In times past, English servants were required to work on Christmas—serving the family for the holiday. Their special day was 26 December—Boxing Day—when they would receive their presents and have a day of ease.
For me, I begin my next buying trip today. As you read this, I am headed to Western Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio and other parts of the Near-Midwest. On the hunt to replenish my shop after the Holiday rush, I hope to find lots of nice things for the New Year. During December, many people stay-focused on buying gifts for others; come January, they’re ready to buy something for themselves! Thus, my rush to find new stock to keep the shop ever-changing and interesting. New goods should be in-store around 1 January.
From 26 December through New Year’s Day, LEO Design is open from noon to 6:00 pm daily.
