By now, I know your summer is in full swing. Like it or not, June is almost over and I’m already thinking about sweater weather and pumpkin lattes. Maybe it’s because April, of the Added Touch, and I just returned from market and the temperature inside the World Trade Center there and the Trade Mart Center was about 40 degrees. So even though we were buying for next spring, it felt like parka weather. That was especially true as we finished the buying for the last part of this year.
Want to see some of the products we’ve got coming in?
I know a lot of you think that going to market is kind of glamorous and exciting. In some ways, it is. In other ways, it’s just plain hard work. We arrive at market at 7:30 in the morning, and many times do not leave until 7:30 or 8 o’clock that night. We are non stop walking and looking all that time. The only time we sit is when we eat a 15 minute lunch, go to the restroom, or change shoes.

 

So we have to make time to relieve some of the stress we feel during the day. Here I am trying on a pair of reader glasses. And guess what? April has got the cutest necklaces coming that you can hang them on around your neck.  Not only that they inspirational sayings on them that I know you will love.
Also, for my spring shipment I wanted some ideas from you as to whether this would be something that you might want. Here’s the deal: this adorable swing is something my heart swooned over. Maybe, it’s the nostalgia of it. Is it something that you all would feel that you would love in your favorite tree. Or, maybe you could use it in your home? Give me some ideas, guys. What inventive ideas might you have?

And this clock is coming in soon. I love it. Enough said!
And, I know this is hard to figure out what it is. But it should be here for the next event. It is a framed, antiqued flag. It definitely pulled at my heartstrings. I think of all the service men that were willing to sacrifice their lives for us. And of course, thank you to the people that loved them and supported them while they were away at war. I admire and love you all.
Black and red and black and cream just really spoke to me this season. These throws will be great all year round, especially the black and cream one. They’d even look great as a wrap with all the black you wear–just to give the black a little “wow” factor.
We’re getting ready for the warehouse sale July 25 – 27. Also, remember the shop is open also with lots of fantastic specials.
Blessings on the rest of your week. Can’t wait to see you all. Or should I say y’all–I’ve been in Texas for a week?
