It's been a long time since I've felt like I've had anything to add here. I finally decided to get going and pick up where I left off. We had to close our store in January (a victim of the slow economy) so the major reason I wasn't writing at the end of last year was because there were a lot of issues we had to deal with. But now all is done and we redid our website to focus on selling retail through our new online shop. Check us out at http://www.manitobagifts.com/. We also have had good sales to one of our wholesale accounts, Artful, out in Santa Monica, California. Thanks so much to her! Our Etsy shop continues to be successful and we look forward to keeping it going. We've also started hitting up some consignment shops south and east of us in Lanesboro, Mn., Maiden Rock, Wisconsin, and soon, Norhfield, Mn. It's fun to have our options...I'm actually not making much these days because I don't have to. Sales for me have slowed down and I feel like I'm stocked for potential sales so I'm just going to keep updating on a more regular basis here. What I'm posting here now is a photo we took of a trip in January to the Conservatory at Como Park in St. Paul. The beautiful greens always make me happy.
