Shop Lola Bean

This is a personal story of mine. It's not all the time that my shopping means something but when it does and someone asks then, I do tell.

Someone extremely close to me past away when I was ten years old. Since then it's been my belief that this person is my angel. The one that looks over me, takes care of me, and makes sure that I get a little tap on the shoulder whenever I'm not on the right path. With this thinking came a huge liking of angels and angel wings to the point where I almost got a tattoo of angel wings (thank goodness I didn't get that tattoo done because I would've removed it by now).

Fast forward to Christmas 2006,when I went to Bryant Park during their Fêtes de Noël, a shopping festival during the holidays where the park is full of vendors. I entered a shop called Lola Bean and I saw a necklace with a pair of angel wings. It hit a nerve right away when I saw the necklace, but I didn't have money that day. I took a business card with me, to check their website, but the item wasn't there. I sent an email and they answered back almost immediately, with the response that Lola Bean Team was travelling but once they got back they would handmake my angel wing necklace and ship my order.

I love Lola Bean for their great customer service, but more importantly for allowing me to express myself with this piece of jewelry that I wear so proudly, because of what it represents.

Thx so much for your recent comments. I've had the pleasure to meet the folks behind Lola Bean and they are a very sweet couple. We were vending at a show together in San Fran and they had a table behind me. Thx for adding my link to your blog and I've done the same.
