You Did It Again

You graced us with record setting attendance and record setting sales!  Thank you so much for supporting us as you do.  Thanks also for taking time to grab one of us and tell us that you read the blog and the Facebook page, you overwhelm me.....you really do.

We appreciate all of our blog / Facebook readers and I'm blown away by the number of you that subscribe to one or both of our pages.  But, it's a very special thing when you get to meet readers in person at the Shoppe.  It's a real treat and there were so many this show that we couldn't keep count, thank you for that, it means so much! 

We were blessed to recieve lots of visits from customers cradling puppies and babies during the show.  Everytime I turned around there was something cuddly or furry to hold.....we were all in heaven! 

After my last post about our recent rescue, Bosco, I was also deeply moved to find out how many of our customers support animal rescue.  Words can't express how much that means to me.....it's deep for me.   My heart felt thanks to all of you that open your heart and home to animals in need.  We need lots more loving people just like you!

Such as Tina and Dan who brought in two of their many rescues,
Doogie and Fen, for a visit with us at the Shoppe.  We love them!

It warms my heart to see babies in the Shoppe, furry or otherwise!

And, one last BIG thank you to all of you that so generously supported the Shoppe, and us, through sweet words on your blogs over the past month.  Your words of encouragement mean so much, not just to me, but to the entire crew.

OMG those pups are so cute! I love everything I bought and your store was beautiful as always.

We did see some really cute babies, and some adorable fur babies... I was amazed too Laurie when I would talk about my rescue dogs, how many people also had stories of dogs or cats that they had rescued as well, I think that's wonderful.
hugs~~~ Daphne

Hi Laurie!

I so wanted to stop in this month but it was crazy busy down on the grounds and I did good to leave our booth for bathroom breaks and food!! The pics of your store are so beautiful, as always.

Oh and btw, I combined my two blogs into one. Since you followed my jewelry blog before, I thought you might like the new address.....www.faithandpearl.blogspot.com

Have a wonderful week and hope to see you next month!!
