I am so looking forward to meeting as many of my readers as possible, I’m hoping that I’ll at last be able to put faces to many familiar names that regularly pop up in my comment box, on the facebook page or on instagram.
The tour is ambitious and will be pretty much a whirlwind, but I guess that’s just the way it has worked out, fitting in as many venues as I can as I move from the east coast over to the west.
Of course we had to make choices when designing the tour, and I am so lucky that several wonderful stores and venues reached out to me, and that the schedule has slotted together so neatly.
So, without more ado, the details of the nine events are as follows:
23rd June we kick off in Florida with an evening reception with Susie Busch-Transou and her team, at Hearth and Soul, which is so much more than a home decor store in Tallahassee.
Friday 24th begins at the store The Bookshelf in historic Thomasville GA, where Annie Jones is dedicated to sharing the simple southern life. The day ends beside the white beaches of Seaside Florida, where I am invited by Laney Blanchard to sign books on the front porch of Sundog Books.
On Sunday 26th June I shall be in Marietta GA, at Market with a B, a sweet home decor store recently opened by Terri Hendricks on the town square.
The next day, Monday will see a change of pace as I am invited by Charles Nevinson to an event at the very grand Architectural Accents in Atlanta; it will be fun for me to be surrounded by French antiques so far from home.
From Atlanta, I am headed to cooler mornings in Cashiers NC, where on Tuesday 28th I look forward to meeting Cheryl Stinnett and the members of the local gardening club, and even visit a couple of gardens, before speaking and arranging flowers at the High Hampton Inn and Country Club.
Wednesday 29th sees me at Kansas City MO, where I am excited to meet Mary Carol Garrity at her beautiful store Nell Hill’s. I’m amazed by Mary Carol, who is not only a gifted interior designer but also committed to working closely with charities.
The next morning I’m off to Chateau Sonoma which is close to San Francisco. It’s an honor to be invited by Sarah Anderson, I have heard so much about all that she does, not only at Chateau Sonoma but also at Ramekins and her event venue The General’s Daughter.
I finish the tour on Friday 1st July at Fullerton CA, where my friend Jeni Maus will have just opened her brand new store, The Found Shop. I am so happy for Jeni, this is a new adventure for her and fans of her fantastic style are thrilled to be able to purchase the looks that they have loved in her rental company for so long.
Full contact details for each venue are below, and also at Eventbrite under the search Sharon Santoni. Please feel free to share with friends and on line, merci beaucoup!
