Shop Hop 2013 Day One report......

Okay....Shop Hop 2013 Day One is in the books.  This is what things looked like right before I opened the doors this morning at 9:00.  I didn't manage to get everything together before I went home Tuesday night, so I was up at the crack of dawn this morning...in fact, in time to watch the news reports showing the first few cars roll across the Skagit River temporary bridge a little after 5:00 a.m.  Hooray!!  Then, over to the shop at 7:00 a.m. and *mostly* ready for Hoppers at 9:00 a.m.  We had over 400 folks picking up block kits and a busload of 36 happy Hoppers this afternoon.  Needless to say, by the time the retired guy and I got home tonight, I was pooped!  (He is the *graveyard shift* helping me close things up this year.  He caught on pretty quickly to the whole "This is our block ~  everything is included ~ are you doing the Treasure Hunt ~ here's our clue" thing!!)  It's always a lot of fun to see all of you having a good time visiting the shops.  Some of you, we only see during Shop Hop and maybe the Tri-County events.  Okay....I think I need to have some *bonding time* with my pillow.....another fun day in store for tomorrow!
