pleasant and gracious and I feel that we see the best of the best in people. You all are the best bosses ever!
Enough gushing. I'm in a good mood (much better than last week), even though I've been up since 4am (ugh, this baby won't stop dancing). Now take a look at the awesome new spring bags from Bird Leg Bags!
