TGIF Sale

Thank Goddess it’s Friday!  Or whatever you’d like to call it.
Remember that little sales table I introduced a few days ago?  I’ll show pictures of what’s on that table here every Friday until I’ve sold off everything that I need to remove from my inventory lists.

So here we go:

20180111_135517_highway 26254803045..jpeg
Foggy Island Candles: a gorgeous product with scents to trigger great Newfoundland memories.  The Stormy Nights candle is my favorite right now, and I have one burning while I’m at work quite often- smells like the cookstove, matches, and bread in nan’s kitchen.

SALE

At the beginning of each new fiscal year, I reassess what has been working for me and what hasn’t.  Lots of questions get answered with my sales reports and financial statements: how many people visited?  How much did people spend?  What did they purchase?  Where were they from?

Turns out that my 1,958 visitors were more interested in purchasing my own artwork than anything else that I sell in my shop.  So I have decided to discontinue the beautiful items that I sell made by other Newfoundland artisans and devote the retail space, my time, and my dollars, to my own works.

4, 3, 2, 1,… Happy New Year!

From the bottom of my heart, I would like to personally thank every single person for every single visit to Norton’s Cove Studio & Café this year.  I cannot express how important your custom is to my old and new business: every sale, big or small, adds up to a happy dance when I can pay my bills at the end of each week.  Every card sold, every cup of coffee drunk, makes a big difference to me and my staff members.

2017 has been a bit of a wild ride, with all my usual studio stuff happening plus building a new property; learning the ins and outs of running a restaurant has been exciting and a lot of work for me and my staff, family, and friends!  The studio has grown again, and I am very thankful today on my fiscal year end date to say that we’re doing okay.

Tonight we are almost full of reservations for supper, and as we ring in the new year, we’ll be taking just a little break at the café- returning on January 25th to resume service with new winter hours with a new winter menu (which I’ll post very soon!).  There won’t be any change in studio hours- I’ll be working away at new cards and mini-prints for February’s wholesale show, and cluing up 2017 paperwork for the taxman.

2018 Café Winter Hours
starting Thursday, January 25th

Thursday   10am-8pm

Friday   10am-11pm

Saturday   10am-8pm

Sunday Brunch 10am-3pm
