Personal Shopper

~*~
I've had the recent unique pleasure of becoming a personal shopper for one of Etsy's great talents, Emily over at EKRA.  As I well know, crocheting rag rugs takes a LOT of fabric, and the time spent finding the right colors is always longer than anyone would imagine.  Emily makes a LOT of rugs, but she happens to live in a small, somewhat thrift-store-challenged town.  From reading my blog, Emily knows my passion for thrifting and came up with a win-win idea for both of us.  I've really enjoyed thrifting with a special purpose when she "needs me", and I love to see the fabrics I send get made up into one-of-a-kind EKRA treasures.  And, as an added bonus, Emily is a super friendly and fun person to chat with, too!  Here's the latest batch of aquas and seafoams heading to Illinois.

You're the best! I'm enjoying working with and chatting with you too, and you've made my life so much less stressful in my "thrift-store-challenged" town! I can't wait to get this batch of fabric! However, as a thrift store addict myself, I do have to admit that every time I get a box from you, I feel a pang of jealousy that I didn't get to hunt them down myself. I love that rush you get when you find the perfect sheet!
Thanks again!!!!!

I've seen Emilys rugs on Etsy too, and I think they're brilliant :o)

Have a great day Jennie :o)
