I'm in Flea Market Style Magazine!

Yep! I'm in Flea Market Style Magazine!  How EXCITING!  I know, I know! It's just a blurb...But it's exciting to me!

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!

A few day's ago, I got an early morning text from a friend of mine, Rachel from My Vintage Verve.  She said "Love your shopping selections in FMS mag. Your in a  magazine right along with Miss Mustard Seed.  Your a super star!".  Having so much on my plate, and completely absorbed with the event's of our Ribbon Cutting, I completely forgot about my prospect of having my blurb published.  I responded to Rachel with "Think you sent this to wrong person:).  Mind you, it was early and my mind was still foggy with the sweet bliss of just waking up...then after that nano second passed I realized what Rachel was texting  about!  I quickly replied WAIT! THEY PRINTED IT??!!  She said "Lol, yes go buy lots!"

I am so blessed to have my little blurb published in their Readers' Choice Favorite Cities on page 20 in Flea Market Style Magazine!  Like I said, it's just a blurb about my favorite shopping places in DeKalb, but it's so exciting to watch our little town grow with wonderful opportunities such as being published in a national magazine!

My cute boutiques listed in my blurb are:
No. 20 My Favorite Things
No. 21 Cracker Jax
No. 22 Primitive Chic
No. 23 Lavish Thrift
No. 24 Na-Da Farm Barn Sale
No. 25 DeKalb Corn Fest

You can find the complete review in Flea Market Style Magazine along with several cities across the USA!
I hope you take a moment to enjoy the small things that make you happy!
