It’s official! Grandma’s Bait is once again open in downtown Staunton! Despite the forecast of snow and rain, many of you came out to help us celebrate our dream of reopening the wonderful store that so many of you have come to know and love for years.
It was a wonderful day. I was surrounded by young and old and all of those in between and I knew in my heart that we had done the right thing in pursuing this venture. My Dream Team is bigger now and I am incredibly humbled by their love and support.
Oh sure, we have a lot of hard work ahead of us, but with your presence yesterday, you showed us that we can look forward to many happy years serving the children and their families who delight us with their patronage. After all, without you, our dream would be nothing. It truly takes a village and I am so proud to call Staunton my home. I am overjoyed to call each of you “friend,” and I look forward to meeting more of you in the days and weeks ahead as we settle in to our new venture.
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart for your support and love! You make my dreams a reality!
If you haven’t had a chance to meet Clarese, please stop in and introduce yourself. She will be the face of Grandma’s Bait and my right hand. I know you will just love her and I am beyond thrilled to see her talents blossom at Grandma’s Bait. You will also see the friendly faces of Melody and Sarah when Clarese is taking a day or two off and they will be filling in as needed.
If you haven’t met Erin and Susan of Pufferbellies, please drop in their flagship store and introduce yourself to them and let them know you were in Grandma’s Bait!
We have posted over 100 photos of the festivities and the new showroom floor of Grandma’s Bait on Facebook. Please, please join us there and become a follower. You can see many of the wonderful items that we have for sale and you might even spot a tot and friend or two that you know!
Thank you to my loyal staff at LTD 7 and LTD 7.2 for supporting me as I launched this latest dream. Thanks for loving on me, holding me up, and carrying the torch when I was away. I simply could not do what I do without each and every one of you! Much love and gratitude!
Finally, thank you to each and every customer friend who enters any one of our stores, even to just say “Hello!” Your support and suggestions and dreams are as important to us as our own! We love you to the moon and back!
I will see you all soon!
Happy Spring, Everyone!
Living the Dream,
