The Fruit AtThe Bottom Of The Bowl

Remember that Edgar Allen Poe short story where the murderer tries to erase all signs that he had been at the scene and is found there, gibbering, trying to wipe off the fruit at the bottom of the bowl?  Well, having made my decision to change my business name, I find myself in in a  similar position -- and, friends, it ain't pretty!  Here it is, Wednesday morning -- I have a minor show coming up this Friday afternoon and have just been struck by the realization that my price tags and packaging all bear the old name.  I've been congratulating myself on having printed up some temporary business cards with the new name, but I realize that cards are only the beginning.  Besides tags and packaging, I need to transfer my jewelry pieces to a new Etsy shop and inform customers and Etsy "likers" about the move.  I need to inform the State of NC of my new DBA -- don't know if I'll need a new tax ID.  I need to inform the shows I have been accepted to about the new name as well as the shows where my application is still pending.  Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera......... (Plus stuff I haven't even thought about.  Sheesh!)
