I get slow during the summer and on saturdays no one comes in (Almost always) after 3pm.

So for the extended holiday weekend I am closing at 3.

Anyone else closing early?

We close for the holiday long weekends (memorial day, july 4th, labor day)- no one comes in.

We closed for saturdays for the month of august this year to test the waters - only fell short of last years dollars by a little bit - not enough to worry about and enjoy the 3 day weekends for a month :D

We take the opportunity to have more than 1 day a week off on holiday weekends... Memorial Day, July 4th week, Labor Day and Columbus Day.

Closed Sat-Mon countdown started a little while ago!!

The business I may miss does not make up for the relaxation and recharging I get from the needed time away from the shop.

I haven't had a day off (other than the half a snow day I got this year and I'm not counting Sundays) in over a year... so yes! Usually I'm open holiday weekends but never have any business unless it's scheduled pick up.

I am so ready for this weekend. :D

Open reg hours on sat and closed sunday/monday. We are usually open 7 days. Going to enjoy the last weekend of summer. The heck with framing. For 2 days anyway.

Closing both Saturday and Monday. I'm very much looking forward to it, even though I have no plans really. There is this ribfest going on down in Indy this weekend. I may have to stuff myself.

Closing at 6 today (Friday) and not opening again until the 12th of September.

This week (of Labor day) has been DEAD for since I openened shop. Might as well have some fun.

BTW closed Saturday for the month of August and beat last year's August. Have Fun!

That is the way I'm playing it. When I get caught up if the parking lot is low or empty, I'm out of here. If people are coming in, I'll hang around.

Kinda redundant isn't it? isn't it? isn't it? isn't it? </font>[/QUOTE]Rogatory, I think Cptn. English would have a convulsion if I used the term "Videoing Film"... of corse that could be weird too....

But I think the term "making a film" is now meaning actual 35mm or 72mm film instead of a video tape which is what we are using...

Or would you be more comfortable with "Going to be exposing Betamax tape to electrons aligned in such a way that they show me teaching fabric wrapping"?

How about, "I screwed around at the shop today making stuff for Monday when I'm having a few people over to hang out and maybe film something..."?
