It's Been A Long, Hot Summer And I'm Shaking Like A Cool Lemonade

(Beware! Pictures below may inspire bag envy!)

Last week we had a big week at the store. NARTS had a conference in town, and our store was one of their stops in Dallas. We had hundreds of resale, consignment and thrift store owners come and see us on Friday. In order to make sure we had coverage I picked up a shift on my day off. And I am so glad I did! It was SO MUCH FUN!

Shorter Romper

Our guests had lots of questions about how we do things at Buffalo Exchange and we were so happy to have the opportunity to show them around and answer questions. They were all inquisitive, and so kind and it was such an honor to get to host them at the store for a bit (by the busload!).

Shorter Romper

On Sunday, Kerstin Block stopped in to see us (she had come by Friday as well, but before my shift) and I got to meet her, which was really exciting. She was wonderful, and since I had a register shift I had the pleasure of ringing up her and her friends, who were all having such fun it was contagious.

Shorter Romper

It was a great couple of days and I am so glad that I was there to experience everything.

That bag is seriously rocking my face off. Oh and how the heck can I petition Buffalo exchange to open a shop up in Burlington? Because that would be awesome (not for my wallet but definitely for my closet!)

I think you look so dang cute in that romper - and that bag is pretty phenomenal. It's the kind of bag I always hope to find when I'm out thrifting - but so far years of searching and no luck!

Melissa said...

Cool! It sounds like you had a great time! I'm really glad you're enjoying this job - I almost called it your new job but it's not really new anymore, right? :)

You look so stinkin' adorable in that romper!

I've met Kerstin several times in my career with the company and she is so inspirational. She also has a great sense of style, like your hip little grandma with a Swedish accent.

What a fantastic bag and romper combo! Love it! I didn't know you worked at Buffalo Exchange! How fun. It must be great to see all of the wonderful stuff come in and have your first pick. Jealous.
