I remember like yesterday the tiny beginnings at the K.O.Corral with some silver jewelry and African Trading Beads. When we moved to the Stonewall Complex I needed some new ideas for merchandise to fill the space• So, with a lot of trepidations I brought in women's clothing and to my relief it turned out to be a great success. The move across the street to 2007 Main St provided me the right space to continue the growth of the business. I have dealt in and made jewelry for 35 years and been in the garment business now for 18 of those years. In my shopping I look for stylish, comfortable clothes made from mostly natural fibers by small manufacturers who pay a living wage and see their work as a help for the communities they produce in. The garments are made in the USA as well as places like India, Nepal, and Indonesia. The jewelry in the store is all sterling silver, set with a wide variety of gem stones, many rare or unusual. Most of the pieces are individually hand made by a few select trustworthy companies and artists and are one of a kind. It is very gratifying to see so many customers returning year after year. Many have become friends and we share the news of our lives with each other. I have met some of my closest friends because they walked into the store, and most importantly my husband. Christine Westrum, my manager has been a good friend for many years before she started to help me. She is a self taught gemologist and artist and has a knack to find the right outfits and jewelry to suit a person• She has been very instrumental in our success. The best part about having a business in Julian is the fact that it has allowed me to live and bring up my children in such a close knit and supportive community. It is home and I love it.

Something she has dreamed of doing for years is to crate an enchanted forest scene in her shop with magical fairies, woodland animals and pretty vessels. Well, this year she finally didt The fairies are ready to be admired as they wing their way around the forest with flowers dangling around a ceiling arbor bursting with sprays of flowers and vines. There are huge glittering leaves and fern fronds, with small robins, owls, quail and ducks hanging around as well. The store carries over 90,000 items, so if you haven't stopped by yet, please do!

January 2009 arrived and it was a long month, almost 4 ½ weeks on the calendar. It was a very busy month. We received a little rain on the third day measuring .25" on my gauge• It was very cold and windy the first two weeks, then very cloudy the third week. We received a surprise snowfall on the morning of the 26th, about an inch. It was a lovely snowfall, but very icy and slick on the roads and pavements. It measured not quite .25" in my gauge• Sun came out in the afternoon and melted most of it. We had more very cold, clear days the last week of the month and strong winds on the 29th and the 30th. The last day of the month was clear and warmer bringing to an end a beautiful month• 2. On the 18th we had the most beautiful sunset clouds. At the 'setting of the sun they were ablaze with brilliant reds. 3. It was nice to get back to regular schedules after the hectic pace of the holiday season which was great while it lasted. All evidence of Christmas signs and decorations were quietly put away until next season. 4. Weekends, town continues to be busy with many tourists and motorcycles. During the week it has been nice and quiet. 5. I have some new guests in my yard late at night. For the first time I am seeing two opossums eating left over cat food. They are cute. Then a skunk joins them, and one night a raccoon was in the group. They all seem to get along with the outdoor cats. 6. The four sheep up the hill behind me continue to come down the trail they blazed. They arrive early, about 6 a.m. and begin calling for breakfast. I give them a few slices of bread and late in the afternoon I give them greens - hay pellets. The rest of the time they are eating grass and weeds and are trimming up the hillside around me and the neighborhood. 7. Things have been rather quiet at the town hall. Craft shows have taken a break and start up again the first of February. We have Geoff Cahoon to thank for preventing a major disaster. During the windy days he was not aware of the gas leak in one of our propane tanks behind the town hall. People now and then complained about smelling the gas. When the winds had died down, he detected the hissing sound of gas leaking from one of the tanks and promptly called an emergency to the propane folks. They responded promptly and shut off the tank. Many tourists light up cigarettes while standing close to the tanks. They disregard the No Smoking signs posted. Thank you Geoff for being so alert! So we close the firstmonth of our new year and look forward to the activities and weather February will bring us. *** I'm glad I live in Julian*** Attention Community Groups If you have an event that is scheduled for the future make sure you get the information to The Julian News in time for inclusion in our calendar, We suggest at least three weeks prior to any event.
