Well, we have lot write about but nothing to say. No, REALLY, there are two wonderful stores and three great gals we'd like to mention. First off, the gal from Savannah, GA (Liz) @ home Vintage General; and secondly Vernonne and Amy in Turlock, CA at Lily's Emporium.
Both shops warrant a stop if you get to their area. Kara, has made it to both! Darcy, on the other hand, only gets to western Kansas, on occasion, where there is nothing but brown grass and cattle, OH BOY! What fun. Kara has built a personal relationship with Vernonne & Amy by working down the street from them several years ago and then working with them, buying and displaying, (and from what I'm told royally trashing their back room!). Great gals and great stores.
Liz, like I said K.B.G made a visit to your store when she and Matt made a trip to the "Y'all state" of GA back in '03. You know how those gals from the south are, never met a stranger. Liz, is an absolute darling, sweet. And her store, well enough said, it's just that great.
So get in your buggy and go. You won't be sorry at all for your travels, just make sure you have plenty of dough, re, mi along, 'cause you won't walk out of either store empty handed just short of change. I DO advise make your honey a gofer and go fer those goooey gophers that our dear friends Simon and Sally retreived on a daily basis while on a recent visit to Savannah. (Thanks for making our mouths water, you two. Sally's friendly visit did reconnect us to our long lost friend Liz, though. It had been awhile since we talked, soooooo thanks for the push Sally.
Kara's note: Thanks to Darcy our blog needed some humor, she's the funny one & our customers love her!
BTW Lily's Emporium (Vernonne & Amy) You're it! You are now tagged, welcome to the world of blogging. You're finally going to the Atlanta market ----we'll see you there.
To Liz the gal behind @home, vintage general----hope to see you there as well.
