A shop full of newbies.

After 15 years in business I sometimes take my shop for granted, and it takes a first timer to re-ignite my passion. Today was one of those newbie days.
All the way from Lee Massachussetts came friends, Cynthia and Kathleen who found us online and had to come experience the shop for themselves! From bracelets to mixing bowls, they were in their element. Smiling from ear to ear as they hauled out their bags of booty, promising to come back soon. On their heels were Cookie and Tony from Saratoga who literally lit up the shop with their electrifying energy and love for anything vintage. "Hey Tony, come over here and see all of these cookbooks" said an excited Cookie. "Oh my Goodness Cookie, we could be here all day..." I fell in love with them, and my shop all over again. Along came Vicki the owner of Sonrise Diaper Service ,whom I met at the Buy Local Bash, ( a local business soiree) for her first official visit to aunt katie's. Beaming with every new discovery, she found some incredible bargains, and loaded up the van! Well that just about sent me over the moon. You see it's not just about making the sale, for me it's more about making the friend.
