Today was the grand opening of Panache, and marked the first time I’ve had my things in an actual store. I’m kind of excited, and it’s weird to walk into a store and see my things. It’s a wee little independant store, but it’s a good start and I’m happy.
My pillows on a little sofa near the back. I still like the term “caterpillow”, hee hee.
A rack in the middle of the store. Those are my aprons hanging on the right.
Some of my many, many purses. The shop owner actually bought two from me.
So I spent an hour or so poking around in the store, talking to the shop owner, and squeeing a bit. My neighbor came with me and after we finished that, we decided to go wander around the area. It’s a neat neighborhood, with lots of buildings that look like they haven’t been touched for decades. One store had goldenrod flocked wallpaper
that I was contemplating stealing right off the wall. (I have a completely insane and random fondness for extremely ugly 70′s things, which is even stranger given that I’m only 24.) Unfortunately most of the shops were empty, but it could be a neat area given the chance. We did find an antique shop, where I happened upon THESE…
Are they not the freakiest little things ever? I sort of love them, and was sorely tempted to buy them just to hide around the house and scare the crap out of people. I did buy a pair of tiny green ceramic owls, which I need to take a picture of.
