I have been blessed to be the steward of this grand old shop which has a Soul of her own! Started by Judy Rood in 1979 as The Pampered Lady, I hope I have lived up to her vision for the last 25 years. I know she keeps a watch over us, because when it's needed a special "found" recipe floats in, a contact from 30 years ago will call or a book of resources or notes will suddenly show up. Coincidence? I think not.
