Do any of you remember my very first blog? I still laugh when I see it – & I still think I’m at least a bit nuts to do this.
Anyone in the art supply business will tell you that you’ll never get rich selling art supplies – so you either have to have a passion for the products, or you have to be a wee bit insane. In my case, I’d say both are true. It’s been a wild ride so far, that’s for sure.
The funny thing is, when I opened in February 2011, I thought I knew most of the artists who live in our area… WRONG!
I’ve met such incredibly talented, warm, generous people in the last 7 years. You have enhanced my life.
This Saturday is my way of saying thank you, and celebrating what you’ve given me. I feel like Art Central really has become a part of the community, and it’s because you believe in what we are trying to achieve.
Thanks are due in no small part to my incredible staff – wonderful talented people in their own right, and patient as anything to deal with me every day. Will, Melissa, Shauna, Kate – I appreciate you so much.
And thanks to our wonderful manufacturers and distributors who graciously give us amazing supplies for our gift bags and our play stations. We appreciate your generosity!
