The crowds came in and they seemed pleased with what they saw.
Here is part of my space, before the crowds hit.
Many of the things you see found new homes Saturday.
You might recall that I planned to take an entire truckload with me Saturday, with the hopes of doing a reset before I left that evening. Well, every time a hole appeared in my space, David would make a run to the truck for more goods. By the end of the day, my truck was empty and I had a big smile on my face!
Another big thanks to Gloria, her staff and family for making the day run like a well oiled machine. To the other dealers, I'm thrilled to be a part of this with you. Y'all rock! I wish I could just hug every single person who came out Saturday for the grand opening. Thanks to you for making the trip to Athens!

A shout out to my boyfriend David, who was a big support through this entire process, from "I'm thinking about becoming a part of Winnie & Tulula's", to power shopping, to preparation, to setting up, to bringing his camera and making our memories visible in photographs. Wanna see what he took Grand Opening Day? Click here for the slide show and click here to go straight to his set. Enjoy!
If you didn't make it, come out any Wednesday through Saturday, 10a - 6p. 119 E Tyler St, Athens, Texas. What am I doing sitting in front of the computer? I need to go shopping!
ps. For whatever reason, my home computer is not allowing me to leave comments anywhere. Ugh. I'll try to get caught up on comments when I'm at another computer. It's always something!
