The end of December is always one of those transitional times: closing out one year, starting fresh with a new one. Most of us feel a range of emotions — mingled relief and sadness with the holidays past us, anticipation and wonder at what's to come.
Around here, we've had a big year. We celebrated our 2nd anniversary in June and we opened a store at the beginning of December. We've welcomed four new team members and said sad goodbyes to three others.
We attended new trade shows and returned to some familiar ones. We caught up with our existing vendors and added new ones to the family.
The biggest change, of course, is that our Burlington store is now closed. After 2.5 years at 3rd Ave, we made the leap to a bigger and better space at Market Street in Lynnfield. The energy and excitement at Market Street is wonderful, and we're already settling in well.
The new year will bring new opportunities, like the addition of our maker space, which will allow us to offer classes and workshops. We're also bringing in some new categories of products, like the pet toys and beds we got just before the holidays.
Thank you for being a Quinster and thank you for supporting us again this year. We know we have the best customers around and we're very grateful for that!
