And, the Hits Just Keep On Comin!

I know, I know....I've been a naughty blogger this month, but only because it's been so crazy here!  Every week seems to bring exciting surprises for us!  Last week we were offered a new location in the Arbors.  Not far, in fact it's right next door to our old location but on the CORNER!  We'll take it!!  And, we have BIG news to share about the shoppe, more to come on this later!

Another surprise, the kitchen makeover at 5th Place was featured on Apartment Therapy (YOWZERS!) over a month ago.....I didn't even know until last week! See, I told you it's been busy!!

And, even bigger surprises this week.....we've been accepted into Mistletoe Marketplace in Jackson, MI!  It's a coveted, very seriously juried show, so we are truly honored!  We will have the largest space in the market, (6 booths) as well as,

a corner booth,

on an endcap,

on the center aisle! 

Can it get any better?  I think not!  We knew we had been accepted in March, but only found out about the booth size and placement today!  I made phone calls to the crew with the good news this morning and excitement is everywhere!

I've always said and truly believe it, "we fall into everything and the path always seems to be guided".  I never cease to be amazed by the surprises that fall right into our lap!

The downside.....figuring out how on earth we are going to run 3 huge Holiday shows, back to back, and all amidst preparations for another HUGE project we have in the works (more to come on this...)!

Fall is going to be beyond crazy busy for us, but that's okay...

Crazy busy is how we roll!

Congratulations! You deserve it. I spent the entire afternoon looking at your past blog posts. They are all amazing. You are such an inspiration to me, not only with your blog, but your decorating style, talent, and vintage goodies. Gonna grab that button.

I can't believe you are coming to Mistletoe Marketplace!! I lived 30 minutes from Jackson for 14 years and hardly ever missed MM! A group of friends would make a night of it with the market first and ending with dinner.
I am going to try my
best to come this year!

I have no doubt your "crew" and you will pull it all together and each event will look like a well oiled machine! And I know for sure that you all will have a blast doing it!!
YAY for all the good things happening in your life. Hard work pays off, eh?!!!
