Show & Tell June 23

First of all, thank you all sweet Pinkies that left so many sweet comments on my first Show & Tell last week, I should have thanked you all one by one but this last week just went by in a flash!! This was my first Pink Friday and then I have set up shop at Granny’s Attic in Temecula, so my week has been packed to say the least. The pictures are from my booth, I just got started and need to bring in so much more stuff and do all the fluffing but it’s a good start, I think!

I thought I would tell you how I got all my “stuff”, I worked for a Gourmet Coffee & Tea company from 1996 until last march last year, at the most did we have 9 locations around the Los Angeles area. I started as an extra Christmas help doing gift baskets and more or less run the company behind the scenes last couple of years. The stores all sold as the owner got some health problems and wanted to retire and I took over the remaining “stuff”.

Hi Helene!

I feel like a kid in a candy shop! What fabulous displays! I have several trolls. Two of them are from I was only 5 yrs old. So they are very special to me. Love everything Helene! You did a wonderful Show and Tell! Can't wait to see you next week!
