If we can't have Spring, some sunshine will do....

...or something new that suggests that spring will show up.
Because
we all are
needing it.


Something green.
Something
alive.


...or
pretty.


Something that says
"warm".



Comforting.



Color.
Any
color!





Something...
to make us
smile!

XXOO,

Cheri

Spread the Love............




good goods & co's




Annual Benefit for The


Women and Children's Alliance!!




Saturday, February 13


11 am ~5 pm




What an outrageous day we have planned!!!


Please stop in, let us spoil you and support a great charity!
A percent of all sales will be donated to the Women & Children’s Alliance!!




~Artist’s Market~
Five local artists selling their wares



~Gift Baskets~
for lucky winners




~Refreshments~
think chocolate, pink mimosas




~Chair Massage~
donations will directly benefit the Alliance!!




When Robin heard about our connection with the WCA, her response was "I'm all over that. I'll bring in my massage chair!" (Free! Tips will go directly to the Alliance!!!) She'll also be showing her embellished lingerie~more info can be found here about this well know, local masseuse/artist, wonderful woman.






Government employee by day, outrageously talented jewelry artist on her off hours. Janet puts together beautiful combinations of semi precious stones, beads and who knows what else to create conversation pieces that you won't find anywhere else! Her excitement for this event is contagious and we are so glad she's going to be here!!!!












Sharon takes bits and pieces of vintage this and that and somehow comes up with these astounding brooches! We had her jewelry in the shop right before Christmas and were amazed at how fast they sold. Now you have another chance at these ~ exclusively at good goods! Wohoo!!







New inventory is coming in to tempt you...




...we're working on getting it onto the floor...







But we still have a way to go!!


We promise we will be prepared to treat you right. Please, please round up a few friends (the more the....you know) and join us for a unique day to benefit an amazing cause!!



Thanks for being the best,

Cheri

My Ideal............

This I love. The juxtaposition of OLD and very "new". I could so live like this. Not quite the "accepted"......This is me. Perhaps with a few plants....Is this you? Comments, please!

The Reality of "Market"



First off...book yourself into a gorgeous, 1920's four (or five??) star hotel. Trust me--they had a great room rate!!!
This guy was hanging out across the street.....



Had this bed fit into my suitcase, it would have come home w/ me. Loved that the glass in the double hung windows was old and wavy!



Now, the truth of it is.....you have to look at a lot of this:




and this:



..before you begin to see the light..




That's what I'm talking about.







Loved this guy's stuff--EXPENSIVE!!!

Fun show room--



Ordered lots in this showroom...ahh, Christmas!



..and ordered here.....




Sort through 60 pounds of catalogs and samples to decide which one's are worth an overweight suitcase on the trip home!!


Have your picture taken with an adorable manufacturer to make yourself feel REALLY worn out....yes, I did order her darling bags and accessories (see 'em in the background??!)
So there you are. Work, fun, tiring, frustrating--Market-it's a hoot!!
Best,
Cheri
