Moved the business, got a new logo...

Well, we moved the bookstore from Jefferson City to Dandridge and have now been open almost 2 weeks! I love was a great decision to move!

When we moved, we decided to stay with the same Christian bookstore roots we began with and add a few more things to the mix. We now have Bibles, books, gifts, and antiques! We are very excited to have added antiques to what we already carry. As of now we only have glassware (mostly) but we intend to also add some antique books and other neat items :)

Since we changed our inventory a little, it seemed only fitting we get a new logo. We also had to have a new, and very different, sign and what we had just didn't work well. So, I called a wonderful friend of mine who does custom logo designs and BAM...our new logo was born!

Now for the real reason of this post...

If you need a logo for your business or a new logo for a fresh look, let me suggest Tatorbug Creations! Stephanie is a wonderful designer and has some amazing ideas. She can do custom logos, business cards, wedding and birth announcements, and much more! She also does thread art and can customize blankets, shirts, and bags. She is one multi-talented lady! If you contact her, please let her know you found out about her from my blog. She loves knowing where her customers come from!

Here is the logo she custom designed for us :)

RIP Maggie (Our fur baby)

Yesterday afternoon was one of the worst days of my life! We lost Maggie, our fur baby. She got out of the house and was hit by a car; it killed her instantly. I wasn't home when it happened, so my Papaw and Daddy got her and buried her for me; Dad called to tell me and ask me if that is what I wanted them to do. I did not want to see her body, so I told them to bury her for me...I just couldn't do it.

Maggie was Lawson's birthday present two years ago. As of right now, he hasn't said anything about her not being around. When he does, I will explain to him she was hit by a car, it hurt her really bad and that she is now in heaven with Jesus. Then, I will try my best to answer whatever questions he has.

I think eventually we will get another dog, but right now I can't even think about it. How do you get over it? She was like a second child to us :(

RIP Maggie...we will miss you!

So sorry...

I haven't blogged in weeks! I have been crazy busy and I am worn out...all I want to do when I get home is sleep :/

Almost three weeks ago we made the decision to move the store from Jefferson City to Dandridge. It was one of those last minute decisions and it was a quick transition.
