I'd love to know what else is filling up space on their busy social calendars in Jamestown. It doesn't even conflict with the Gerry Rodeo this year. :lucyhaha:

Thanks!

 

Not my thing either, but having taken a gander at some of the people milling about the Rodeo last year, I understand your mom, I was certainly intrigued by them. haha

So I just saw in my FB news feed the event page for "The Lucille Ball".... And in the description it says "Find beautiful jewelry and accessories at The Lucy Desi Center's Vintage Boutique on 3rd Street in Jamestown or online at http://goo.gl/27aDHw". So... can anyone explain this, lol? I certainley hope they didn't turn one of the giftshops into a vintage boutique! The fashion line was one thing....

I bet they just have a little booth setup for the weekend. If I want vintage jewelry I'll hit Etsy or my local antique shop. Picked up a sweater chain this weekend.

I took quite a bit of photos and will post them later tonight... it is AMAZING... so well put together. It has clothing, furniture pieces from her house (her backgammon table, pictures, her TV, art and more) and so much more. Anyone who is here currently has to go take a look!
