You'll never believe who I got to meet last night!

Last night was the opening Vernissage for Design Miami, a show that was born as an outgrowth of the famed Art Basel Miami Beach five years ago. It began in the historic Moore Building in the Design District, but for the last two years, it has been in an impressive temporary tent. The event was sponsored by Audi, and so my husband made me take a photo in front of the car...

This booth was one of my favorites, with whirling dervishes for lighting!

The highlight if my evening was that we ran into none other than Keith Johnson of Anthropologie and Man Shops Globe fame. For me this was the equivalent of meeting a major Hollywood celebrity! I quickly asked him if I could take picture with him and he was embarrassed saying this was the first time this had ever happened to him. I explained that I was an antiques dealer and had enjoyed watching his show. We then exchanged some notes about shopping in France and having some friends in common. I gave him our card and hope he comes to visit our shop one day. Here's the photo, I'm smiling so big I couldn't contain myself. Now it's published for posterity. I took more photos of our fabulous night out, so stay tuned!

Ooh, how exciting! I think Anthropology is my favorite shop on the Country Club Plaza here in Kansas City!

Olguis!

You know I thought I saw you and your husband out of the corner of my eye that night, but it was as we were passing one another so I wasn't sure. Now that I see you in the picture, I can remember your skirt...it was you! I'm sad I didn't get to say hello and meet Doug, I would've loved to.

Until our next encounter...un beso!

I'm so jealous! I think that meeting Keith Johnson would be way more exciting than any Hollywood celebrity. How fantastic.
