 And thank you to all of our visitors - your support means a ton and we were so pleased to have helped you cross things off your holiday shopping lists!
  Special thanks to Bonnie Brynteson for being the #1 biggest-helper-of-all-time - with set-up and planning as well as emotional support. + Special Thanks to Doris Mae Lentner for her lovely cookies and brownies, and to the Boutique "Helpers" who volunteered to take a "shift" during the sale - Kara Phillips, Anna Zahler, Kristy Simmons and Kevin McBride (well...I volunteered him anyway...)
