  Checkered Corner
is making a MOVE!

February 19~20~21 will be my last
weekend at Curtice Street Marketplace

Seems like yesterday in many ways that the search was on looking for occasional market rental space in Colorado and then finding this MAGNIFICENT GEM of a house with it's charm and character. I feel very blessed to have been part of such a unique place and meeting the wonderful network of creative women that will remain my treasured friends.  

Very bittersweet!  
The bitter part is definitely leaving behind great customers that have become dear to me.  I will truly miss seeing you every month!  I have so enjoyed our conversations and seeing what sparks your interest in the shop.  

The sweet part for me is the search for new beginnings.  THE THRILL OF THE HUNT! 
I plan initially to dust off the camera, make some time to travel and keep believing that what's meant to be will always find a way.

It's very hard to wrap words around ALL that has touched and inspired me "playing" in this house every month.  As I'm looking for the next chapter to unfold  .  .  . a new sandbox for my toys . . . closer to Castle Rock perhaps, I'll keep you posted.  I will be using my website to chatter with you and Facebook to post photos of the HUNT and GATHER where my travels take me.  Please keep in touch, I'd love to hear from you and hope that our paths will cross again soon.
