It was beyond a thrill to meet Kathy Griffin recently at the local River Rock Casino in Richmond, B.C. I have always loved her, going way back before her hit show ‘My Life on the D List’ . At first, I twigged to the fact that she tried to be annoying and offensive , which made her stand out…..it made me bond with her . It is as if Sandra Bernhardt and Margaret Cho had a baby who was born with permanent potty mouth.
In this photo, Brent and I are giving her a gift of yummy ‘Dollar Sign’ petit fours from Moore’s Bakery in Kerrisdale . They are inside the ‘book’ she is holding. It is a reproduction antique book box from HOBBS ( our other store). Brent enlarged the cover of Kathy’s book ‘Official Book Club Selection’, and tea stained it to look old. We wanted to give her something unique and that she (hopefully) wouldn’t throw away or leave in her hotel room. She loved it !
