Guess what we celebrate on
April 1st?
Well, living in a house full of extremely funny men, we celebrate it with some kind of fun spirited prank…
But more importantly it is the
OPENING
of
THE CRAFT CENTER
at this location
19 years ago!!!
We worried that it probably wasn’t the best day for a grand opening, being as it is a day of practical jokes and hoaxes.  But here we are – 19 years later.
I was very pregnant when we opened the doors and Taylor was so small he ran around with a fisher price tool belt on and felt like he built the place himself.
We have been around so long that many of you don’t know that we came here from a location just 4 miles away.  We have actually been in business 37 years!
Joy must have been just a child when she opened this place…

This is a little sampling of the things that have arrived. 
I wish that I were better with the layout to show these off.  It will surely get easier and faster for me to post as I do this more often.
Be sure to come in and check out the first shipment!
One of our great customers came in yesterday with a really good idea.
She brought in her storage bag.

She made this to store her seasonal framed pieces.

It is made from an upholstery remnant, labeled with a hand stitched tag and has a fleece bag insert that she wraps around her picture before slipping it into the bag for storage.

 Great idea Denise!  Thanks for sharing it with us.
