“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened”
It’s no wonder I share a birthday with the silly man with a rhyme up his sleeve. Dr. Suess knew what he was talking about when he said those wise words above. He’s full of age old wisdom told in such a fashion, even the youngest at heart understand. That’s the way I feel today as I write this blog post, sharing our very last video tour of the shop in Hillsborough, NC. It’s not like the shop is closing. It’s not like we’re done. But it is the ending of one chapter and the beginning of another and sometimes that can be a roller coaster of emotions.
I think back to when we first opened the shop. The many hands that helped put that shop together. The memories. Then we opened the doors and y’all poured in. We made friends. We laughed. We cried. We welcomed new babies. We said goodbye to loved one. We became family. Often seeing each other more than we see our ‘other’ friends and family. We had a set appointment, once a month to reunite, share stories, and inspire one another. And we absolutely loved every minute!!
But, guess what folks??? That doesn’t stop here!! It may be our last sale in Hillsborough, but we are building an even better Rusted Roots for y’all in Mebane and we can’t wait to have all of you join us there! The times we will share on the farm and the new friends we will make too!
So, without further ado… our final video tour of the Rusted Roots shop, Hillsborough. <sniff sniff. YAY! see, I told you it was a roller coaster of emotions!>
We are so excited to see all of you this weekend! And we are also pretty excited about two new items that will be in the shop this weekend!! In case you didn’t get to watch the video. We are excited to have these farmhouse flannels in the shop! No two are alike! Each one distressed and made uniquely for YOU! We are totally mad for plaid at Rusted Roots, especially when its paired with a comfy legging and some cute boots!
And we are super excited that we were able to get our Christmas truck tees in stock in time for all of you this weekend! Our staff wore these shirts at our November sale and tons of you were asking about them in the shop and online. So, we fixed that!! We have a load of them for the shop and a load of them for all of you here online! We will sell the shirts on Facebook and Instagram for ONE DAY ONLY!!! Sunday, December 4th! Be sure notifications are on for our page so you don’t miss it!! They will be shipped out Tuesday, December 6th so you’ll have plenty of time to break ’em in before Christmas!!
Again, we can’t wait to see all of you this weekend for one last hoorah in Hillsborough!! I’ll be dipping pretzels this week and the hot chocolate will be brewing!! See ya soon!!
