Time has been flying and I enjoy every minute of it. I have said this before and I will say it again....
*Follow your passions*
*Do what you love and love what you do*
My philosophy in my shop will be to carry and sell wine, beer and local products that I can stand behind and support. It is fact that may never be the case 100% of the time, but I will do my best! I must balance the products I love with the products that my guests love as well. My beer selection here went from a handful to 28 labels, and is still growing! I have run out of fridge space and will need to find another beer cooler soon! The other thing I have been doing is bringing in my favorite local wine producers. My wine selection has grown in numbers as well. Bringing in the wines that I support is such a blessing. I love being able to introduce, taste and sell customers these wines. I have also begun to incorporate local products into my menu as well such as Republic of Jam, Flying Barracuda and Strohmayer Fruit & Nut Co. I must also mention the wine classes that I have introduced to this community with the help of Charlotte from The Wine Key! She does an amazing job with her students and I look forward to hosting many more classes with her!
With having a month under my belt I feel like I have just scratched the surface of this business. I have met many wonderful individuals, couples and families in Urban Decanter. I feel like I am building some great relationships and am building a business that will reflect my passions.
Again- Thank you to everyone who has been supporting me. It means the world to me! Going into a small business is scary, but its where my heart is.
