"BitterSweet Goodbyes" Viva la Cottage Closes it's Doors...
It's been public knowlege for some time now, that Angie McMahon, Owner of Viva la Cottage ~for some 2 decades now, made the decision to "Close her SHOP Doors for Good"... This past Saturday was Viva's "Last Hurrah" - CeLeBraTing the closing with a SPaRKliNg Festive
*~* WiNteR WoNdeRLaNd *~* Holiday Market!*!*!
Here I am with Angie ~ saying our "Bittersweet" Goodbyes Last Saturday...
To Me Viva la Cottage was like a "little Anthropologie" up in the quaint resort town of Sister Bay Wisconsin... Approaching the STORE'S FRONT DOOR - which was almost always open, you were greeted by a wafting essence of some of the BeSt Specialty Soaps & Lotions... The soothing color schemes of "Creamy-Whites/Yellow/Beige" along with Angie's Talent for Unique Eye-Catching Displays,
Magically made you want to buy E*V*E*R*Y*T*H*I*N*G!!!
Unique Jewelry, Designer Clothing, & Just AwEsoMe ViNtaGe F*I*N*D*S ~
"Were Extra Icing ON-THE-CAKE" - For Me!*!*!
This Year's Winter Wonderland
was a "SpaRKliNg SHaBBy White-Out"
I bought sooooo many wonderful ViNtaGe Christmas F*I*N*D*S from Carol!*!*! ~ I'm keeping them a secret till my First HoLIDAy Show at Grayslake Antique Market on NOVEMBER 10th & 11th at the Lake County Fairgrounds in Grayslake, Illinois (I'll be posting MORE details about the Event as the date gets closer...)
