GOING THROUGH THE NOTIONS
A retired schoolteacher#151;and yes, daughter of an F. Scott Fitzgerald fan#151;Daisy Buchanan has finally found her calling in the quaint village of Millbury, Pennsylvania. While her husband endlessly renovates their old house, Daisy happily presides over Sometimes a Great Notion, a quirky shop that sells sewing bits and bobs, antiques, and jewelry. nbsp; Daisy has her eye on an antique dollhouse and a classic Singer Featherweight at the local auction#151;until her friend and mentor, auctioneer Angus Backstead, is led away in handcuffs. It appears he bashed in the head of a drinking buddy who stole a set of fancy fountain pens. Daisy's sure the sprightly old-timer couldn't have done it. But if Daisy can't stitch together the bidder truth#151;and soon#151;Angus will be going once, going twice#133; gone forever. nbsp; Includes creative tips for vintage notions!
