"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...)













 Carol & Angie 
@ The Check-Out...







 *~* Carol & Angie *~*
Angie could not have asked for a better employee than CAROL!*!*!  
Carol IS-THE-BEST SALES PERSON - EVER!!!
Always greeted you with a Smile, Pleasant Conversation, Helpful, FaB with Re-Arranging/Displays, Great Eye For ViNtaGe!!!  Angie was soooooo lucky to have her!*!*!




With ALL of Angie's Talent, my guess is she's just taking a break ~ WaiTiNg 
 for "Something Else" to Develop...  Until we cross paths - AGAIN...
Big Hugs Angie & Carol
