and I find the harder I work the more I have of it”
~ Thomas Jefferson
Those of us who are "self-employed" are often envied by those who work for "the man" so to speak. If you own a small shop, you will often hear, "Oh, I would love to do this!" What they do not see are the hours that go into making a small store work well especially if the owner (or owners) is manager, employee, auditor, merchandiser, etc etc etc!
We are lucky though to be able to follow a dream, and so this week I introduce you to another neighbor - Swainton's Corner - at the corner (get it?) of Goshen Swainton Road and Route 9.
and there is always free coffee - Keurig style - right inside the door!
Since they just opened last weekend, they are still looking for others who would like to join their entrepreneurial dream. There are 4 who are part of the "Corner", and at $2 sq.ft. and 5%, that is a good way to see if you want to dream along. I think this room would be a dynamic spot! There are also showcases and wall sections with adjustable shelves if you just want to try out the retail world.
Wandering around you will find a mixture of treats and treasures...
Furniture, finds, and fun stuff...
A touch of holiday, a seat of friends, a wall of treasures...
"I've found that what most people call luck is often little more than raw talent combined with the ability to make the most of opportunities."
