Calling Card

Recently I ordered some blog cards, cards with my blog design and contact info on the back, and I love them! I've been wanting to take pictures more often in shops I like and write posts about them, and I thought I should start appearing more professional and give the shop owner a card when I ask. I was at one shop recently that I love and wanted to ask the owner if I could come by again sometime and take pictures for my blog. I had Lois with me and had just finished a mommy group stroll, so I was looking pretty shabby and thought it best not to ask then. Normally I'm not especially shy about asking, but I really want to take pictures at this particular shop (will tell you which one soon), and now, with my cute little card, I won't be so nervous when I ask. They look so nice with Katrine's nostalgic tea party cards that I think I will use those as my official thank you notes. I just dropped one in the mail today to Lisa and Elena.

I think calling cards are a great idea! They're very pretty too. It's so ironic that you have ties to the gloucester area- I was just looking at http://www.northriverinn.com/ and day dreaming about staying there. I'll have to get you to recommend some good places to shop if we ever get up there. Where is the Urbana antique/flea market? We'd love to check it out!

I love this whole concept Leigh and I think it is a smart move. Most store owners are flattered when someone wants to take pictures although it is always best to clear it with the owner first. That way they know the purpose of the pictures. I'm thinking of one particular high end store on Fillmore where they get very snotty about people not taking photos, even when people ask politely! But you know you have carte blanche at Willa Home!
The photos and posts are lovely!

PRECIOUS!! I love their simplicity Leigh and they are so very "you" ~ such a wonderful idea too. I've been giving things like this to friends and family but they are perfect to give shop owners so they can see your post about them! xxoo, Dawn
