the perfect day

Richard and I just ended a "perfect day" here in Carmine. With temps around 65, 0 humidity and sunshine, things started to really come together behind the scenes here. People have been knocking on the front door to the store, even though there is a CLOSED sign, i guess they are curious as to what is inside this funky turquoise building!! Only 100 feet away from a locked door, here we are working like hebrew slaves in the back yard, unnoticed! We are having fun creating and piling up fun unnecessary stuff for you!! To all you who invest in RUST, thanks!

Adios to the Holidays! We survived a wonderful and successful time here at the store. We are grateful, thankful and excited about the coming year! But what to DO with the VOID between now and spring!!?? How should I decorate the store?? I thought, considered and contemplated! I just was not sure!! So I decided to play it safe! LA VIDA LOCA!! WELCOME 2011!
