My Trip to the Cinnamon Stick

Sunday was the PERFECT DAY! I spent it with some great friends, Tammy, Donna and Donna's wonderful Husband, George. I can now scratch something off my BUCKET LIST...I FINALLY met Miss Judy of THE CINNAMON STICK. I fell in LOVE with Judy the moment I walked into her Beautiful Shop and she gave me a hug! Judy and I have been cyber friends for a long time, she has helped me by giving me advice and directing me to other contacts for my business and with that a friendship formed...So now I can say that she will always be a special friend to me. I just wished I lived closer to her because I would love to hang with her...I think we may get into a bit of trouble but that would be FUN!
Tammy was kind enough to drive all of us to Hereford and what a fun trip it was! We arrived at The Cinnamon Stick a little early so we headed up the road a bit to a nice antique center. I bought two Ironstone pieces to add to my small collection. AND then we went to Judy's. When I walked in the door I was greeted by Judy with a big hug! Judy's Shop is AWESOME...I spent over 2 hours with her and it wasn't enough time...I didn't want to leave!

I was trying to take pictures of her Shop but my camera decided to act up..I think the Spirits in the Shop did something to the camera. LOL...I love Judy's stories of the Spirits...I do believe that if I were in the Spirit world I would want to live at THE CINNAMON STICK..those lucky Spirits! Judy did some blog posts about the "happenings" in her Shop...make sure you read them or just stop by The Cinnamon Stick and ask Judy to tell you the stories.
Here are pictures...please forgive me for the poor quality of the pictures...You just need to go and visit Judy and see the Shop in person.

Judy has a special touch with how she displays things in her Shop! I just wish I would have been able to take better pictures to show you just how nice everything looked.

Judy showed me her classroom...what a perfect spot for holding classes!

Here is Miss Judy waiting on her customers. She is such a pretty lady who is always smiling! WONDERFUL LADY! OH and you have to see how pretty she makes your purchases look...the bags of goodies that leave her shop are so pretty!

You all need to go and visit Judy at The Cinnamon Stick..tell her Patti sent you! I know I WILL be going back again!

I could not have explained Judy or the shop any better. I love her place. I tell all the time that I want to just hang out in the Make-Do Room!!

Patti - I'm so glad that you finally had a chance to meet Judy in person and visit her wonderful shop! It's one of my very favorite places to go. In fact, I'm probably going to be heading there next week! Glad you had such a perfect day.

Patti - I am so humbled I don't know what to say...except you flatter me too much (but I love it) XOXO!! I am so glad that the long trip made you happy - it certainly made me happy to FINALLY meet you and a real hug is the best. (a secret - I knew you were coming so when I showered and dressed I wanted to remember to put perfume on so when we hugged I would smell good....yeah...I forgot!) Best laid plans...(big smile)!!! Wished we had more time to talk but that will come soon. Fondly, Judy

Judy is the nicest lady isn't she? The Cinnamon Stick isn't far from me and I go visit as often as I can. I just love her shoppe!Just a couple of weeks ago I cleaned her out of all her Creme Brulee Room Spray. I hope she's restocked it as I'm going to need some more soon. Glad you had a great day

Hi Patti,
I just became a follower!
Don't know why I haven't been before but I'm here now.
Your trip to Judys looks wonderful.
We come to PA often but just haven't been up to her place yet...sometime! Your pictures make me want to go badly now.
