Almost Famous

Over the Rainbow

Well, Not Really— But Stoked Anyway

I recently got the opportunity to do an interview article on a Magazine Website called Canvas Rebel whose mission is to tell stories that, in their words, feature Conversations with Entrepreneurs, Artists & Creatives. A special thank you to friend and fellow entrepreneur, Amanda Holstien at Mother Mary’s Spiritual Goods in Marfa for recommending us.

I enjoyed doing this Article with Canvas Rebel and really appreciate both them, and the opportunity to talk about our small business.  So many of us are struggling right now. It is so nice to be recognized for all the hard work and creativity that goes into the day to day running of the shop, the website and social media.

Maybe Not Famous But Grateful

I am grateful for the friends we have made in Fort Davis, in Marfa and in Alpine, many of them small business owners themselves. I am also ever so grateful for all of our regular customers, for the chance to get to know some of these lovely people better (and also for all of the customers who come from places like, Austin, San Antonio, Midland , El Paso, or even Houston, Dallas or Fort Worth. Many of these are regulars also, coming once twice or more often a year, and including us a part of their visit.) 

It is a pleasure to see more and more familiar faces as time goes by. And while I am expressing gratitude, I have to include my two business partners. This shop would not be the cute (my description, #cutestshopinfortdavis) and cool place that it is without them. Their creative flair and hard work shows in every corner of this store, both out front and behind the curtain, so to speak. They are not only my Kids, but my friends and sounding boards as well, and two of the most talented and creative people I know.

This has been a challenging year in many ways, but I wouldn’t trade any of this and the many friends and acquaintances we have made here for anything.

Thanks again, Canvas Rebel, for this awesome opportunity. We truly appreciate it.
