I had lots and lots of women in my store the other day! I have a small store so lots mean 3. Sometimes I stand in the hallway to give the ladies extra room but if I am needed  I stand in the middle of the room and direct traffic like an Air Traffic Controller. Small is sometimes good. I don’t have to move my footing, just pivot as I multi-task until all questions are answered, all needs are met and happily, purchases are made. It is interesting to watch people interact in a small space. We all have to be...

  Did you know to help control impulse shopping, eating a a few pieces of chocolate will increase glucose production which curbs grabbing off the shelves! Being a retailer, I really shouldn’t be divulging this information but I like my customers and I wanted to share this tidbit of information. Just another good reason to eat chocolate! Needless to say I will not be offering chocolate treats at the door! I do need to sell stuff!                   Labor Day is next week. The prime indicator that summer is officially over. Most of the...

So be the introduction of the New Fall Colors presented by The Pantone Color Institute along with its executive director Leatrice Eiseman.   Sometimes I...

Mother Daughter Shopping

 So much information is exposed in such a short time. The dynamics of a mother/daughter relationship unfolds before my eyes. Sometimes, very entertaining, other times not so much, but many times heartfelt. My favorite visits occur when both ladies enjoy my clothing and find each other outfits off the rack. I am constantly surprised when the daughter emerges from the dressing room wearing a big smile on her face along with an outfit or separate she looks and feels great in. Previously, a similar piece she is trying on had been sold to a much older woman. I am always amazed how an...

Monochromatic Word Games

The Monochromatic Look O.K. So, I will let the cat out of the bag. I am a woman’s store owner/clothing stylist that has Tourette Syndrome. It has eased up as I have aged, but there are still some very strong and sometimes fun vestiges of this annoying Syndrome. One of my favorite is word games. This is what I call it. Briefly, my brain registers a word then continually offers me a pallet of choices  spinning off from the original. Maybe you have a version of this little play on words rattling around your head from time to time. When...
