Signature Event


Tax Day, Smax Day.  Who has time to be depressed when there is so much to look forward to? We are just ten days away from Kansas City's Dining by Design event and I happen to know that this year's table designers are not letting the ho hum economy inhibit their creativity.


While noshing with friend and DIFFA/KC board member, David Jimenez, a couple of weeks ago he mentioned that he was gathering popular signed design books to put in the silent auction.


Kelly Wearstler and Vicente Wolf had already agreed.  Hmmm.  "You know, I might be able to help."


So I sent out a few emails and the generosity of the design community did not surprise me.  Jonathan Adler and Margaret Russell said "Yes!" right away.


As an extra surprise, a thoughtful supporter was our advocate and this little treat arrived by post.

Oh, Michael.  I adored you when people were saying, "Michelle who?" All three volume were hard to hand over as I felt they would be quite happy in my own library.  C'mon, bid against me.

Don't forget, Table Hop Friday the 24th from 5 - 9, $25 and the public viewing the 25th from 9 - 12 - just $10.  To bid on these fabulous books you will need to attend the Gala, Saturday at 6:30, tickets $175.  Click here for more information and reservations.

Well done Mrs. B! I was going to be perfectly satisfied with just the Table Hop, but now I'm not so sure.

If you need any more signed books, I would donate a
signed "Edward Gorey" -"The Curious Sofa" -from my personal collection.
Anything to infuse the economy with a little book, and some humor and curiosity.
