The year is winding down and that means we'll be doing Inventory at the end of this week! Some welcome in the New Year with horns and whistles and confetti ... SNT welcomes in the New Year with yellow lined legal pads, pens and calculators! Since we're in such a smaller location, Inventory becomes 'interestering'!
At the old location, when we were in Davison, we'd have our stitching friends/customers come in and help us do all the counting .. and would end up with about 20 or so people in the shop.
In our Fenton location, we couldn't fit 20 people in the shop all at one time if we tried. Well, wait .. I lie. We COULD fit 20 in the shop quite easily .. as long as no one wanted to move from the place they were standing in! So .. Debbie, LouAnn, and I .. along with Diana and Kathy and a couple of stitching friends/customers will be doing the counting again this year. We expect it will take Friday and Saturday but we should have Sunday off for our 'day of rest'. We actually do have some fun .. I think our friends have more fun than we do (for sure!). I mean, we have to count every single 'button', charm, needle, chart, fabric .. everything! And then after all has been recorded, we have to 'tally up' the cost (that's the part I hate the actual seeing on paper just how much I have inside those four walls!!). I think margaritas at Sagebrush may play a part in Inventory this year! The part of owning a business that I absolutely HATE with a passion .. not the margaritas, the counting and realization!
