Anniversary Gift!

Usually for my birthday or Christmas or our anniversary, Tim will stop by our friend Denny's store and buy me a handbag or earrings or a bracelet.

For our anniversary this year he out did himself...He bought the whole store!

Yes, really, he bought the store!

We are now the excited owners of Fab Fashion!  Denny approached us this summer about it and were we surprised!  We prayed about it and the timing seemed right, so we said "yes!"  We are grateful to him for helping us learn the business...we've been to NYC several times since Thanksgiving week, and only once was it for sight seeing! 

We are excited about this wonderful opportunity.  We feel like the Lord answered our prayer that we have been praying for years about having a business of our own.  We are so blessed to be the owners of a well established business.  Basically we will walk through the door as owners but it is the same store that Denny started.  Over time somethings may change, after all, styles come and go, but the basic business principles will remain.  Great products and great service. Oh, and for those of you not in the area we will be launching our web store this week!  You can preview it now by going to

Denny says the girls and I will have an advantage that he didn't have - we can actually wear the jewelry, scarves, sunglasses and carry the handbags!  

So, that is our excitement for the new year.   We would appreciate your prayers...
