This past Christmas, I decided to go one stop personal shopping instead of my usual on-line shopping. I always worry about if it will get here on time and with the rotating strikes and such, I opted to go close to home. To Winchester and my good friend Sam at Samantha’s Emporium.
It was all so easy and simple to do, I just sent her a bunch of my photos that I wanted done into special personal memories for my friends and family.
Trust me, Sam can do anything….from tin frame collages to blankets to coasters to my personal favorite this year, pillows.
Sam also has all other kind of fun things from door knobs to ornaments and sometimes even antique stuff. Her store to me is like Mr Dressup’s old Tickle Trunk as you never know what fun stuff you’ll find next.
I’ve used Sam for many things from my best friend’s wedding BBQ to my hubby’s birthday party to Christmas, why not give her a try too. Not only are you supporting local but you’re also supporting a brave gal who quit her job to follow her dream of opening her own shop.
Check out the pillow I had made for my hubby of our late beloved Smokey….it’s almost like he is still there.
