had a store in Tustin, California for 20 years before
relocating to Central California in San Luis Obispo.
They developed a strong following in Tustin
and are forever hearing how they are missed.
Recently the Assistance League of
Santa Ana contacted them to see if they
could work on a special event on the
ladies yearly trip up the coast of California.
An after hours wine and shopping event
was decided upon and the date was set.
Not wanting to miss out on something
different and fun I went up to see if 
I could be of help.
Jan, who is responsible for all of the
great displays did her magic.

  Vern made sure the garden was blooming

The table looked great where the wine
and goodies were waiting to be tried.
These cones filled with nuts looked and tasted great.
Mixed nuts combined with butter, cajon pepper,
rosemary, paprika and brown sugar, heated
and mixed together.  They were worth the effort.
The beautiful crystal bowl had lentils 
on the bottom to hold up the cones.
Another easy and crowd pleasing appetizer.
Brie covered with a layer of Jalapeno Jelly
topped with crushed pistachios.  

Nothing left to do but wait for the guests
and Maddy was our look out.
We were so impressed when the touring bus 
arrived, it just fit in the parking lot .

 The ladies enjoyed the store
 and Jan enjoyed entertaining her
old customers in her new location.
 These after hour events are a nice way
to enhance the business of the store, and
now that the WEB SITE
is done all these ladies can
visit the store whenever they want.
For me it was a great chance to spend 
time with my friends.
