Hi, everyone.

I'm going to dash off a quick message here and then update it as often as I can while we go through this coming ordeal.

The store suffered a major fire Thursday night around 9pm. The first floor was burned, though we haven't been inside yet to see how badly.

The cellar seems okay, except for any water damage that may have occurred.

Two of the three goldfish survived! The littlest one, I found, succumbed this morning. The little white catfish is fine, too. They are in a tank in my kitchen at home.

Next week, we will have the phone number back up and running, so I can be contacted directly--978-745-9524.

Right now, our plans are to rebuild and continue serving our friends, the customers and artists who have been so loyal to us over the thirty years that the store has been in existence, and the twenty years I have been there.

Once all the insurance adjusters have done their thing, we'll be able to assess the customers' orders and start contacting people.

IF YOU ARE READING THIS AND HAVE WORK AT THE STORE, PLEASE CALL 978-745-9524, SOMETIME STARTING MID-WEEK. (The phone won't be activated for a few days.) This is in case order slips have been destroyed, because I would have no other way to reach you!

Thanks for all the kind words and offers of help from customers, friends and family...we really appreciate it!

As devastating as this kind of loss is, your strength to go forward and rebuild is inspirational. I hope you chronicle the coming days and weeks ahead in words and pictures here on your blog.

And of course, don't hesitate for a second to put out a call for the volunteer Art Corner army as the new store emerges from the ashes.

All our love,

J & J

Wendy and Chuck:

What Jim said. :-D

I'm still gobsmacked by this devastation, but we'll be here if you need us. We can come running wherever and when ever you need us.
