July 2, 2010 marks our 4th Anniversary in Savannah, Georgia! This photo from July 2006 was taken when we first opened the shop. (L to R): Me, Patty, (a much littler!) Andy & Howard Paul, Bob, our daughter Gina Benedetto with her (now) fiance Karl Cossio (love saying that!), both of whom do our great website, and our incredible Production Manager Evan ‘Andre’ Ellis 🙂
Thank you to everyone who’s been a part of our lives.
Here’s to a happy, healthy and prosperous Year 5!
