@maxpete Thank you so much for the shout out! We are feeling slightly crazed, but we got this!

Square Champion

Congrats @mksavage!!!

Square Champion

Congratulations 🎉 👏 🎉 @mksavage 

Square Champion

@maxpete thanks for the props

Square Champion

@Lovewell a second location? Ughhhhh, hun congrats and I wish you all the best in the world! I run crazy and in circles in a 12k sq ft furniture store! I want to move to my garage! 😆 🤣 😂 no, really I love growth, I love and shop small only! You rock it out! 

Square Champion

Thank you, for the link! They are reaching out with POSITIVE feedback I asked for! 

Seller Community Mentor

Congratulations Michelle @mksavage!!  That's so awesome!  I definitely agree with this post!!  I have only read a fraction of your posts and have enjoyed them very much.

Square Champion

@Twpchair Thank you so so much! 

I feel like if I had a furniture store I too would want to move it to my garage. All three of us worked in retail before opening the coffee shop and, sometimes I was just not built for that! I loved people but retail is a whole different ball game for sure. You keep rocking it! 

One of our signs we have on our chalkboard right now says

"When you feel like quitting take a sip of your coffee (or tea) and remember why you started."

Square Champion

Congrats @mksavage and everyone else on such a great job....

Square Champion

Hello! I was looking for you and wanted to share with you my first hand built table and bench/chair set! Usually my husband has to step in and help with angles but I did it after 12 yrs 😆 🤣 😂 



@Twpchair looks so good!


@Lovewell of course!!


@dimo10 much deserved!

Square Champion

Oh my goodness!!! This made my day, my week, my month! Thank you so much @maxpete@Helen, and @isabelle (and so many others) for making this such an engaging, positive space for sellers. I have felt so supported and seen here, and am so incredibly thankful for each of the Super Sellers -- you guys keep me sane, keep me laughing, and make me a WAY better business owner. Okay, this is starting to sound like an Oscars acceptance speech...haha! All that to say -- love y'all, and this was so exciting!


@mksavage appreciate the love, and grateful to have you in the Community! You are amazing!

Square Champion

Congratulations to everyone! @maxpete thank you also for all your hard work and what is up with the allergies? I have never had any issues before and this year I'm taking meds daily 🙃 😪 not sure if the last emoji is a runny nose or eyes but I had both going on!


@Twpchair I've heard this from many others too! Just a bad season this year 🤧
