This week I made the decision to condense my businesses. We are moving New Baby New World into New Baby New Paltz.
These past 3 months, I have worked at Water Street Market, listening to the water fountain and loving my beautiful little store. I will miss it a little but it has turned stressful between staffing and stocking. In hindsight, I probably should have done this last spring but lured by the masses of New Yorkers in their stylish clothing and expensive, almost carelessly so, tastes, I stayed.
The thing that kicked me over the edge was having people go to the other store to buy something. The 'must-have' booties were always in the other store!
People asked me if I didn't feel spread thin, and I couldn't feel it before. Now, I am starting to feel the places where I am spread thin. It's going to feel so good to have Café Mama open, too! Like gathering all my children in the same room!
