Wow! So hard to believe that Sept. 1 2018 celebrates 25+ years! (Yike ¼ of a century)

Aug. 31, 2012, after 19 wonderful years, I left the huge Elbow Dr. store.

At that time I gave very serious thought to retiring. Then I discovered this perfect little shop/studio. Semi-retired I am ~ so semi-retired hours too.

Yes one day I will retire. For now I love coming to work, seeing all of you, hearing about your families and keeping my little shop filled to the rafters with the coolest *stuff* I can find.

Now I’m celebrating 7 years on Fairmount Dr!

Thanks so much to each and every one.

You have made this 25 year adventure so worthwhile. xxx
