Why write a hand-written note?
1. It's the right thing to do! Yes, I know it sometimes seems that manners are teetering on the edge of extinction and an emoji can do the duty of a sincerely expressed sentiment. But lets face it, we all LOVE to receive a beautiful hand written note more than a heart-eyed emoji.. Am I right?!
2. It sets you apart. Probably one of the easiest things you can do as a
friend or professional is to write thank you notes. It makes you stand out
& makes you appear more polished.
3. Handwritten letters perpetuate a very important part of our culture. There is something about writing (not typing) that allows you to dig deep inside your soul for the right words and express yourself, without spell check or auto-correct questioning every word you type..
4. IT'S FUN! Seriously, yes it takes a little more effort, but who wouldn't want a lovely hand written note? And when you find cute & spunky mini cards like Karen Adams, Pardon My French (Pictured) you just can't help yourself!

Day One - It Was A Jam Packed Day!
We hit the ground running...first stop Saro for fall and holiday table linens. Then off to Sugarboo for lots of inspirational cards and paper products (and a great new baby clothing line), followed by Bougainvillea for fall and holiday floral arrangements.
That was all before lunch!
Then it was Spartina, Elegant Baby, Vietri, and Mariposa all in the afternoon! Spartina 449 had some great new introductions that will start arriving in mid August! Keep an eye out for a new product from Mariposa, the single initial grab and go gift tray. This is a great gift idea at a great price ($89). And as always great new things from Vietri (including a new line from this year's visiting artist).
Day Two - Up Early For A Day Of Shopping.
We met Mary, got her registered and ready to shop!
The day started with Yala Designs, Zodax, Peepers and Canoe. We found lots of great new fall looks from Yala Designs, (keep an eye out for pajamas and robes in your favorite bamboo fabric). During the afternoon, we did the high design temporaries and found some great new lines.
John Wind jewelry, vintage jewelry with a modern twist. We've also added a great new children line called Maileg (this was Barb’s favorite find of the entire trip).
We also got to test a new holiday candle from Nest called Sugar Cookie - it was sweet and delicious.
The day ended with new tech products from Kate Spade, cards and gifts from Karen Adams and Rifle Paper.
It was finally time for dinner and a glass or two of wine!
