...i went shopping

As a retailer, I don't often get to be the customer.
Well, I do get to go grocery shopping, and of course there's the clothes shopping for the kiddos...but to shop for handmade things, like the ones I collect and have strewn about my home...well, I sell all the things I love so I am forever shopping from myself.

BUT, I just had the wonderful treat of shopping at "Baubles & Bling".

Sallianne McClelland of Art-Is-You invited some wonderful artist friends to create a shopping showcase in her Westchester cannot miss it next year if you are in the NY area... and I have already promised Sal I would again send some Earth Angels goodies.

On top of all the fab offerings, how cool that a part of the proceeds from the sale benefits Sal's two fave local charities... The Westchester Bereavement Center and SEPTA.

Here she is with Loretta and Marlene...
...well done gals!

And I loved being fussed over as a customer. Look at these displays; I loved it all!

I loved every minute of being with ya'll not to mention the loot I nabbed....this is just SOME of it...can you spot the Pamela Huntington treasures and some treats from Kecia Deveny...I cannnot show them all because my gal pals who read this blog will have things under the tree from this wonderful shopping jaunt!

I really love this idea of "handmade-homemade" shopping -- so if any of you know of more of these boutiques speak up! Looking ahead to next year already, I would like to include them in a calendar/blog post (oh, and I would like to go shop at them too!!!)

Hope you are all avoiding the frenzy out there as the holidays approach...

xxoo Jen
