We finally got to unload, set up our walls and tables, and then at closing time (luckily we had an early break at 5), we were off to the Downtown San Luis Obispo Farmers Market. A large farmers market, we walked, shopped, bought flowers, and had a great dinner. Then a trip to BubbleGum Alley!

Selling is also one of my favorite parts of this show and probably one of the things I miss most about not having the shop anymore. As we began to make our final preparations, fine tuning the flowers, etc, I was so honored to have on of my favorite designers walk in and want to take pictures of my booth for her blog. I had seen Brooke Giannetti the prior show, but I didnt recognize her with her new haircut. "Of course you can take pictures...whats your blog?, "I asked her. "Velvet and Linen". Duh, I only have had this on my blogroll for years....Then I began to fumble and sputter..I was so honored to have her want to take pictures of my space to share with her readers. Here is the link to her blog, Velvet and Linen and the article. That was how my Saturday at Remnants began!!!! I was so glad to get this picture of us. I even called my mom who at Mothers Day had given me her latest book, Patine Style. Its a must have for your library!
