A few minutes ago we locked the doors at Arrowhead for the last time in 2016. In a few hours it will be a whole new year.
2016 was a great year for us. We did murals and Oddmall and had a great year with the Downtown Canton Flea. We moved to much bigger location and added vinyl die cut stickers to our manufacturing and have learned to make our own tshirts. We even bought a new button machine. Melissa spent three weeks straight making the new "bun beanie" for Christmas and our latest beard oil was received well by all comers.
This fall I painted the building trim red and we've had a professional sign painter do hand lettered signs on our window and have ordered our first large handpainted business sign to replace the wooden letters I hung up when we moved in. Our vintage metal seats are stored in the basement for the winter but will be sanded down and painted yellow.
We've got plans for new handmade goods for 2017 and we're planning on doing as many craft shows and oddmall type conventions as possible. I'm thinking of doing a zine to help people find the coolest parts of downtown Canton, because there are a lot of really cool fun places to go and things to see. I really love Canton and I'm proud to call it my new home.
If you came by the store in 2016, thank you! Every person that walks in the door makes us feel like our hard work is paying off. I look forward to seeing you in 2017.
Happy New Year! Drive safe!
