Good evening. This is Ikeda.
Today is the last business day of 2022.
We would like to thank everyone who came to our store even though we just opened, and those who purchased online.
thank you very much.
Business hours in 2023 will begin on Tuesday, January 3rd.
There will be more items on sale as ``Hatsuuri'', so please take this opportunity to get your hands on them.
Also, we will be adding more sale items online from January 2nd (Monday), so if you live far away, please take a look when you have time.
Please note that we will be closed as usual on January 5th (Thursday).
Items purchased online by January 2nd (Monday) will be shipped sequentially from January 3rd (Tuesday), so please be patient.
Information on the beginning of the year is here.
For that reason, I'm sure there are only people who aren't interested, but I'd like to take a moment to look back on 2022 as a record.
I retired from my previous job at the end of 2021 and started my own business in January 2022, so the past year has been a whirlwind.
From consulting with select brands, looking for properties, DIY interior design, financing, etc. for the first time.
Although it was a lot of struggle, it was a rich experience.
However, if you ask me if I would like to do it again, I would honestly say that I don't really want to do it.
It's been about 5 months since we opened successfully, but to be honest, we haven't gotten much recognition at all, and I'm worried.
However, I am doing what I love, so I will continue to enjoy it even though I have to worry about it.
When I run my own business independently, I am once again amazed at the fact that I am able to run a business, whether it is another shop, a gallery, a cafe, a restaurant, etc., regardless of the type of business.
How many years, how many decades, is truly amazing.
Although we are at a scale where we can always go bankrupt if we want to, we need to learn from our predecessors and be able to operate for a long time.
Having said that, I hope that in 2023, I will be able to move forward at my own pace without rushing.
I don't know if anyone has read this far, but we will continue to move forward in 2023 as "en -en-", so we look forward to your continued support.
Well then, I wish everyone a happy new year.
