The details coming out of Haiti are heart-wrenching and our prayers are with everyone affected by this disaster. If you would like to help, you can click on the blog button at the top of the page. It will take you to Food For The Poor's donation page for Haiti relief. They are a charity that has worked for many years in Haiti and the rest of Latin America. You can also visit their website here or their blog here.
Apparently not only is our shop's namesake, Bindi, adorable, sweet, and an arbiter of fabulous taste (demonstrated by her attachment to us of course!) she is also quite the little poet.
All this time, when we've thought she was just enjoying a good coze on the sofa, she's been composing jaunty little limericks. We thought we'd share a few of her pithy compositions about our shop with you. Below is the first of what we hope will be many that we have convinced her to share. (We find that a little bit of beef does wonders to overcome her bashfulness!)
So sit back, feel free to don your berets, grab your mug of coffee and enjoy!
There once was a dog named Bindi.
Her friends all thought her quite trendy.
So she opened a store,
Where she could sell more
Of all that was chic and stup-indi!
As the song goes...it's time to ring out the old and ring in the new.
2009 has been a difficult year for many. It was no different for us. Being a rather new business we would not be here if it weren't for the support and loyalty of our customers. Also, as some of you know, our brother (Kerry)& son (Stephanie) was diagnosed with cancer and has spent the last several months in treatment. Hopefully, he will be through and cancer free in a couple of months. To all of our customers, fellow business owners and friends who have offered prayers, comfort, support,and understanding we simply cannot thank you enough. God Bless you all!
2010 we hope will prove to be a much better year for everyone. We're terribly excited because it is the Bicentenial of our shop's home, the historic Stetson House. We plan to have many festivities throughout the year in celebration. We also plan on having Cowgirl Fridays and Tiki Thursdays this year (more details coming soon we promise!)
We hope that all of you have a fabulous New Year! Kerry & Stephanie
