AWESOMELY ABBY: This year, we were excited to welcome our second summer intern, Ms. Abby Giurfa. Hardly a stranger to the show circuit, Abby is the daughter of one of our favorite Chicagoland dealers, Patty Suttle, aka Paper Patty. But we were blown away all week by the range and depth of Abby's skills -- not only was she great with our Allegan customers and fellow dealers, but she was no slouch around tools and a paint brush back at the studio. Plus she was a real trouper when the Allegan weather turned out to be a full 40 degrees colder than the temps just the week before! It barely topped 60, plus was windy and wet. And when hunting for new merchandise turned into a 10-hour work day, Abby hung in with a show-stopping smile. She actually said she'd like to come back next year. Could we get that lucky?! Thanks, Abby, for all your hard work. And the vegan eating tips. xo
UP NEXT: KANE COUNTY -- Come take a look at the the goodies we found while Abby was here! We will be in our usual spot in the main building this weekend. Click the link in our show sidebar for more details and visit us on Facebook later this week for a sneak peek at what we are bringing. Tell 'em Abby sent you!
