Yes....you read that correctly....you all are trendsetters.
While, under normal circumstances, I don't care much about what the latest trends are....I can get on board with this one...mostly because we have BEEN on board with this one for 21 years!
So....what is this "new" trend?? To spend your time and money on experiences rather than just "stuff".
All of you have joined us for the Sweet Memories experience from the beginning!! And we are more than just an experience....we are an experience with benefits!! You can go skydiving, zip lining or mountain climbing....but when you come in and visit with us....you leave full, with goodies from the bakery and a few new treasures from the shop!!
And THAT experience....is going to be better than ever!!
Right now.....the upstairs looks like a train wreck! But.....we are making amazing progress (considering we are working in the middle of a train wreck!! 😉) and my vision is coming to fruition!! I must say....when the paint first started to cover the walls....I had a moment (or 6) of doubt.....but....not any more!! It is looking great and I can't wait to show it to you!!
So, so many of you have been asking about our plans and have shown so much excitement and anticipation.....even making your lunch reservations for our open house dates!! For this....I thank you!! This renovation has been a lot of work....and it's all I think about. And, I KNOW the new format will take some getting used to....but everyday that I spend on this project just makes me even more sure that I made the right decision.
Just a little over three weeks to go....and you are going to have a wonderful experience!! I mean...no zip lines....but wonderful just the same!! 😜 Thank you for sticking by us.....and for being the trendsetters that you are!!

Well...first...everyone has stopped thinking we were closing the whole place. That's a good thing. I must say... I am still baffled as to how that piece of misinformation was derived from the post.
Second....there has been some backlash. It was expected...this was not the first time I have made major changes in our long history....and most people don't like change. But, from a business standpoint, change is not only necessary it is essential. Static and boring are not words you want people to use when they describe you!!
You are just going to have to trust me....you are going to LOVE what we are doing....I know I do!! And, while you won't be able to go upstairs and browse everyday of the week....we still have a great selection of treasures scattered throughout the downstairs! Plenty to look at...plenty to buy!
Now....a little sneak peek into what we have been up to.
Hmmm.....I don't want to give any secrets away and spoil the surprise.
Well....let's just say...we are about to get very friendly with brushes and cans....I have been threading my needle...a LOT...(I forgot how much I enjoy sewing!! 😉) my husband has been refinishing and building, the vintage stash is growing....and Fall and Halloween 2016 are going to be AWESOME!!!!!!!
I know it's not what you're used to....but, let's be honest, is ANYTHING at Sweet Memories like anyone else's.......nope!! That's why you love us!! 😊 And right back at ya!!
