Customer First…Now, A FaceBook Friend and More!
How many times have we met people and then become Facebook friends? Lots!!
But once in awhile you meet someone you connect with because you share so many of the same passions!
Julie June Stewart wandered into our shop almost a year ago to the date…in August 2014.
She found this gorgeous purple hat…said she wanted to wear it to the races. She’s crazy about horse racing!! Me too!! And I’m very fond of hats also! I’ve tucked my Kentucky Derby hat in a closet, ready for the day I finally get on a plane for Churchill Downs.
We hit it off right away. As she wandered around the store we visited about our love for antiques, horses, hats, animals, and writing. She’s an accomplished writer. One of her latest articles features animals on the backside (of the track) who live with the horses. Her delightful essays always include adorable photos.
Last year, after she returned home, we became FaceBook friends, and we’ve stayed connected.
When Julie messaged me she was in town and wanted to come by our shop, I was overjoyed! She’s an Airspace Program Manager for Disasters and has been extremely busy with all our fires here in Northern California. I knew her time was limited, but feel privileged she took an hour or so to visit…and shop with us!
I’ll miss her, but know we’ll stay in touch via FaceBook…and of course, I’ll be able to read all her wonderful columns! Thanks Julie for stopping by!
