TIME for Allegan; BookEnd

TIME FOR ALLEGAN: Sunday marked not only the start of our outdoor season, but also the season opener for the Allegan (MI) Antique Market. We had a terrific time. All the right ingredients were there: the weatherman cooperated, at least for the most part; customers turned out in droves for both early buy on Saturday and for the show Sunday; we got to reconnect with customers and friends we hadn't seen since the end of last season. What could make a show better? Sales were good in all categories. Plus we got to hang out with our Chicagoland BFF Lynda Boyd, her son, James and his new wife, Sara, and had dinner with Grand Rapids pals Dan and CJ Zondervan to boot. By the way, if you are in the area, the Mexican food at the Beltline Bar is not to be missed! Thanks to everyone who turned out to support the show. Next up, Kane County. More on that on Facebook later this week! Come join us. xo
BOOKEND: Remember me telling you about our favorite on-line marketing savant, Abby Kerr? Well, when you have a sec, be sure to check out her Best of the Web column (you may have to sign up to receive her email newsletter to access it, which is well worth it.) This week's three articles were all terrific, and be sure to check out these two older posts by Meg Worden and Justine Musk when you have a chance. Excellent reads, both of them. xo
