I am Joining LaurieAnna's Team!!!!!!
Okay....many of you know how much I love LaurieAnna and her store in Canton. I started shopping with Laurie when she was in the yellow house and I immediately fell in love. We began chatting when I visited her store and found out that we had both worked in banking...AND at the same bank, oh so many years ago. We began talking about people we know and found we have several friends in common. The relationship has grown and I consider Laurie and Willy to be very special and very dear friends now. A few months ago, Laurie graciously asked if I would like to set up in her shop during one of her shows. I nervously loaded up the trailer and headed to Canton. I had a blast, sold lots of stuff and met so many wonderful people. When the show was over, I told Laurie that I loved being a part of that energy and to let me know if she ever needed any help. She quickly asked if I was serious and I (along with my friends Tracy and Michael) were at the next show helping customers and once again, having a blast. After the show, Laurie asked if I had any interest in working in the shop regularly. I explained that I had a full time job....but the thought of joining the team for one weekend a month was very intriguing. We had several conversations and with her business growing leaps and bounds....I have accepted the opportunity to Manage the Shoppe for Laurie! I am so very excited. She has put together an incredible shoppe with an incredible team...and I feel blessed to be welcomed into the family. This will be my first show and want everyone to come out and say hello. As most of you know, a few times a year Laurie totally guts the shoppe and starts over. She and Willy have been there all month (along with several helpers) introducing new merchandise for the spring and meticulously giving the entire shoppe an overhaul. The pictures above are from her blog and this is what Laurie wrote: "Truck after truck, pallet on top of pallet filled with Spring goodies. Lots of pretty floral stems, new bolts of fabrics, scads of new Spring decor, lots of new tabletop, new lighting, tons of fabulous new Linen and Gauze clothing, pretty new bedding, new styles of farmhouse nightgowns and pajamas, new lines of candles, new jewelry, and of course loads of vintage treasures......there is just so much to see. Come prepared to spend some time!" I am so very excited to invite you all to LaurieAnna's March 1st - 4th. We will be ready to help in any way we can. Wish me luck and I will see you all soon!
