Our first open date of the new year is this Saturday, January 5th. Over the holidays, we continued to work on expanding on-the-floor displays and processing type and things. Recent weather related issues have been a distraction. Ongoing heavy rain storms with high winds have wreaked havoc on the roof and elevator operation. Repairs have been made and all seems better now, but time and nature will tell.
2018 for the Barrett’s was a year of ups and downs! From travels to various events, meeting new letterpressers and renewing past acquaintances to some some significant medical and mechanical misfortunes. But 2019 is a clean slate, here’s hoping for smooth travels and great health for the year. Of course it’s winter now and it does get chilly on the 4th floor. Occasionally the windows frost up here’s the view recently looking west over the Mt. Tom range.-JB
