Have you ever fallen in love with something that you couldn’t have (please note I said something, not someone!). Well. about ten years ago I walked into Aunt Sadie’s; a fabulous shop in the South End of Boston, and it was love at first sight. The way the tin was distressed, the flickering of the neon lights, the strong silence it projected as it hung on the wall ----- I was in love... Sadly, when I asked the clerk if it was for sale, I was told no. I left heartbroken, but visited the shop often to admire my love and dream of what might have been.
About a month ago, I was in town at a prop shop for an upcoming photo shot and my mind wandered to Aunt Sadie’s, so I thought I’d stop in for a visit. There he was “GUESTS”, just looking down at me, longing for the day when he’d come home with me. Of course I asked again if it was for sale, but was told no. I left my number with the hopes of a change of heart. Much to my surprise, a few days later I received a call from Gary, one of the owners letting me know that if I wanted it, I could have it! Oh, my heart skipped a beat, finally!
Now , the problem was bringing my new love home to my current loves---and asking them to help me hang it.
Yes, there were some snickers and rolling of the eyes, but eventually my wonderful husband Matt and fabulous son Casey spent a good chunk of their Saturday hanging this incredible sign( which weighs a ton and had to be grounded).
I love it...thank you
Matt, Casey and Aunt Sadie
