congrats on winning best shop! Can;t wait to see what you have planned for your party- we just had one ( Our bohemian soiree) and it was oh so much fun. Wish I could come to yours so I could actually enjoy a party instead of being in charge of it!- Your shop looks lovely.

Hi, Domestic Bliss--

Thanks for the congrats! For the benefit of our local customers, I want to clarify that we were very glad to be voted as FINALISTS in two categories. The wins in both those categories went to large retail establishments in our area--one the local mall, the other a collective of artisan shops with an outdoor flea market. We have our customers to thank for making us one of only a few indie shops to make it in as a Finalist.

Will definitely check out your Bohemian Soiree. The name alone smacks of a good time!
