We moved our first van load of merchandise into the new shop tonight. It wasn't a full load, just some of our more fragile pieces that we didn't want to risk getting damaged. It seemed probable that if the boxes sat around while we were packing, they were more likely to get bumped or knocked over.
The boxes hadn't been packed too carefully since we weren't moving far, just a few city blocks, really. More than anything we're just anxious to get this move started, and get on to the next chapter in our lives.
As we closed The Gypsy Junkyard for the last time this evening, a wave of new energy came over all of us. We didn't spend a single moment lamenting the past year. We jumped into action, ready to start our new adventure -- The Thrifty Gypsy Trading Company.
