I bought myself an early birthday present yesterday! Well, two of them, actually:
Dressy boots! I'd been casually looking for a while without much luck. And then yesterday I had some time to kill before I met with my accountant, so I wandered into a store called Charming Charlie.
Overall, not my favorite place (they sort their merchandise by color to "help you coordinate" when I think sorting by style would be better), but they DID have a lot of boots at a reasonable price. These were $40, and they're so comfy I think I'll wear them at my show this weekend.
How's THAT for a transition?
If you're going to be anywhere near Chicago, you'll want to check this out. A mix of fine art and handmade goodies from 100 vendors, Saturday and Sunday, noon to 5pm both days. I've done this show in the past and it's excellent. You can score a free admission pass right here.
So what are you up to this weekend? Buying shoes? Going to a craft fair? Something totally different?
