Massive Disappointment. What now?!!

Was so excited this morning. Was so sure that we were going to be offered the lease on the shop and then Niki phoned at lunchtime with the soul destroying news that one of the company directors/partners had returned from his holiday and had said that he didn't want the shop to be used to sell food at all full stop. So that was that. Dream shattered. Again!!
So i spent lunchtime at work in silence instead of the usual jovial manner that i have. Couldn't even really discuss it with anyone, just mull it over in my head. It is a temptation just to have a gift shop. I know we could fill it with so many lovely things from all the talented people I've met on the craft forum, folksy and craft fairs but would it be enough. First would it raise enough capital to pay the bills plus 2 wages and secondly would we find it mind numbingly boring ? So hard to make a descision on something so important. My OH tells me there are 30 shop units to rent in Rugby, but would we get lost in a busier town? My head aches just thinking about it.
On a lighter note i have cracked on with the tooth fairy pillows tonight and forced myself to stay away from the craft forum. Until now!!! Have worked out if i make 35 and sell them all that will just cover the cost of the table in Milton Keynes! Must be easier ways to get rich! xx


  1. Sorry to hear that you were let down again.I'm sure everything will come together(probably when you least expect it)You have a great concept and good ideas are always worth fighting for.

  2. Hi, I am sorry you were let down re premises. I am wondering why Rugby as Daventry is quite a busy town these days. (Know it well, went to school there many years ago and OH comes from there too) And I had a shop there for a short while.

  3. Thanks for the comment. Rugby was mentioned by my boyfriend as there are no other suitable units in Daventry. You are right Daventry can be quite busy. I think he's trying to get me to settle in Rugby as well so that i might consider moving there!!
