Rob and I would like to wish everyone the Happiest of Holidays and a Joyous, Gentle New Year!
Rob has been working on a very tedious yet satisfyingly methodical task the past couple of weeks. He is bringing the raw pine and maple lumber into the shop then planing, chopping and drum sanding all of it. While he works on this, he’s working his way through the classics on audiobooks and is currently listening to “David Copperfield” with “The Three Musketeers” up next!
The next round of orders will be ready in February, and of course, any extras will be listed here with an email as well as Facebook and Instagram posts a couple of days before the sale. 😊
Rob, drum sanding bands and enjoying classic literature - i.e. Multitasking!
If you are following @lehaysvintageshop on Instagram, you will have noticed that I am dipping my toe into the Reels (short video clips). This takes some getting used to. For example, I didn’t realize that when I take video, the sound also comes through on the post! I thought whatever music I chose would block the unwanted video sounds. Like I said, I’m new at it….. So, one of the first little Reels that I did featured Rob’s carriers in the shop and while Ella Fitzgerald was singing as only she can, the tape gun made a most undignified noise! I’m so sorry, Ella!
I have several items to list from my most recent jaunts, these will be coming along after the holidays as I have been rather distracted with my other favorite pass time this week: BAKING!! I use old family recipes and sometimes I even use vintage kitchen tools!
The Shop Critters
As you can see, each employee has a unique viewpoint on the start of winter:
Buzz will nap in his Buzz Buggy until summer. He sends his regards.
(Since he insists this stay in the living room, we did our best to make it part of the holiday decor)
Jonesy, Head of Security is taking a hard pass on winter and is fully retired as of the December 17th snowstorm.
Zoe is handling the details from her home office.
Porter, General Manager is all about increasing enthusiasm and morale with more WALKS!
