Vincent Van Gough once defended his painting technique with the statement, “I am always doing what I can’t do yet in order to learn how to do it.” Well we don’t have many critics for customers at Tabitha’s Place, but we are definitely still in active learning mode. A peek in the front door will reveal that changes are on-going, and each one gets us a tiny bit nearer to that unattainable efficiency for which all shopkeepers strive.
Thanks to the help of our volunteers, the back room has been sorted and organized and any day now we’ll sweep the floor and call it clean. Of course, as it’s our sorting bay, it will get messy again, and we’ll clean it again; but for now, our volunteers have turned the monster pile into an organized inventory and we could not have done it without them.
Now that we know what we have, we’re thinking of expanding several sections of our store, including making a dedicated electronics corner. We have lots of quality vintage stereo and video equipment, and we hope to create a working display. That will involve a bit of shelf-building, some wiring, and a good dollop of elbow grease, but we have both the time and the resources to do it right.
