Preferred Dealer to the Stars!!!!

Hey All...
The Hico show was GREAT! We had such a great time and I will post tons of pictures later. I just wanted to do a quick post to let you know that I am now "The Preferred Dealer to the Stars"! Well, okay just to Jewel (the singer). Okay, well maybe not preferred, but a favorite! Well, okay the truth! She lives in Stephenville and came to the Homestead Show and bought a vintage prom dress from me! I am such a HUGE fan that I did not even know it! I really do love her music...but totally missed that it was her buying the dress. She approached me about the price and offered her a discounted price. She left, came back later and bought the dress! That evening while at a wonderful dinner provided by Mike and Brenda (the owners of Homestead and the show), they announced that Jewel was in that day and had bought from one of our dealers, Lisa (Digs). We all surrounded her table and asked tons of questions. She said that Jewel had written her a check. I jokingly said I was going to look at my checks because I knew Jewel would have bought some of my red JUNK! As I took the checks out (with everyone laughing at me), the last check in the stack was a check from Jewel. We all screamed and I had to bury my head in shame that I did not even recognize her. The next day I woke Tracy up to a Jewel song, played Jewel on my IPOD all day, walked the isles singing her songs...I was very obnoxious! I joked that I was going to do a post about being the Preferred Dealer to the Stars...not a joke any longer! Well, okay maybe a joke...but we had fun with it! The picture is the dress she bought.

  3. I can see Denis that you are still flying "High" and skipping to the tune of a Jewel song!!! LOL I am just jealous that I did not see her when she was in our booth! Of all the times to not have one of my blinged out guitars for sale!!! We had such a great time hanging out with sweet, cute Tracy...and oh yea, you are o.k. too!!! LOL xo xo xo Cathy aka GGJ

  4. I have all Jewels CD's she is a very good singer/songwriter. Her story of writing while living in a car homeless made me really follow her. She seems to be a beautiful person! I love her taste so congrats on selling a prom dress I bet you may see her wearing it in a performance!
