A few months ago, a friend of mine posted on FB to go to Flea Market Style's blog and vote for my favorite shopping town. Having a cute little shopping boutique myself nestled amongst several others along Lincoln Highway in DeKalb, I couldn't resist to vote for my very own town DeKalb, Illinois!
After I voted, Flea Market Style contacted me in an email encouraging me to write a little about each of the shops I mentioned when I voted. They also let me know DeKalb may or may not make the list, but it could receive an honorable mention. I was so flattered to even be contacted to write more, how exciting even if it didn't make the magazine! I wrote a little more as they asked and after a few months, I decided what I wrote wasn't going to make it. It was still exciting to me though...just the thought of being considered was an amazing blessing and gift!
