Today was an exceptional day. The Times Union article about Silver Fox architectural salvage and home decor and the publicity behind the Valentine's Day special event resulted in hundreds of new people exploring our venue. There were times when the crowds were so thick, moving about was difficult. People were on their cellphones telling friends and family "you have to come down and see this place." The energy was phenomenal and I talked to each and every vendor and they were all pleased to see so many new people. Of course our regular and appreciated customers showed up which made for a great balance. A huge thank you goes to Laura from Bluebird books for organizing the Valentine's Day Love and Chocolate day. Perry was working the new soup and sandwich bar and "called for help" as the crowds pushed him to capacity. Our resident artist Amy, quickly switched roles and hungry bellies were quieted quickly. Comments on the food have been positive and Camille made her wonderful vegetarian Chile. We hope for the same tomorrow.
