Pinky's Place Revisited

It's been a few months since Pinky's Place opened and Sunday afternoon was the perfect day for a visit.  The store is packed with vendors of antiques, home accents, collectibles. jewelry, and many handcrafted and artistic collectibles.

The featured vendor today was Sue Hans, with "Hans-On Design". She specializes in custom furniture finishes and is a distributor for CC Caldwell Paints, manufacturer of chalk and clay based paints.

Pinky and members of her family were on hand to dish out  free ice cream for the many patrons of the store.
