Hello lovely readers.
Today is a sad day here in blog-land. Besides the unthinkable tragedy that is going on in Haiti there are others here in our great America suffering as well. One of them, is my online friend and acquaintance Gina Drennon of Feather Your Nest. Gina's husband tragically lost his life due to a heart attack at the young age of 39. Gina and her husband were high school sweethearts having been married for 16 years and have two sons.
Gina has been a long time supporter of Vintage Indie. You may have seen Feather Your Nest in the Vintage Indie Market several times as well as the store tour and interview I did with Gina in July 2008.
Gina has decided she must close her brick and mortar store in Eureka Springs to focus on finding a steady income for her and her boys. I can't even imagine what Gina is going though. Honestly, when I first heard the news I called my husband just to hear his voice and I've been thinking about what I would write here for a couple of days. As a believer in God, I know his grace is good and his comfort is greater than anything anyone could provide. I'm praying that peace be in her heart, that she grow strong in him and seek him for help to the answers and unforeseen future she is now facing.
Gina is also closing her online store and moving inventory fast to prepare for the next step. I'm asking my readers to pull together and do what you can by making a purchase from Feather Your Nest.
I know what an amazing online community and group of readers I have here. I know that people from all over the world pull together when there is a need. I truly appreciate all of you and I know if you can you will help.
There will be no new posts here at Vintage Indie on Monday, in hopes that everyone will visit Feather Your Nest.
If you could, I would greatly appreciate it if you could blog this, tweet, facebook and whatever else your heart leads.
UPDATE: As of right now, the Feather Your Nest website is no longer live. I will keep you updated if it goes live again.
