Yesterday we had a major mishap. Crash! Boom! SMASH! It was as if I was in a Batman episode and the words were coming across the screen....
Casualty: 4 broken depression glass compotes, 3 French drinking glasses and 1 very rare antique cake plate from the 1800's.
Culprit: A mama who was busy talking on her cell phone outside our boutique while she allowed her two 4 year old twin boys (who were darling, darling cute) to romp in our boutique unsupervised.
My heart breaks a little when set designers use our antiques for films wherein the items get run over, broken or thrashed (ala Johnny trampling our dishes in Alice In Wonderland). My heart breaks bigger when children use our antiques for batting practice.
Thanks to Friend Nancy, we now have a new sign for the boutique.
