Apparently there is a rumor going around town and the internet …… I received a couple emails in the last week asking if the shop is closing down for a while. Apparently someone has reached this conclusion on thier own because the answer is 100% no. The shop is not closing or cutting back the number of days we are open. Just because I am welcoming two bundles of joy into our life doesn’t mean anything is changing with the business. If anything I have plans for expansion in the coming year.
For those of you that have been with me since the beginning know that I gave up an executive position in Corporate America to start the business. My husband and I are a dual income family by necessity. Stylish Patina is not a hobby for me it’s a business that supports our family financially. I am grateful that owning my own business will provide me a more schedule flexibility when raising my children as well as the fact that I have my fabulous mother that lives down the street. As for the details of child care for the twins that is a personal decision that won’t necessarily be shared on the blog.
I have a staff of 3 amazing girls that have all been with me for over a year plus. Sarah is our new manager in the shop & rough luxe market, Laura has been with me since we opened the shop and she manages all of our custom paint transformation projects and Heather is our craft maniac! All 3 of the girls are paint experts and fully versed in all aspects of the shop. They are there to help you with your paint projects or to assist you in picking out a gift. You can also email the shop at any time with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
