hanging around the shop this morning surveying the mess left from two weddings yesterday. there are flys buzzing around in here.

was at the stationary show on tuesday in desperate need of water, so i bought a bottle of Dasani for $3.75. a few little animals perished in the rainforest at my point of purchase. Dasani is the stupidest thing in the world. everyone knows it's owned by Coca Cola, and that they just bleach some Coke and put it in a blue bottle. fuckers.

so that being said, i have some sad news; today is the last day you can visit the old Saipua shop. it's the end of an era! this morning i was here around 8am sitting on the stoop with a coffee watching the first wave of Fairway traffic motor by. When we opened Saipua here 3 years ago it was so quiet.

over the course of this coming week we'll be packing up and moving everything to the new shop. we should be ready to open there on July 1st. so that means a month of quiet without you're lovely faces...

bye for now. I'm going to play with some beared iris I have and will show you some pictures later today of all the weddings shizzels.

I'm going to miss the old shop too, especially the strangely placed bathroom.

I can't wait to see the new place!
