Portland Expo is the largest--and most serious-- show of the year for me.
With over 1,200 booths and literally tens-of-thousands of customers,
the pressure is on for presenting the best-of-the best!
Displaying my finest antique & vintage collections in an approachable,
friendly fashion is very challenging. I don't want
anyone feeling they can't come in and be comfortable
exploring for items from $5 . . . and beyond!!
There are many flavors of ice cream . . . none is actually
better than the other--it just depends on what you
like and are comfortable spending for the taste.
the rustic, the funkiest junk. I will not disappoint!
Being the most physically demanding and expensive show we do,
it's imperative to make it count. I've been
planning the mix of stunning merchandise for a year!
When you have a "traveling shop", it's difficult to
display experienced treasures in a new light each time.
My greatest desire is to please customers and delight their
senses . . . the world is so full of treasures created
by talented and loving hands. Shared passions for us all!!
This is but a tiny bite of a very satisfying meal awaiting
you in the next week. Please join me--I'd love
to connect with you in the joy
of the amazing, the common, the deeply rooted
arts of the ages!!
This is my inescapable, true path . . . please come
and share a bit of it with me.
For as long as I can remember, the beauty of
the past has been an awe-inspiring
treasure map for charting my future.
To be truly modern, hip or--whatever word melts your butter--
(apologies from a southern-girl), your soles must
be rooted in the past to walk on *new* air!
How you integrate that amazing past with your hopeful future is
where the most satisfying pleasure lies. Not many young people
want to be "old-fashioned", except maybe in values.
We have a rich *life-tapestry* to draw from . . . .
Please come explore the beauty and share the enchantment.
Words are inadequate . . . come see the magic for yourself!!!!
