Kane Report: Marvelous Megillicutti; Grayslake Coupon

Kane Report: As the calendar slowly but surely turns into December, I find myself with a vague sense of dread growing. Most of this is due to the weather -- the possibility of snow and ice just add another layer of uncertainty to the stratification that always exists in this business. Plus, a number of our show neighbors take the month of December off for various (lame!) reasons, like family commitments. Blah-blah. OK! Just kidding. But we do miss our regular pals for real. While the weather turned out to be reasonably lovely for early December on Kane weekend, we knew we were missing several of our favorite show neighbors. BUT! We couldn't have been happier to have Melissa Parks of Megillicutti fill one of the empty spaces. From the fabulous merch to the fair prices, not to mention the amazingly creative displays, Megillicutti was a big hit. We found ourselves begging Melissa to come back on a regular basis. Plus she, and her helpers*, husband Jerry and son, Davis, were super nice to boot!
Another regular space was ably filled by Judy of the Iowa Junk Gypsies, so all in all, we didn't fare too badly at Kane -- good weather and good neighbors!

Last week, we restocked our space at Mishawaka Antiques. The store looks really lovely. I posted some photos on Facebook so you can take a look. Do stop in -- there are lots of wonderful pieces that would look great under your tree -- or in your living room!

And if you scroll to the bottom of this post, you will find the HALF-OFF general admission for this weekend's Grayslake. Be sure to join us for the last one of the season! As always, I will post some photos on Facebook by Friday so you can take a look at some of the goodies we will be bringing. Can't wait! See you there! xo

P.S. Melissa doesn't have a blog, but you can find her on Facebook -- check the LIKE box on our page.

*Melissa -- Know you had another friend helping, too, but I forgot to ask her name! Sorry. sg
