What a great day!!! Our little village was alive with action at 7:30 a.m. Dick went down to the shop and opened at 7:30 and I got there about 8:00 and the town was swarming with people! Fox 2 News Detroit was in town doing a "Zip Trip" about Holly. They have been featuring different Michigan towns that aren't far for people to drive to, but that have lots of activities. Can you believe they picked us??? The truck and satellite was parked one door down from me, next to Zanie Janie's!

The weather man was parked right behind him and ready to do the forecast.

There was a car cruise already started at 7:30 and it was sure a hit. "Hit The Bricks" in Flint and "The Woodward Dream Cruise" in Detroit are both coming up this month. Guess the cruisers are all getting anxious.

The station did a lot of interviews out in the street. If you didn't get a chance to be here and get on t.v., you will probably see shots of it on tonight's news.

Thank you Fox 2 for bringing so many people to our village today and for the rest of the summer. I was slammed all day long (a really good thing) and have to go pick up another load of furniture tonight! Thought I was going to coast until we go to markets next week, but I'll take all the business that comes my way.

We handed out a ton of flyers for our Fall Open House on August 27th - hope they all show up!

Well prim pals, it's time to go pick up another great load of antiques. Talk to you soon.

Until next time...
