Chatting with my customers about their Bonanno sandals, conversation often comes back to "closet space". There's never enough.
1 - How big? The word "big" won't even fit thru our front door!
2 - How organized? Within and inch of it's life!
3 - Are sandals and handbags boxed and labeled? They will be once i have a closet that you don't have to make like Gumby to get into!
4 - Are boxes tossed and shoes/handbags spread on the floor? Quelle horreuer!
5 - What are my tricks to keeping my closet organized? A severe case of OCD!

I am also very impressed with how organized, and how much you can fit into a small space. I am taking notes!
I also find it really cool that you decorate the inside of her closet with art. I've never considered it.
I'm going to borrow your basket idea. I have so many small things I toss here and there ... now I can collect them into a few organized baskets.

My Niece Jamie is following in her Uncle's footsteps. Shoes!
We were all blown away by her attention to detail and refreshing ideas.
Unfortunately I'm not allowed to show off her sketches, but I can tell you this, they are not flat sandals. She has come up with 4 beautiful high heel designs that would make Manolo Blahnik stand up and take notice.
She went to her first shoe show in January with her uncle and realized she has a lot of learning, growing and exploring to do if she's going to make an impact in this business.
I've encouraged her to start her own blog http://strawberryblondeshoes.blogspot.com/search?q= sharing her shoe adventures. I hope you'll pop in now and then to follow what she's up to and maybe even share a comment or two.

Late last year Quest Magazine contacted me and requested a photo of our sandals because they wanted to do something on us. They said they'd send a copy of the magazine once it went to press. That was January.
I can't find Quest Magazine anywhere in our little town of Stuart, so with lots of gentle prodding on our end, and lots of promises on their end, I still haven't received my copy ...
I'm so curious. Has anyone seen the January 2009 issue? If so, I want details!
What kind of placement?
Is our photo a stand alone or mixed with other photos?
What is the topic?
Did they include contact info? If so, what?
I'll take anything and everything you want to share.
