It's the closing of the year, the finishing of old...

We decided last week that it's time to close the shop. So when we lock the doors on New Year's Eve, we lock the doors. Unless some odd thing drops out of the sky that will make the coffee world more viable in East Cupcake, we are totally done.  Enough, already.

In other news, a dear friend is closing a year and a half of hell.

Wow, what a suprise, will this give you lots of knitting time or will you be looking for a new enterprise?

Aww geez I'm sorry to hear this! Best of luck in your next adventure, whatever it may be.
I've always said, people need to drink more coffee, damn it.

WOW. Although not that surprised because I used to work there and new how hard it was at times. I'm really sorry that you put so much time into it and those people aren't partaking as much as they should. IT's their loss. They don't deserve the good coffee anyway. *grumble grumble*

But I'm so proud of you and all the work you and DH put into it. You've made some good friends along the way and created some really good quality stuff. You did your best. Now you deserve your rest. :) Take it easy and knit more by God. :D
