To all who have supported me through another difficult year with the losses of more family, friends and another pet ~ from the artesanos who patiently teach and assist me while they keep creating, innovating and surprising us with their seemingly unlimited capacity to find and produce beauty, to those who keep showing up at the store, not only for special events but throughout each season, and to the collectors from all corners of the continent, who are patient enough to know the limitations of my time spent in day to day operations at the store vs. time to work on the site (and yet they find me in any case and ask to see what I have!): I send all of my admiration, thanks and love. May each of you be as fortunate as I in spending your holidays with ones that you love. May the coming year bring each of you peace, comfort and joy, as you do to me, in all of the ways that you most need to find them.
I will be open tomorrow until 5 pm for your last minute shopping needs. As always, I have lots of new things and great ideas for you in every price range. When you come please bring an item for the Squirrel Hill Food Pantry and be entered to win a $25 gift certificate. Vote on the holiday window competition sponsored by my friends at Uncover Squirrel Hill and be entered to win an incredible gift basket. ¡Felices Fiestas!
