The weekend was a whirlwind of busy-ness. It started with a Friday walk on the Hillsborough River Walk. We just missed the rain, getting our steps in before the drops started falling! Jason and I admired again the amazing man-made stickwork structure by artist Patrick Doughtery.
I was in my sweet little shop Sidetracked on Saturday. I love meeting my customers. I had a new customer from Raleigh who found me on line. She and her husband stopped in and we had a nice visit. Of course, the kitties (all four of them) keep life interesting and sweet.
Jason and I did a lot of garden work over the weekend, which was evidenced by my Fitbit blowing up with steps. I managed a quick stop by The Scrap Exchange where I saw some beautiful quilt tops. I passed them by without purchasing, but I did take a few pictures.
One of the things I love about having my particular retail shop is meeting local performers (and some from as far away as New York!) who come in looking for clothes. Vintage is so popular. Some customer simply wander in because of my VINTAGE sign. I also have quite a few regulars who enjoy visiting and looking for treasures.
I love looking for things that are stage worthy, theatre ready, and unusual! I truly have fun with clothes from the shop! People always ask, “Where did you get that?!” I love sharing that I shop for such things and pull them into Sidetracked for my customers. They are welcomed to visit Sidetracked! I love visiting with the customers!
The lace pattern tights were originally a Christmas gift from my dear Jason! He knows I love clothes. Once I fell in love with them (and had 100 different people ask where I got them), I ordered some for the shop. I have put a link below where you can order them, or at least see them. They may look delicate, but they are sturdy (handled with care, of course). I have gotten two years from my first pair so far! (Note the link below is my Amazon affiliate link.)
As promised, here are two more hats. I am sharing photos with you as they go into the Etsy shop. (I have to admit, again, photo editing apps are GREAT for softening middle-age wrinkles for promotional photos.) 😉
I have always wondered what it would be like to get together with a bunch of friends and just jam. Well, I found out over the weekend. It was the first of hopefully-many-more-to-come jam sessions. Eight of us got together to play, sing, and just learn more about music.
In my apartment, there is this narrow end of a partition wall where some cool old photos and what-nots hang. I was admiring them today, and I thought you might want to see.
