I knew this was gong to be a crazy week - I had seven orders coming in and some of them were huge. But, I had no idea I would spend hours crawling around the floor and days reinventing the wheel ... yikes !!
My husband & I came in late Friday night to move some shelving around so I would have a place to put 2 new product lines . We moved some shelves and then started to move the big grey spinner full of charms. There was a terrible noise and the entire spinner just disintegrated . The next sound was the waterfall of charms - thousands of them - pouring out of the bins. It was horrible. I felt sick. I locked the door and went home - I didn't even want to look at it.
The next morning I came in and started crawling on the floor picking up charms - they were everywhere !! I picked up shards of plastic shelving and charms for over 3 hours. When I was done I had lots of drawers half full, lots of empty ones, and lots of smashed ones ... and 2 bins of charm soup !!!
I put out several themes so far with quite a few new charms ... western, horses, birds, bird cages, feathers, skulls, fantasy, firefighters, occupations, sports, children & school, cats, dogs, animals, beach & sea, clothing.
So now on to the other news of the day ... what I unpacked tonight !!
