Week 2, Day 2
(A/N: Last week I did the incremental increase in Price Markup as suggested in the Challenge Rules. I decided to mix things up a bit and randomize the Price Markup amount which will then be used for the entire week.)
Pete used some of his profits to spruce up the store.
The poster he found at the Flea Market, Parfum L’esprit d’escalier, gives a nice environment bonus but doesn’t fit the decor of the store so he hid it behind this small planter.
Time to open the store!
Pete gets a call while he is minding the store.
Eric arrives and Pete briefly visits with him in between helping customers. Eric also helps crowd control by chatting with browsing customers while Pete handles sales or restocks.
That was really helpful. Thanks, Eric!
The report for the day shows that sales were steady throughout the day.

Pete puts on his handyman hat and repairs the toilet.
While finishing up, he notices a flash of red outside the window. It’s Judith Ward on a bike! Curious to see what she’s doing, he heads to the front of the store and notices the two paparazzi standing there.
Because they are so busy with their phones, they miss seeing her standing there for a few minutes before she walks off.
This makes Pete laugh. Silly paparazzi!
He heads outside to fill the automatic feeder and food dish.
Pete is busy restocking when he notices the empty food dish. The food went fast!
(A/N: Pete filled the bowl and went inside to restock. On the 3rd item is when I noticed the bowl was empty. The small dog wearing a red outfit might be a glutton.)
He checks on the animals and sees a raccoon among them. How interesting! Pete shines his laser pointer and discovers that the critter enjoys it as much as cats do.
After washing his hands, Pete prepares Tofu Tacos.
*OUCH!* That knife is sharp!
Because of produce from his garden he was able to prepare 8 servings for only §2 … what a BARGAIN!
Pete puts the food away before heading to bed, hoping tomorrow will be another good day for sales.
