Yay SPRING! As we move into a fresh, new season, we take this time to THANK YOU ALL for your positive contributions to our nookie community, your courage and persistence to keep making your handmade biz a reality, and for choosing The Nooks to further your retail success!

We all made it through HOLIDAY,  WINTER and now we are here, together, preparing for the next big wave of craziness in the maker biz… SPRING / SUMMER 2019! Many of you have shared BIG news and changes in your biz, have grown into a larger nook size or smaller, and have completely re designed the vibe of your brand. ALL growth is GOOD, and your enthusiasm to THRIVE is contagious. THANK YOU for being open, honest and sharing your celebrations (and some hard learnings, too!) with all of us.

This internal business newsletter is to highlight some new and approved systems to support your business at The Nooks. To support our efforts in supporting all of you, between 2 retail locations, and to just have things live in one place … YOUR NOOKIE DASHBOARD!
