Well it's been about almost 7 months in already with my friend at the floral shop, and I must say, this Shop Girl is enjoying every minute. Not only is there the three day weekend, but many of my past talents with my visual background come in use, not to mention my OCD with keeping the Dame organized and on schedule. It's like my ying to his yang. And you know me, I love seasonal decorating so it was quite fun to see the shop transition into a autumn feel. Alas, this week, most of the autumn goods are flying out of the shop. People seem to be getting back into seasonal decorating again. It's also a nice feeling I have to admit, getting to know all the local shoppers and neighbor characters, opposed to big box and mall shoppers, which was what I experienced at my last three positions with part employers. One afternoon a guy even prepositioned me one day, catching me off guard, which is rare... I didn't have a come back.
The Dame had some of the best, most perfect pumpkins I'd ever seen. Huge, perfectly round and the best long stems on them. I got several for my mother's place and for the Casa. A friend of the shop locally grew all our mums and pumpkins. The Chrysanthemums were insanely huge and at excellent prices. The last of them left the shop today, as we prepare for the holiday season next.
