You’ve Got Mail
One of my all-time favorite movies is “You’ve Got Mail.” Not because I LOVE Meg Ryan (although I do). Not because I LOVE Tom Hanks and the chemistry those two have together.(Think “Sleepless in Seattle.) I LOVE “You’ve Got Mail” because I LOVED the Shop Around the Corner.
I have many “fantasy careers” and one of them is to own Kathleen Kelly’s (aka Meg Ryan’s) Shop Around the Corner. A quaint, cozy little book store with lots of vintage appeal,filled with books, gifts & accessories, and all things literary. A shop with a charming store front window with white Christmas lights, decorated in a way that says “Come and stay awhile. Explore. We’re so happy you’re here.” The UN-big-box-store filled with discounts and short on service.
Enter Julie Cade.
Julie and her husband, Lucas, (her real-life Tom Hanks) own a lovely version of my “Shop Around the Corner” in Gettysburg, PA. It’s called Pages of the Past and it’s right around the corner in the center of town at 13 Baltimore Street.
When you meet Julie you’ll agree that she is the real life version of Kathleen Kelly. Blonde, classic, beautiful in a non-threatening way that makes you wish you were already best friends. And she has the personality to match my fictional movie crush!
Must Love Shoes is proud to present a fun “girl’s night out” at Pages of the Past on Thursday night, February 6th from 6-9 pm. Julie is graciously offering refreshments and free foot massages in exchange for your donation of a pair (or several) of new children’s shoes to be donated locally. In addition, I’ll be firing up the stories in my speech called “These Boots Were Made for Walking” and we promise you a fun night of laughter, connection, and fellowship.
You simply MUST come see my REAL “Shop Around the Corner!” RSVP to attend before February 1st because seating will be limited. Contact Julie Cade at (717) 334-0572 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hope to see you there!
