It's a new week here at Auburn, and I must say that my heart is overflowing with love for you all, dear Auburn Family. What an outpouring of love, support and community! I am truly overwhelmed and grateful! I remember writing the poem below when the 'Journey of Construction' first began: Ode to a Construction Sign O, sign with letters black and redWhy dost thou fill this girl with dread?A message of caution for all to know, foreshadowing many months of woe!Yet- wait! Behold! A gleaming light!Just down a few blocks and to the right,A lovely store with lights aglowIs open for business and won't let things slow.The words may say "closed" but please, fear not,The crews have found a...

Speaking Out

August 31, 2017

As another summer comes to a close, I can safely say that this has been a year of challenges for my darling little shop. On the first day of January, I found an envelope under the door with a letter from the Region of Waterloo detailing the construction that would occur from April- November 2017.

Woes of a Vintage Girl

May 19, 2017

I mopped the floors of the shop this morning with a heavy heart, as the construction dust seems to seep through the doors, windows and walls like a silent plague. It's strange- as the door has not opened much this week. I felt the sadness descend- and, with it, if I am to be completely honest- anger. As I lovingly care for my beloved store, one that I have tended to with passion and heart, it feels like the odds are against me. I'm not awfulizing- I'm being honest about the state of mind that so often happens to small business owners when their livelihood is amidst the chaos of construction. Right now, the loneliness that I have often read...
