Farewell, my friends

The store is emptying out

The store is emptying out

 

Our friends Steve and Elizabeth have chosen to close their store, Zipper, in Sonoma’s Cornerstone center, and I’m both heartbroken and jealous.  Heartbroken because Zipper was my favorite store in the entire world, always filled with unique and fascinating treasure I coveted and sometimes brought home with me.  Jealous because they plan to spend the next year travelling the world.

Having  managed to sell almost all of their inventory, in the coming 5 weeks until they shut the doors forever they will turn their store into a gallery for art works their friends have created.

Of course, we had to help them out a bit, so Gail bought some new earrings and reading glasses:

New earrings, new glasses.  There is a ring to match the earrings, she may buy it yet.

New earrings, new glasses. There is a ring to match the earrings, she may buy it yet.

 

I have always enjoyed shopping in Zipper, and will miss the store, and Steve and Elizabeth.  They promise to blog about their travels so I can enjoy the trip vicariously.

Bon Voyage, my friends.
