The fellow that owns his own home is always just coming out of a hardware store.


-Kin Hubbard

How true! I did not even walk into a Home Depot or Lowe’s before I was married with the joys of home ownership. But, I still never really enjoyed the experience until I met Sunset Ridge Home and Hardware Store. They have it right…the way to capture men and women and have both desiring to spend time among the nuts and bolts!!

This cozy, intimate hardware store is a go to place for beautiful wedding or Christmas gifts and unique home décor. You might not be looking for the exact washer to solve a plumbing problem…but if you are, find it quickly and then visit the many stations of beautiful décor and kitchenware.

It is one of my favorite VISIBLE small businesses in San Antonio! What is your favorite small business in your town??

Now, for Visible Monday I have pulled out some winter clothes that I do not wear often, because it is COLD HERE! That is big news and made decorating the house for Christmas so much fun!! We are scheduled to have freezing temps at night all week….sorry, to be so overjoyed at something many of you endure often…but for here, this is news and makes us feel like it is that special time of year. I was pondering the other day about how most Christmas songs must have been written by people who live up north, because they set scenes we rarely see in South Texas! Thank you for letting me gush over weather that is so rare for my neck of the woods!

Wow, thanks to one of you (a faithful reader) I just found this letter on the Sheyna website:

November 27, 2011
Thank you for visiting us. I am very sorry to let you know that we have decided to close Sheyna. While the team and I have met many wonderful people along the way, and had a terrific time building Sheyna, we have to face the fact that our business is not working out the way we had hoped. We considered keeping it going for a few more months to see if things got better, but that would be postponing the inevitable. And during the holidays, we didn’t want to promise orders and have to later refund them and disappoint gift-givers and gift-getters who were counting on us. (Any orders or gift cards you have placed that have not already been fulfilled will be fully refunded within the next day or so.)
Your designs, your comments, your positive feedback, and your business have meant the world to us. Thank you for that.
If you have any questions about an order please email me at md at sheyna dot com.

Sincerely,
Michael Dearing
Acting CEO and First Investor

Sheyna promised me a promotion and then did not notify me of their decision to close after I started the promotion.  So sorry everyone…I have removed the contest from the blog!!
