I’m having such a great time on my trunk show through the South, I’ll have lots of stories and photos to share when I get a break. Today I’m Birmingham one of my favorite shops: Table Matters. Patricia consistently puts together fabulous tables with well thought out combinations of hard to find china, glass and linens. I confess my weakness for her napkin ring choices. I always get another set whenever I am in town. www.tablematters.com — I’ll be there from 1pm until 4pm!
I’m excited to be starting my trunk show tour in Tupelo, Mississippi at the fabulous Elizabeth Clair’s. Tupelo is the birthplace of Elvis Presley and home to the museum of the same name. I have been coming here for 10 or 12 years and have added to my Elvis memorabilia….and found some killer gifts for my friends & gift closet.
I like the museum because it is small. It has the tiny 2 room cottage he was born in.
It has gotten more sophisticated since I first came here, less home made displays but still pretty eye opening.
On my first trip I bought too much and had to haul my Elvis in his gold suit pillow everywhere, including the flight home. It would not fit in my bags. It was a real conversion starter!
Over the next few weeks I’ll be doing a lot of traveling — visiting some of the amazing stores that carry Annieglass, for events to celebrate our 30th Anniversary and to share some of our newest products alongside some old favorites. Here’s a list of where I’ll be, I hope you will come by and see me when I’m in your town!
April 20th: I’ll be in Annandale, VA at Annsandra from 11am to 3pm
April 22nd: From 1pm – 4pm, I’ll be visiting Elizabeth Clair’s in Tupelo, Mississippi.
April 23rd: Table Manners, in Birmingham, Alabama, from 1pm to 4pm.

April 25th: The Ivy Cottage in Mobile, Alabama from noon to 3pm
April 25th: Martin Miazza in Gulfport, MS from 4pm to 7pm.
April 25th: We’ll also be having a 30th Anniversary celebration at Pretty Papers in Hilton Head, South Carolina, the exact times are still being worked out, I’ll let you know when it’s all finalized!
On April 17th I will be at Bankhead Flowers & Fine Gifts in New Albany. April 18th I’ll be at Mak B & Co. in Starkville. April 19th I travel to Canton to visit Noble-Watts Jewelers and on the 20th I finish up at The Everyday Gourmet in Jackson. These events are all part of my Cupcake Crazy events tour so be sure to bring you most favorite and festive cupcakes to be judged for the chance to win a special discount. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
Bob Millslagle of the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk purchased a gift from my store for some friends in London and took it to be shipped to them —we do not do international shipping.
There was something wrong with the address and the package came back from London and it was returned to Bob in California. Determined to get his gift to his friends, Bob then reshipped the tray back to London. But once again it was returned to him in California. How many miles is that? And in the same box with absolutely no damage!
Finally Bob just waited and gave it to the lucky and (hard to locate) recipient, who then hand carried the well traveled piece back to London. More than 30,000 miles the tray is safe and sound and finally home in London.
