I actually found some of the prints to be quite striking & lots of pink

Bolts & Bolts of Hawaiian fabric

I'm back, well sort of.....I still have 80 degree weather on my mind. I miss that the most--- it's brrr cold here in Ohio. I'm so glad to see family & friends AND customers! I'm really glad to be back, Maui is only 48 miles long & 26 miles wide as Darcy says "wow a big gust of wind and you would blow right off the island". I would eventually feel trapped if I live there. I did find one funky junk/antique store among all the souvenir shops.

When I returned to the store I was shocked: Darcy outdid herself (again)! The store has no remnants of Christmas. New merchandise is arriving & the window displays are cheering up the town. We even have a tiny sale room, Darcy opened a closet that is under a stairway, has exposed brick--- (75% off mind you)!
Alas! I can't find the new pics of the store, they're somewhere in a file AND I will try to post these tonight. grrrr

Other news folks, Darcy & I will be heading to NYC this weekend. We hope to scour and bring back lots of goodies. Inspiration abounds here and we are blessed to be able to go. (www.aa.com & click on last minute vacation packages--hotel & airfare is combined, this was an incredible deal) I wanted to post this for our shop owner friends as shows can be pricey, this is through American Airlines.
Love,
Kara

You lucky ducks. I wish I could book a quick trip and go with you to NY. You are sure to find some a-MA-zing new lines there for the shop. Have a blast!!!

It's amazing how, after coming to M & S, whenever I find something cute I say "oh wow...that is sooo McMaster&Stormy." =) I'm low on ribbon...oh well, guess I'll have to stop in. Will we be able to order products online from your new website?
