Photo's from Sweet Coco!

A week before our last Vintage Marketplace, I got an e-mail from one of my customers Coco from www.shabbycoco.com. She was letting me know that she was going to fly here from Korea to come to our show and do some shopping. She came bright and early Friday morning , and boy did she shop! She just sent me these photos today of me in my booth, if you enlarge the photos you can see up above where she wrote "I love Christie" and "I Love Christie's Roses" This truly blessed my heart and made my day! OX,Christie

  2. Love your post, and I was just blown away when Shabby Coco came to shop with us at CR! That is one woman that knows the real meaning of "shop till you drop"! She was so sweet, just like the photos she sent you!

    Take care, Sue

  7. I remember meeting her over a vintage pink truck that wasn't for sale. She was nice and bought almost everything pink before I got there.

  10. Hi Christie! She bought quite a few vintage pieces from me that day! How nice is it to meet someone you have known online for awhile! I met a swap partner on the Saturday of the show for the first time...I loved meeting her and she lives in San Diego so it was perfect!
    I bet Coco was so excited to meet the painter of the beautiful roses too! hugs! karen....

  11. Christie, So glad you got to meet this wonderful lady. I think we are all like her, we LOVE your roses, and your blog.
    It was hard to decide if I wanted to come to one of your trade shows or take one of your classes? As an artist, I knew I would always remember a painting class with the best rose painter in the world. I am counting the days for our July class.
    Your booth looked so creative! I have gone to many art shows and I can always tell if there is something great inside a booth, just by looking at the way it is displayed. That burlap ruffle was the perfect touch!
    Thanks for sharing with us.
    Blessings,Becky

  12. Christie, your booth was gorgeous. I thought coming from Los Angeles for the March marketplace was a long way -- Coco has me beat by thousands of miles! She obviously really loves your work to travel that far to purchase from you, which says a lot about your art really drawing people in!

    Best,

    Kimberly

    That was so sweet of Coco to send those pics with those comments. I hope to see more of her pics, she sure was snapping (and shopping) away that day! What a blessing she was to so many of us.
