Great First Week In Lawrenceville!

Greg Williams and family visited historic Lawrenceville for the Rock N' Ribs Fest October lst. Good to have my Lilburn friends stop by the shop!

Becky Kidd set up on the square with her pet portraits October lst.  We had an art reception for her last night, Friday, October 7th. Her work is on display in the shop through the end of October. Her pet portraits make wonderful holiday gifts! Contact shop for details on custom pet portraits.

Display currently at shop.

Outside The Box game creator Rick Sugarman (that's his brother in photo) entertained visitors at our booth in the square October lst too.

Hollywood comes to Lawrenceville. Writer/Producer Elisa Bowman stopped by the shop for a meet and greet October lst. Pictured here Ben, a member of our Writers Guild. Elisa is teaching two courses at the shop, October 15 and October 29, ten til noon. Ben was the first to sign up!

Photos by Richard Ferris for sale along with a large selection of photographic cards, perfect for framing, are in the shop. Richard had his photo exhibit at the shop in Old Town in June. I am excited to have his work in my new space!

My old shop sign hangs on the upper inside wall of the shop.

A bit of shop merchandise below!

Of course, my book is available at the shop, along with a lovely selection of hand stamped and colored art cards by Audrey (my talented mother!)

A touch of Halloween in the front window. Note the book, Killer Condo, by Georgia Adams, The LitChix. 
This trio of ladies write under the name Georgia Adams and had a book siging at the old shop. Perfect mysteries to haunt you in October!

Lots of new/vintage jewelry came in this week.

Tarnished silver and vintage etched glasses.

Boots in the sweetest colors. If only those silver ones would fit me!

The front walls of the shop are filling up with vintage art.

The Lady Of Lilburn (named by Hugh Wilkerson when she was outside my shop in Old Town) is enjoying her new home. We both miss our friends in Lilburn and hope you'll come by to visit often. Always a pot of coffee brewing and a few great stories to share!

Shop hours are Wed - Sat 11am to 7pm and on Sundays from noon til five. I still run a few minutes late - I blame it on the dogs, and I am sticking to my story!
