To everyone who came out to shop and visit!!
I had a great two days visiting with friends I had not seen in a while and meeting new people who stopped by. Of course, cleaning out some of the overcrowded shelves was a huge bonus!
Thank you all for your support!
There are still some pieces left, so if you missed the event just get in touch and let me know what you want!
I must share a story that makes me smile every time I think about it. A few weeks ago, I decided it was time to clean out some drawers. I have a rather large… ok, I can admit it – “junk drawer” in my kitchen, packed with a variety of useless STUFF – party, pics, candles. wine openers, corks…well, the wine opener is not useless…anyway, while purging, I came across a set of ceramic napkin rings with tassels that match my Classics collection, done for Giftcraft at least 8 years ago. “Time to let those go”, I thought. I had yet to use them. So I put them in the studio sale.
Somewhere around 2:00, on that ugly, rainy Saturday, an adorable young couple came through my door. The woman greeted me with a huge smile and announced that she was so happy to meet me! Of course, I hugged her immediately! WOW! A fan!! They had driven all the way from Tampa on this nasty day to visit little old me and my studio – my first thought was, “uh oh… I hate to disappoint!” They were hopeful that I could replace a broken piece from their Classics collection. (One look at hubby explained that story). Unfortunately, nothing from that collection is still available. I immediately remembered the napkin rings from my cleaning session at home and could hardly wait to snatch them up and give them to her! Her eyes welled up with tears as she broke out her phone to show me photos of how she sets a beautiful table with all the dishes. It just made my day that I had those on hand to give to someone who really wanted and would use them! Working as an artist in the commercial world I rarely get to meet anyone who enjoys the fruits of my labor, so thank you, Linsey and Travis for making the trip and for making my day!
Another highlight of my weekend was sending three dog beds off to a good home! These adorable puppies tried them out and decided they liked them!
Thank you Linda!
