Benvenuto in Italia!

It's been 11 days since we landed in the great country of Italy! We are adjusting to the 6 hour time difference and the language barrier (who would have thought that EVERYONE spoke Italian! j/k), and are enjoying the beautiful climate. Sometimes we end up pinching ourselves when we wake up in the morning, barely believing that we got the awesomse chance to live over here!
So what does that mean for Camelot's Treasures? Well at the moment, we are still trying to figure out how everything is going to work. Italian law is a little more strict when it comes to business (home and not at home), so we will have to work a little harder to get it going. However I'm still hoping for a grand re-opening by Labor Day, if it's in the stars!
And I'm super psyched about some of the things that have been milling around in my head for the store. I've been coming up with some new designs, working on new projects, and gearing up (hopefully, I've got my fingers crossed) for an AWESOME Christmas season!
Anyway, keep your fingers (and toes!) crossed for us that we can get rolling again and keep checking back!

We're moving!

So I know it's been a while since I lost sat down and wrote on this blog, and I should have. I think at one point I actually did type up a whole article, but for some reason there was an error and it all went away - so I gave up.
Anyway, here I am now telling you that we are moving. To Italy. Yeah, I know right, ITALY! Wow!

Ok, excitement aside, with the move, unfortunately we have to close down for a few months. Partly because my husband wouldn't allow me to shove all of my wonderful items into the suitcases to fly with us, but MOSTLY because it's stressful enough already, adding store stuff would just be insane! BUT, let me tell you, I miss the store ALREADY! It's only been a month since I closed the shop's "virtual" doors, but I'm egging to jump back in with all the wonderful ideas I have.
That being said, I have not stopped working. Right now I'm working on some new projects that I would like to add to the store when I open back up. Like futon couches, bean bag chairs, etc. Super cute - will post pictures later! ANNNNNNNND before I left Maine, I purchased some special gifts to include with all future purchases - which I'm totally psyched about (I know you will be too)!
Well now you know what's going on in the world of Camelot's Treasures and my own personal world. Don't feel neglected if you don't hear from us in a while - we promise we will be back ASAP (hoping for a re-opening no later than Labor Day). Keep checking back to get updated and feel free to "LIKE" us on Facebook for fun updates - I'll be adding pictures and tidbits of information every once in awhile. We are at!/pages/Camelots-Treasures/133763559872?ref=ts.
So ta-ta for now (TTFN), enjoy your summer and we will see you soon! ~ Guin
