Enough about my worries, I want to share a little about Christmas in Historic Silverton. I had some concerns about turnout since I did an email but not a postcard mailing as I do for most of the sales I have here at the house, but I have to say we had a terrific turnout!
And 20 years later we are still enjoying Christmas in Historic Silverton together.
When the last customer left my shop Friday evening, Gayle and I made a beeline downtown to see what was going on. As clever planners would have it, this event always coinsides with First Friday (the first Friday of the month) most of the downtown merchants stay open until 9pm.
We found Jori, she looks glad to see us! She was set up with her wonderful repurposed fabric art on the second floor of the Wolf Building. She and Cecila (the owner of the yarn The Purl District and fabric store Snippets, down stairs) both had items that were remade with felted wool.
I'm pretty sure she was waving, I don't think she was shooing us away??
That must be a look of delight on her face
Now Jori thinks we might want to go thisaway??
Behind Jori is Jen, who is also setup to do business upstairs for the weekend. Her business is Sew Divine.
She has a darling line of baby items, that sweet little baby on her business card is hers!
This was the view from where they were.
Yes, more shoppers!!
They look excited too!!
Here is that excited shopper, we saw coming in the door.
When they asked her if she wanted to go with them to see Auntie Joy, and she most certainly did!
Did she have a clue who I was? Nope but, being a princess after my own heart, she knew there was a good time to be had and didn't want to miss out on the fun! And she was right, she was having a great time making friends and finding treasures!
