MARTHA MY DEAR....

   Yesterday, I went into Santa Monica to do my weekly run to spend a day in my mall space to tidy up and add new stock...A big piece had sold so I had my work cut out for me, so I decided just to do an overhaul and change the look... One of the sales people in the store came to see me and asked me if I had any hooks...I always stock them because I love them and they sell well...So I gave him a basket of them to show a customer.  I was dusting the cobwebs out of the corners on my hands and knees when I looked up as he was coming back with them and low and behold I see that the customer was Martha Stewart...Well... whether  you like her or not, when you see her standing there in yourlittleshopIt is quite
a shock to the system...after all she is the one who almost single handedly started this whole collecting thing and walls of pottery and mossy green and the whole thing... When she showed McCoy Pottery in her magazine I couldn't keep it  in stock...she was that influential...And now she was standing in my stall...
  I didn't say anything just bowed and curtsied...    She seemed gracious and not stand offish..
  You know, I use to think she was a snobby control freak..Now, I see her differently...Maybe her little
"time inside" has given her some street cred...I admire her now..She went through hell and came out on the otherside..looking rather hot I might add...Didn't see any tats though.......

PS...To answer some questions:  she bought those hooks from me..She was in my space for about 6 seconds....From other spaces she got blue and white plates...thats all I was able to see without being too dang obvious.  She looked great. No lines. No wrinkles. Tight black jeans. Little black flats. Black long sweater. No I can't take photos of "the celebs".  We get lots of them in the store and its a big no, no, for us to take pics of them.  Hooks were metal ones like in a grade school locker rooms.. I buy lots of them when on buying trips to Wisconsin.

LOL now wouldn't that shock the heck out of you! It's not every day we see Martha Stewart in our shop...I can understand not being able to say anything. Did she buy anything?!!! How long was she at your booth? Inquiring minds want to know!! I hope you're having a wonderful morning.....hugs Maura

Howdy! Just catching up after all the flea work and had to come over to see/read what is new with you.
Awesome about Ms Stewart! I know I was thrilled when her buyer bought a antique shoofly cover I had listed on ebay. It was for a photo shoot. So watcher her mags in case she does a feature on them!

ADORE your necklaces! When I get unburied from my doc bills you are on my dream list to buy! Have you thought of selling them on Esty?

So proud of how far and fast- you are on learning computer work!
Cheers and Blessings! Who was also Green before it was popular...I think most of us calihippy are that way.

I would have been obvious. I would have followed her around - taken photos, are you kidding me? Love her collections. Smart and savvy woman. I agree, she did her time, no complaining and came right back and started again. What a fun adventure for you! What were the hooks like?

Martha Stewart! HOLY CRAP!! How exciting and daunting, all at the same time!

Sometimes we see her on T.V here in Australia. I love the way her guests seem to be daunted by her, and get fumbly. Quite funny really. We don't have an equivilant here...a sort of home/craft/style royalty.Wonder what would happen if she came here?

I like that you bowed AND curtsied. No half measures for Martha.

Okay, that is pretty cool. I've always been a Martha fan. She's an amazing business woman.
