Red Tape!

***Wow, the hoops they make you jump through to get a business going! We are making Halo Handmade a subsidiary of our S-corp, Meditran Transcription Inc., and boy is there a lot of stuff to consider!

We will rent booths to different crafters and sell new, locally handmade goods. The name of the store will be Halo, for Handmade and Local. Clever, huh? We have been keeping very busy working on the building, it is very old and needed a lot of cleaning and sprucing up. It's coming along very nicely, though. We're hoping for a May 1 opening date. ***I was so disappointed in Donald Trump yesterday when he signed that bloated spending bill. I think the Democrats r
