Our Summer Trunk Show featuring Sid Dickens Memory Blocks and Pyrrha Jewelry was a smashingly fun success this past Saturday. Devoted collectors, regular customers, and new discoverers were all on the scene to choose their favorites in person. We also took special orders for some of our most popular tile styles (they go quickly--kind of like potato chips) and for those wanting to handselect gifts from our extensive Pyrrha catalog in plenty of time for pre-holiday delivery.
Here are a couple of sneak peek photos. I'll be uploading a nice big batch this evening or tomorrow; you know, all those juicy close up shots...
Our Online Trunk Show featuring the Sid Blocks and Pyrrha jewelry will begin later today. I'll be working diligently throughout the day today to get every item ready to show in the Jewelry department of our Online Boutique. Watch for another blog post later today announcing that all the jewelry has been uploaded and is ready to purchase...with free shipping! (Or, keep watching the Jewelry department throughout the day, as pieces will be added hourly. We're already in progress!) In addition, we'll be posting photos of Sid's tiles here on the blog later today. You'll be welcome to e-mail or call with inquiries about pricing and ship time.
I meant to come in and work yesterday (Sunday, the day the shop is closed) so that we could begin our Online Trunk Show early this morning. Instead, I spent most of yesterday at the hospital with my family. My twenty-six year old cousin Michael Kerr lost his life in a motorcycle accident early Sunday morning on his way home from work. Michael, a big teddy bear of a guy at 6'8" tall, will be remembered for his warm smile, his great hugs, and his way of making everybody feel comfortable, even if it was the first time he'd ever met you. We'll be taking some time off later this week for the funeral. Please keep our family, especially my uncle Joe and aunt Jan (Jackson Township residents) and my cousins Molly and Kristin (his sisters, who adored him), in your prayers. And please, please, please, if you're a motorcycle rider, slow down and wear a helmet. Life is so precious and can be taken away in one moment. We'll never forget the warmth that Michael brought to the world and to everyone who knew him, and we believe that his life goes on in Eternity.
