A creator of childrens clothing in Del Rio and an excellent seamtress. In addition to caring for a family she also runs a shop, Paisley's Place, in downtown Del Rio.
I mentioned to her the rumors of the town I had heard before coming down here (that it was a dangerous place) and from a visitor in the hotel. The fact they were scared to come downtown and venture near the border. She mentioned not being so sure of the place when she moved down here, but it had grown on her. And it sure sounded like it was a good growth! Having items featured in a downtown storefront and organizing children's fashion shows was a good step to being a strong part of the community. No longer looking at it from the outside, but being a part of it.
Her husband was able to participate in the market too as his red pickup was in the car show. It was the marvel of many.
With her brilliant purple hair and her tattoo which is still in progress I just had to ask for her portrait, so she took a break from packing up and stepped out into the alley for the fading light for a quick two shots.
I hope you continue to enjoy your time down in Del Rio, Stephanie. And here's to plenty of success to Paisley's Place.
