When family and home have to come first
Its with much sadness that I have to close my beloved shop. Its not a decision I have made easily and have shed more than a few tears of late trying to make the final call to the Landlord. Its been a glorious if not stressful ride for the last year but I really didn't appreciate how much time and energy it would take. My family and my health have suffered and you don't get a second chance with either of those.
I've been lucky to have the opportunity to realise my dream and whose not to say I might even return to it down the line, but for now I am taking a bit of rest when I close up. I will then return to a job I know well, with people I like and respect and which will give me much more time to spend with my young family.
I've met some pretty amazing people over the last year in Exmouth and I will certainly miss all the chats and laughs. I think good old fashioned customer service is sadly lacking in this country these days so hope at least some of those customers will appreciate the service I gave them.
Its not the end of The White Approach brand and after a break I will be returning to select fairs and events. I might even get my website back up and running properly too.
At the moment I am feeling very fragile and just a bit of a failure but I know I have made the right decision for my family and myself and hope I will feel it is the right decision at some point soon.
Anyway, the last day I will be open is .Saturday 29th March so if you are in the area, please do pop in for a browse and a chat before then.
Many thanks indeed to all the lovely friends and customers who have taken the time to search out my little tucked away piece of heaven over the last year. I have truly appreciated each and every sale.
