It's Funny How Life Turns Out Sometimes....

When I was a little girl, I always loved horses. How many of you had one of these steeds as a child?
This is a photo of me at four years old....just 43 years ago as of this Friday!!!
OMG, did I just tell you how young I am!!??? LOL

Do you remember riding the mechanical horse at Ann & Hope for a dime?
Oh, a trip to that store, was never complete without a ride on that wonderful pony with the western saddle..... I remember it like it was just yesterday.

As I got older, I also remember how I would make jewelry, or seashell mirrors, or pet rock paperweights, and go around to all my neighbors, and ask them if they would like to buy something. So, I guess you would say that my entrepreneurial skills go way back. It's just in my blood. I love people, and I love seeing them happy with their purchase. And some days, you may visit Brown & Hopkins, and not buy anything, and that is OK too. We enjoy the visit with you.

The other day we had some very nice compliments........

A man said, "I just love coming into this store. It is such a stress reliever!".

A lady said, "In this day and age, customer service is everything, and I always feel so appreciated when I shop here.".

Another said,"This is my most favorite store in the whole wide world!"

And from a child, "This is the best store in the world!".

Comments like those make our day!
Thank You!

Liz...I bought a rocking "steed" almost identical to that for my granddaughter when she was four. She saw it at an antiques store and loved it. She is a big girl of almost 6 now, and doesn't ride as much anymore, but 'Horsey' is still here! You were sure a cutie! Happy Birthday on Friday!

I find the feed burner difficult to use. Not sure I enter the contest.

Thanks Michele
