Good News, Bad News

Let's do the good news first: despite the almost slithering heat and the threat of storms, we had the best Burlington we've ever had, hands down. We were so busy until noon that I didn't get the chance to go and shop until after lunch, but still, I was pleased with what I found:


We got a surprise visit from BFF Heather, got to hook up with Denise Griffith from Feather Your Nest, saw many of our other favorite Ohio customers, and sold a record number of Laura Letters. Joe had the good sense to set up all our ephemera in the barn behind our space, which everyone seemed to love. The ice cream guy hadn't sold out when I finally got over there. And it looked like we were all packed up just as the thunderclouds were gathering on the near horizon.
And then the bad news. No trailer lights. Then no van lights. Then the engine made the saddest little sound. And died. Just that little click-click-click which means you're goin' nowhere.
There is nothing lonelier than a dead van in an empty field....
Check back later this week as we continue the melodrama! xo

Well, glad you sold well and bought well, at least. There is an upside! Hoping your week is going sunnier. I start work TOMORROW and have this house cleaned top to bottomn, so O'm strangely calm.

My worst fear. Truck troubles on the road. I am glad it happened after the show at least. We look forward to hearing the rest of the store. Love Dan & CJ
