The Shop Front Window

Maureen, Peter and myself changed the front window the other night.  This is one of my favorites.  Who am I kidding, I love all of them.  It is so much fun to create these windows, and then  hear what the dealers and customers think about it. 

My 15 Minutes of Fame on Fox 25 Zip Trip

Since I knew Fox 25 Zip Trip was coming to Wrentham on August 6, I decided to email them about the Wrentham Country Store months before hand.   Just two days before the show, the producers called me, and asked if I would like to be on the show, live. They told me to bring a table with a few things from the shop, and talk for about 2 minutes.  I thought, why not, it would be great publicity for the shop.  When I drove up to the common that morning, there were hundreds of people everywhere.  I parked the car, and ran over to where they were shooting with my table and box of wares.  I had about half an hour to wait, and was I getting nervous.  
This nice man standing near me, George Elias of Wrentham, helped me out quite a lot.  My mouth was getting dry, and he happen to have a mint on him, and he also took most of these pictures for me.  If you go to Fox 25 zip, you can see the entire interview.  It was quite an experience.  We actually have had many people come into the shop that saw the show.  Some people even wanted to buy exactly what I brought with me that day.
Kim Carrigan of Fox 25 was very gracious.  She took endless pictures with everyone.
