It's been a bit since I've blogged. I know, I know, what's new? Well several things actually, thanks for asking...
Our soul sisters, Savannah and Jaime have moved on to bigger and better things in their life. And since it's still technically a crime to kidnap someone, hold them against their will, and make them work, we sadly had to wish them the best. Bittersweet.
Savannah is studying to become a professional Day-Maker at the Paul Mitchell School (= free haircuts for me!!) and Jaime is continuing her degree in Art Education in Dundee, Scotland! You can follow her blog here.
Which leads me to the introduction of our fabulous new staff. And you know how much I love introductions.
Racheal is my new right-hand woMAN. She's a perfect fit for my personality and we work amazingly well together. She's sweet when I'm mean. She's morning peppy while I have to down at least two cups of coffee before I become even somewhat functional. We don't have the same shoe size, so I still get first pick on all the 8.5s that come in. She allows me to make fun of her patchouli. All the while sporting a slight smirk; like maybe she knows something I don't.
The only problem we have so far is that she mumbles. So I call her "Mumbles." Truth is, I can't hear very well, but she allows me to blame it on her.
Ladies and Gentleman, meet Racheal, Sid's new Assistant Manager and Buyer.
Queen of all things Rockabilly, meet Brittany. She's a sass-filled sweetheart and a woman after my own heart. She only drinks Cheerwine, she loves Moon-Pies, microwaved or not, and she's good to both her momma and her grandmother. She's also given me a biscuit recipe that might be better than my own grandmother's. Which makes me love her even more. She's helping us out during the afternoons so we can get all the great stuff out on the floor and ready for you, good shoppers, to grab it up.
And now for the man who probably needs the least introduction. Mr. Popularity, in the flesh, Bakari. The mad love child of Missy Elliot and the blue Wiggle, Bakari sports many hats around town. WUSC, SceneSC, Sweet Vans, Tweeter extraordinaire, yada yada yada... I'm not even really sure what all Bakari does. Somehow, his days consist of thirty hours instead of twenty-four. Luckily for us, he's managed to fit some time in on the weekends to come in and help all of you find your own unique style.
Now that you know everyone, come in and introduce yourself!
