"Sorry, I'm Sold"!

If you come in to shop at Country Roads today, you might see quite a few of these signs pictured above. These are our "HOLD" tags that have been made into "SOLD" tags because we ran out of the "SOLD" tags! I'm not complaining and the store is full of these signs right now. We had an amazing week-end, and I'm so grateful for all of you that shopped with us, thank you! We also had the pleasure of Mr. & Mrs Money Ring coming over from Japan to shop with us! We have called him "Money Ring" for so long that I have forgotten what his and his wife's names are. The name stuck because Money Ring wears a ring that has a large dollar sign on it covered in diamonds. Mrs. Money Ring wears a ring, I believe, that is in the shape of a horseshoe, and it is also covered in diamonds. I have a copy of a Japanese magazine that Hidea, one of our Country Roads dealers, gave me a few years ago. The magazine had done an article on Money Ring and his studio in Japan. There was a picture of his hand with the ring. Hidea translated it for us, and it said, "at Country Roads in America they call me Money Ring". Both Money Ring and his wife are truly the nicest people you will ever meet and so easy to work with. Below are some pictures of not only their purchases, but a lot of other stuff that has sold over the past few days!!








I was just blown away by how busy we were this week-end. I'm definitely not complaining and it keeps that "hope" alive in my heart that Country Roads really is an awesome store. And from my heart, a big "thank you" to each of you that shopped with us and also congratulated me on my new grandson. Your words always hold a special place in my heart, thank you!

It is so funny on how the Japanese market has changed over the years...I used to be a buyer for SPUTNIK a Japanese buying company in St. Louis about 13 years ago, that would scour all places of resale to ship to Japan. those were some good times shopping everyday for awesome vintage with the company credit card.
Glad you have had such a full weekend from one end of the spectrum to the other.
Congrats
