Petaluma Part Two: A to Z of Antiques

The moment I arrived at Summer Cottage Antiques a crazy idea popped into my head. I had about an hour to spare before the book signing and wanted to take some photos of the amazing things for sale. So, I started off cataloging my favorites, A to Z style...


And then as I approached a fabulous table of Keepsake pins...
The first guest arrived and I had to abandon my ABC photo project! Bur bfore I packed my camera away, I snapped a

SWEET DREAMSand, TEACUPS!I hope you've enjoyed the tour. If you see something in one of the photos that you can't live without, call 707-776-2873. Michelle and the gang will be happy to help.

Please note... WATERSIDE WEDNESDAY will take place on Thursday this week! Hint: The Mermaids are slow swimmers.

barbara, i'm a dunce! i don't get the waterside wednesday and the mr. linky business. i'd like to participate...but i don't really know what i'm supposed to do? god, what a dope i am, but at least i'm willing to admit it.

also, barbara, there are several shops in my area (atlantic beach, florida) that i really believe should be carrying your book. how do you handle the placement of them? i know, it's your publisher or distributor or some such, but seriously, there are many little independent shops here that would be the perfect venue for your book. have them check into it. when i told one of my fav shop owners about your book, she didn't want to listen, "i already have a distributor i order from..." etc. she has a smattering of titles such as yours scattered throughout her shop. contact me privately if you wish and i'll give you the names of the stores who would, i know, love your book, and draw the sort of customer who would buy it.
