Welcome to Hattitude Tea Room Gift ShoppeBlog

Hello, I am joining the rest of the world that seem to now be blogging. This is my very first blog and I want to share with you my background and my story.
I worked in the corporate world for many, many years and was downsized at the end 2003. I was determined to never work in the corporate world again and so after a year or so of trying to decide how I would spend the rest of my working life, I decided it was time to try my hand at retailing. After my downsizing, my good friend and I both decided to open a local Red Hat chapter. Therefore, my foray into the world of retail became a Red Hat venture. It has been been quite an exciting and daily event for me. It is such a joy and so rewarding when red hat sisters walk into my shop and are excited about the merchandise selection I have. I personally have helped several woman get their life back because of their involvement in our group. How rewarding to me!!
My next venture is opening my tea room. I'll keep you posted on that topic and the struggles we are having. I know our perseverance will pay off and you can then come in, hang your hat or wear your hat and have a cup of tea and more!
I look forward to hearing from you!
