Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving from Meow!

Wow, what a week. Irving Penn died. Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize. Meow went to Mississauga for a day. It rained. It shined. Leaves fell. Friends dropped by. We unpacked loads of fall and winter accessories, jewelry, and clothes.

And now its Thanksgiving! Enjoy your tofurkey! Please eat, drink, love, and drive responsibly. The planet thanks you, your loved ones thank you, and Meow! thanks you.

Meow! will be closed Monday, October 12 for Thanksgiving. Maybe we'll see you at an auction or out for dinner someplace?

We will re-open Tuesday, October 13 at 11 am.
