When you hook each day......
I asked Lynn Rodgers if she minds my calling her a bag lady and she said no, other people have apparently done the same, but I sometimes wonder if I don't go too far. She's so pretty, petite and feminine that the bag lady moniker doesn't fit but I can promise it's said as a term of endearment.
I call Lynn this because she always comes into the shop on a Saturday with one of my recycled kraft bags filled with her latest projects. The bag is ancient as I haven't stocked them for some time and it's more wrinkled than a dehydrated prune. I recently ordered new kraft paper bags in navy and red so I gave her a new one for the spring and summer season to tout her rugs in style!
Truthfully I love the fact that she recycles the bags.....that was the reason I choose them. There's way too much plastic in the world so I'm trying to do my part. Over the past year I was using the TShirt bags but it always made me cringe and maybe they're cheap but they certainly aren't cheerful. Sometimes you have to spend a bit of money for the look you want to represent. We've just had a wonderful gold foil, stick on label designed that should soon arrive...our signature brand on the bag for a bit of classy, boutique style for the shop.
Not that I have to point it out...you have eyes.....Lynn loves colour in her rugs! You never know what to expect as she pulls her pieces out of the bag but I'll tell you this, I am always delighted with her show and tell and totally smitten with her skies as they are usually fantastically wild, like sunshine, lollipops and rainbows. Lynn makes me want to step outside the box a bit but I'm dealing with a pretty long stick somewhere so it's difficult to maneuver.
Lynn sells her pieces on Etsy and her page is called Liveartist if you'd like to check out more of her rugs. If you would like a commission she can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
