I had the honor of participating in Lily Wikoff's second Vintage Pop-Up shop, held in the beautifully textured Artisan Traders building in the Village of West Greenville. To describe my part of it in the most basic terms, I sold some vintage stuff and got to be a part of the growing Village community. At the heart of it, I got a lesson in facing irrational fears and putting myself out there. #vulnerability
The entire weekend (a long weekend for me - I took a personal day from work on Friday) was a dream. There are so many things I could say about it, but the only one that seems to matter is this: I could do this every day. The people, the clothes, the coffee, the general camaraderie - these are things I do not take for granted. I miss working with people - just so much; I certainly felt the magic of synergy once more while hanging with all the lovely souls who took part in the Pop-Up. Thankful for that.
Here are all the special folks who had a part in it:
Let's all do it again soon. Until then, I need to get my items back up in my shop!
