Making It Into the Shops

With everything being so busy for the last month, Stephan working, raising children, traveling back and forth from NM to AZ, making cards, blah blah blah, Stephan and I have decided that Thursday is going to be "our" day.  Typically we run into Durango and spend the day shopping and looking for goodies for the courtyard and have a nice time getting me out of the "compound".  However, this last Thursday we did something a little different.

With the premise of finding a cute mailbox for the cottage and some nifty things to spruce up outside the cottage, we hit up a few thrift stores and antique stores in the area.  They have this adorable antique shop less than a mile from the house that my mom and I have been talking about going in to next time she is up (hint, hint) so we went there first.

After looking through all of the cool stuff I decided to put my man pants on and ask her if she would be interested in having some nifty hand made cards in her shop to sell.  Quite frankly, this has got to be the scariest thing in the world for me to do!!!   I can speak to a room with a thousand people in it about organizing their office space, but blindly asking someone if I can put up a display with my cards in it is TERRIFYING!!!

As I am standing there holding my breath, trying to remember to breathe so I don't pass out, she said "yes"!  However, she only has room for a floor standing rack next to the register.  =)

After talking to Stephan and then hitting up my amazing SIL, I have decided that I am going to go ahead and get my cards into her shop and see what happens from there!!  I am ordering the rack next week and then starting in on the cards and I am hoping to have everything all set and settled by middle of August!

I have never done anything like this before so if anyone has any tips, hints or suggestions I would be MOST APPRECIATIVE!!!

Happy Stamping!!!


  1. Where are you ordering your card rack from. I would love to have one.

    1. Hi Mary!
