Mimi caught my eye, well, her hat did first. And I told her so. I think that she was flattered, and happy to be photographed.
Originally from Chicago, she is now a full time Sarasota resident. Recently, I've met several strangers who have relocated from Chicago. Hmmm... About the move, she said “Yes, I'm no fool.”
Mimi assembles jewelry and sells it at local shows. She has no store of her own, but her pieces are displayed in several local shops.
