Dear Blog Readers,
We have become the kind of blogger we never wanted to be — the kind who has a "read our blog" button on our website but the newest post is months old. We blame Facebook for this — it's so much easier to write something there and we seem to have more followers there than we did here on the blog. Still, we can't quite bring ourselves to give it up altogether yet — so instead, we're posting this little note to explain our lack of current entries. Please do check out our facebook page, we think it's fun, if not quite as long form.
sincerely, the Joie de Blogger.

Customers Just Want to Have Fun
Almost every day a customer approaches us with an "I really hate to tell you this" expression on their face, pointing to the coffee spill or the ice cream spill. Here in the store they don't take the wine spill as seriously as even though we have a French name, and that name roughly translates as "joy of life" - it's not easy to believe we would be drinking red wine before . . . lunchtime. Ellen, a customer in Shelburne, Vermont, sent me a photo of a wine spill she recently bought at Joie . . . which nicely illustrates just how realistic that one looks in the right environment. Red wine, white carpet - perfect!
