There are no events scheduled.
I just now realized Linda was no longer with us when my annual newsletter I've sent her since '95 came back today. Belated condolences to her family, and to Leonard. I met her during my estate sale-attending days, when she was the only dealer who wouldn't snatch things from single customers like myself. We became friends, and when I left St. Paul 30 years ago, she had the pick of the vintage clothes I was leaving behind. I rested easy knowing she would love them as much as I did. I also got several exquisite things from her, and always visited her shop when I came back to St. Paul, until I stopped renting cars. I'll remember her as if she were still there, with her loyal dog of the time. A sweet soul is somewhere in Vintage Heaven, I know.
So sorry to hear about Linda. Our families had been friends from the time we were babies. I had not seen her for many years, but will always remember she was the one who introduced me to my husband. Rest in peace, Linda.
So so sorry to hear of Linda's passing - so quickly. I will miss my visits to her shop and conversations about this and that. She was excellent in her field of antiques/vintage clothing. Its so sad when illness takes over a person's spirit and body. I hope her suffering was short and she has found peace with her loved ones. I will also miss Leonard - her devoted canine companion - if for any reason he is need of a home, please let me know, although neighbors mentioned to me that her kind sister may have given him a home with her. God bless Linda!
