Friends began to appear!
(Translation: Joe and I were struck this weekend by how many connections we've made through our little port in cyberspace. Case in point -- Dan and CJ, of True North Interior Design and Antiques. We knew Dan by site from going to auctions, but one day at Allegan, he came by with his lovely wife, CJ, who happened to read our blog. We've been fast friends ever since. They introduced us to a new customer, Patrice, who just opened the awesome shop pictured above, Elements, in Grand Rapids. Patrice was telling us over dinner that on her first day, a customer had come in with a gift -- an awesome metal letter "E." This customer was none other than Glenda of Junkin' in My Pink Cadillac and Mishawaka Antiques, who had found Patrice through links from our blog to Dan and CJ's! This is just one of so many examples. How fun is that?)
Allegan turned out to be an terrific show. Temperatures were high, but the humidity gave us a little break.
Many thanks to all who came out to support the show. So what about you? Are you ever surprised by the connections your blog makes to other kindred spirits? Leave a comment and let us know!! Now it's on to Kane. Check back later this week for a preview. And check out this article on Midland Arts and Antiques on Apartment Therapy while you've at it! Click on the link in our sidebar for Midland details. Thanks go to our dealer pal Diane Passi for pointing it out.
OMG!! Wouldn't that be fun? And on 9/11 no less. xxoo
