Hi Julio! It's so good to hear from you! I've been missing my dear friend! I hope all is well and you are stll keeping busy.

I love Z gallery, we shall see what happens. It is crazy to think of all of the places that are dissapearing on us. It's almost like the end of an era!

When our children are older we'll be able to say remember that fabulous store such & such...and they'll look at us with blank faces thinking we are crazy. Just like I did with my Mom when she used to say that about Fedco or Gemco! LOL! Anyways, I'm rambling now..

Thanks for the information. I had no idea. I think I'll check this weekend to see if our local store has closed. I haven't been over there for a while, but I always found neat stuff in there if I was in the market for something.

I don't think Z Gallerie is going anywhere, I've read they are just restructuring. Something lots of companies have done in this economy. They have GREAT art, they better not go anywhere! As for Gemco and Fedco, I still miss them! They were my two favorites as a kid!

I'm sorry to hear about Z. I used to go to their galleries in San Francisco and Palo Alto - I still have a favourite aqua bowl that came from there!
