SoBo Style -- So Long, Farewell!

Last week, Joe and I said a fond farewell to SoBo Style, Katie Palmer and her staff. After 14 successful years, Katie decided it was time for new adventures. When the news reached her loyal customers, the store was virtually sold out in just 2 days. That's how much she's going to be missed. We still remember the first time we met her. She was our first customer when we we did the Springfield Antique Show for the first time. I can still remember her turning to her dad and saying, "I'm gonna buy a lot here!" And she was true to her word. That day and in the 14 years that followed. Katie, we send all good wishes your way. And many thanks. xo -- Sandy and Joe
