Gratitude

For those of you in this "biz" of ours, you know it has changed quite a bit over the past couple of years ago or so. It use to be you could always bank on week-ends, and the week days were there to add some extra to what you sold over the week-end. Now, it is a whole different game. There is no longer any rhyme or reason to business. So, at Country Roads we all pretty much have the same goal. Good displays,quality merchandise, and customer service that, in my opinion, is some of the best around and a priority in any business! We open our front door daily with a smile on our face and work our business. You never, ever know what to expect of the day. Will it be busy, will it be slower, you just never know. Yesterday was one of those days that caught us by surprise. We are having a mini Fall heat wave, and I'm thinking to myself, no one is really going to want to shop. And that attitude is NOT me. I'm pretty much a positive person and strive to live my life that way. So what happened yesterday, a killer day!! Why? HBO's set designer for "True Blood" was in shopping for the show. It was great. And as if that was enough, then the buyer for props from Hurley stopped by. Here are a few of the pictures of what "SOLD" yesterday!


We never know what kind of curve ball life will throw at us. But if we are prepared with a smile on our face, hope in our heart, and positivity in our soul, and a few prayers at night, we'll all be okay, really. And for this, I express my gratitde to my wonderful Country Roads customers. Thank you!

I'm genuinely happy for you. Had a shop in your LB neck-of-the-woods for many years and can relate. May you have many more.

I have missed checking in to see what has been going on with you and the fam.
just starting to do some back reading from everything I have missed.
I think I am going to have to come visit again soon to see it all in person.

Wow Sue that is just awesome. I've heard of set designers going into Uncommon Objects and buying like crazy in Austin as well, but that's a good day indeed! Happy early weekend, T

I will be looking for those items in True Blood! Love that mirror! Of course, the vampires won't be able to see their reflections! :)
