CLOSING LETTER TO OBY FAMILY OF FUN MEMBER.
On July 1, 1998, Joyce turned the key in the lock of the little house on Reynolda Road to be known as Originals By You. Since then, for the past 20 years, OBY has become Winston-Salem's FUN and Innovative Paint your own Pottery studio. FUN, SMILES, RELAXATION, AND FRIENDSHIP have been her goals through the years as thousands of painters have joined the OBY family.
Ending up here at the Summit Shopping Center on Jonestown Road, time as flown by as we celebrated the growth of children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and watched as early childhood children of the 90's are now returning with their own families creating more memories for decades to come.
We are thankful for the FUN times doing our second round after retirement from the real world. So it is with a great deal of sentiment and fond memories that we have decided to close the doors for the final time at the end of November.
Beginning Tuesday October 31 through our final day of painting on November 21 ALL BISQUE ITEMS IN STOCK WILL BE MARKED DOWN 50% AT TIME OF CHECKOUT with regular studio fee firing fees applying. FINAL PICK UP DATE FOR PIECES WILL BE BETWEEN 11 AM AND 2 PM ON NOVEMBER 24. AFTER WHICH TIME OUR DOORS WILL BE CLOSED AND ITEMS REMAINING WILL SADLY BE DISPOSED OF THAT EVENING.
Again might we express our appreciation to the thousands of you who have shared with us your smiles and FUN times during the years. And may your lives continue to be filled with the ability to smile, laugh, and enjoy your friendships.
Joyce, John, Layla
