Happy Halloween

Check out Elspeth in her wicked cute kitty costume! She is the daughter of Emily, one of my employees and a real sweetheart. She's really crafty too- Emily made the cheetah print on her tights! Maybe I can get her to make me a pair...

It rained on our parade...

Today was our Free People sweater sale! We had a great morning but things slowed down with the showers that arrived in the afternoon.

The Marketplace hosted trick-or-treating for children and a parade that went on despite the rain. Here is Bobby-Jo from The Shoe Shop (our neighbors), passing out candy to some local kids.

Crazy Weather

I really am enjoying this freakish fall weather but 75 degrees at the end of October?! What's a girl to wear? I mean you can't wear light colored summer clothes and by this point your legs are so white, exposing them can cause blindness. Luckily, the Dittos are light enough, I can bear to wear them through this heat spell.

Let's hope for cooler weather for the Free People Sweater Sale!

Nylon magazine

We made it in the November issue of Nylon! Yipee! They mentioned our two stores (mixed them up) and a picture of our sister store, tribeca, is on the next page. It's so fun to see our customers and friends on the pages of Nylon!

They said it couldn't be done. Despite a steady 15 MPH wind ripping off the lake, we managed to get a bonfire going at my father-in-law's lake house. Soon the whole party was down on the beach drinking Oktoberfest beer and hauling driftwood to keep the fire going. Buddha developed a fascination with the zebra muscle shells and had to be restrained from eating them. Despite the wind and chilly weather, it was a great way to send off the summer and greet the next season.

It's been a busy couple of weeks and the weather has been gorgeous. Last week we had UVM homecoming/Parents weekend, Canadian Thanksgiving, and parents weekend at Champlain college the week before.

We're in the midst of planning the Free People sweater sale on October 27th and a trunk show with French Connection on November 10th. Stay tuned!
