Paper Pickle Closed 1 more week....Re-opening August 27

We are both so happy about our new signage!
Great job done by Magnum Signs from Chatham.

It's funny how you can have every aspect of plan organized, calculated and mapped out, and then life happens.  These events can be happy ones or they can be sad, but in any event, plans have to be modified.

The plan was to re-open today (August 20) in a fresh, "new" store with a brand new partner, Homebaked Kitchen Company.  I blogged a week ago about the amazingly talented baker, who just happens to be my youngest sister, Jen.  These things have not changed.  We are SO excited to team up and show you what we've got.  I truly don't think Chatham has ever seen a store quite like ours!

A week ago, however, a very sad loss took place.  Only because I mentioned this to you publicly a few weeks ago, do I feel the need to talk about this intimately now.  This is to help prevent painful and awkward conversations in the future.  Jen and her husband lost their baby girl at 28 weeks.  They are doing as well as can be expected however a little more time is needed.  The Paper Pickle and Homebaked Kitchen Company will take one more week to get ready for our debut and opening.  I know you will understand.

In the meantime, if you are needing anything, please email me ( and I would be happy to co-ordinate a time to meet you at the store to accommodate your request.
