Hi all,
Here is what I have been up to lately...........Massive shipping of "Secrets of Rusty Things"!!!!!
We received the large shipment of books (200) on Wednesday! We had received 100 last Friday which we started shipping early this week! So far we have shipped over 100 packages, over 20 people had come in to pick up books!
I want you to note, I use the word "we". For those who don't really know me & The Artists' Nook, it is ususally "me, myself & I" Recently, I have had Whitney coming in twice a week to help out. SHE HAS BEEN A LIFESAVER! I could not have done this huge project without her! Thank you, Whitney!
Last weekend, Michael deMeng was at a Book Expo in New York which is a trade show for book store owners. He was doing demonstrations in F & W Publications (his publisher) booth. Michael's book "Secrets of Rusty Things" is currently the #1 selling craft book in the U.S. today! Yeah! They have sold 10,000 copies of the book and are into their second printing! Congratulations, Michael!
