Following my post about the Salvage Studio, I received a very nice email from Beth Evans-Ramos, one of the owners:
It was fun to see you and Bob on Saturday. Thanks for dropping by and visiting.
Your blog posting about our transition is absolutely fab! You totally get us and what we are doing. Your writing was eloquent. And being in the same paragraph with Rachel A. is an honor unto itself. I hurt for her. But I’m with you – I believe in her vision, beauty and grace. Starting and maintaining a business is very hard work. Growing a business is trickier yet.
We really appreciate your support in spreading the word about the Salvage Studio, why we closed our traditional retail venue, and that our business is healthier than ever. It has been exhausting to explain to customer after customer that we are not closing the door on everything. We are just warming up!
I respect your business savvy, and admire how much you support so many women in business.
We’ll see you in June! (at Farm Chicks)

Beth, my dear, your writing is quite eloquent, as well... I can only imagine just how many times you girls have tried to explain your motives and methods for this decision. So many people will never 'get it' - but you can quote my post and send it out to all of your customers if you'd like! I thank you for your kind words... it is my pleasure to promote others who work so hard to succeed.
