Living Vicareously......

We were picked!  Well, not really but in a round about way!  When we had our store, one of our favorite dealers brought in a fabulous old shoe shine chair to sell in her booth  A few weeks later, one of our customers came in and bought it to use in the movie that was filming in Nashville about Billy Graham's life.  She is a really cool girl with a cool job.  She has a big old warehouse out in a little town that she fills with unique and unusual things that she then  uses as props for country music videos and movies.  Leanne Rimes and Keith Urban were just a couple of stars who made videos out there.   When part of the warehouse was used as a antique mall, run by her mom, we went out there a few times, we even got to sit on the couch that was in the Leanne Rimes videol!  A couple of weeks ago, they showed an episode of American Pickers that was filmed here in TN and they went out to her place and bought the shoe shine chair! How fun is that!  Here is a picture of it when it was in our store.
                                            
               

Sorry it's a little blurry, I had to enlarge it!  So, does this mean
 that we were picked?

Till next time.....
