Style Tour, Day One!

I’ve been running around like a crazy(er) person visiting shops for the Style Tour and getting in touch with boutique owners to plan visits.

It’s nice to be able to keep things close to the vest, though frankly, things have been a bit boring. Let’s see: I spent last Sunday running up and down Main Street like a crazy person during Second Sunday in OTR. After taking hundreds of pictures, chatting up...
