Imagine a place to work where offices have window sashes hung with aprons for curtains, walls of lavender and yellow, spring green and robin's egg blue. A real front porch for your supervisor to supervise and shelves upon shelves filled with vintage inspired wares to sell. Magical, simply magical.
I learned so much as a Personal Shopper whose job it was to describe and assist customers with their purchases. I might say things like, "If you are getting our latest Christmas cook book then you must get our vintage inspired cookie cutters. They are as cute as can be and are wonderful stored all year round in a glass jar on your kitchen counter."
"Welcome to Gooseberry Patch, my name is Elizabeth." is how I began each call from a customer. A smile in my voice, sincerity in my heart to share with others my love of all things Gooseberry Patch. Today I welcome you!
Elizabeth, you never cease to amaze me!! I love everything you make, but I do think these are my favorites ever!ReplyDelete
Oh, my gosh, E. I love that bluebird on the stand. He is one of your cutest, cheeriest pieces ever!!!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, my friend, for your notes of support. I have missed so much here and will try to take a peek today. Things are just rather upside-down and inside-out! I know you understand!
Such an adorable bluebird, Elizabeth, and I'm so excited to read your interview on Friday! One of my favorite places to visit...I wonder if you ever answered the phone when I placed orders some years ago...?ReplyDelete
I hope your day is filled with every wonderful thing, my friend!
Hi Elizabeth! I will love to see your interview on Gooseberry Patch this Friday. Another fantastic creation from you!ReplyDelete
I finished my red, white and blue crocheted throw...you were my inspiration.. as I mentioned before.. I would drool over your red, white and blue throw photo on your sidebar every time I visited your blog. Now I have my very own!
How exciting! I will BE there! Will it be on their blog? I have it in my list of favorites! Hugs! ♥ReplyDelete
WONDERFUL!!!!! I cannot wait until tomorrow! :):) I can only imagine how fun it was to work there...it is such a shame that they no longer sell the wonderful items they did, now it is basically just cookbooks! I got rid of all of my catalogs just before they quit printing them! When I got new catalog in the mail, it was like Christmas!!!!! I am so happy for you tht you get to be with old friends again! :)
Your photos as usual bring big smiles to my face!
