Ready, Set, Wait!

The Mercantile online store is open for buisiness! Yay! Hooray!

Here's a YouTube link that we put in our first newsletter expressing how we really feel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xos2MnVxe-c

There is still so much to do. There were, of course, errors in the newsletter (ack!). Be we've learned good lessons, and are adding fabulous merchandise every day. I'm working on a press release. It is scary but fun. I don't know how artists do it - here is my heart and soul - love it or stomp on it, as you will.

today was DR land Clean Day. We're having our annual Open House September 13th, and are getting ready. Things are looking pretty good around here!

I keep mooching books from Bookmooch even though I have about 20 minutes to read each night (before I fall asleep and dream of Mercantile products and descriptions). The stack is getting higher and higher, and even falls over occasionally. What fun! (the book part, not the falling over part).

That's all for now. Gotta go do math and figure out percentages of markup. Some things about running a business are much more fun than others. Percentages? Guess what category THAT falls under? Here's a hint: I flunked algebra twice in high school, and later went to art school.
