OK, I just have to tell you the news, dears. I can't wait.
Now, let me just say that this is by no means official and there is a chance that this might not work out, but I am not waiting for this to be official. I'm just too freaking excited to not tell you.
So, picture it, Minneapolis on a snowy Saturday afternoon....
I am riding along after a quick stop at the post office and pass a vintage shop I've never seen before.
I look over and think: "Don't even think about it." (I am trying to be good right now.)
But then, my car turns itself around and I head to the shop.
This shop is freaking adorable. The shop owner and I chat like chipmunks. It's like we've been friends for 20 years.
Quickly, the conversation turns to collaboration opportunities. Exciting stuff!
I then said farewell and got in my car.
I did a happy dance and called my pop-up partner Ash right then.
I drove straight to her house and we both did happy dances in her living room.
A pop-up one weekend a month!
And it's in my 'hood!
We haven't worked out the details. This is an idea right now, but that is enough for me.
Thank you all for your love and support this last week. You all reminded me that this is what I love and that I needed to find a way to make it happen. And...it just might be happening! Can you believe it?! Ash and I might be getting ahead of ourselves, but we already picked out our "shop" name. It's awesome. Life is good, mamas. Life is good.
P.S. A special thank you to Erin and Jeannine - your kind letter and sweet package was like a giant bear hug that I really needed. You totally made me cry (happy tears!). Somehow, even from Jersey, you can make me feel better. I really couldn't ask for better friends.
P.P.S. Head over to Rose Runs Wild today to win this hand-made garland and a shop credit (from yours truly)! It's a sweet give-away friends! I am sad I can't enter!
