Ready, Set, Go

Ok folks; I have schlepped, hauled, climbed... glued, wired, nailed... unpacked, fluffed, tagged and now its time to let the show begin.

This Friday at 8:30 am, Good JuJu will open its doors to ring in the holiday season and I am excited to be a part of it. I have dusted off my display skills and tried to create a mini shop for you to browse, buy and be inspired. Confession: I have loved every minute of it! The owner, dealers, and staff of JuJu have welcomed me with open arms and have encouraged, taught and helped me prepare for this event. I see now that although they may only be open 3 days a month, they work non-stop to prepare for this show. Each dealer has their own unique look with merchandise to match; from primitives to 50's kitch, to vintage clothing, to painted furniture... to say there is something for everyone is an understatement.

I have visited JuJu a dozen times in the past but mostly on Sundays and now I know this is the stupidest thing I could have done! A line forms at 8 am on Friday to fans that know what they could be missing and by noon the dock is packed with items to take home to customers. I'll never be late again! The good stuff goes fast.

Below is a sneak peek into my space with many of the Christmas items not shown. (Still tagging!) The ornaments, linens, candles and soap are not shown either. PLEASE STOP IN TO SAY HELLO and visit us and all the other shops during First Fridays, Warehouse Weekends.
