Good goods at good goods

Well the first order of business, of course, is Mothers Day and it's less than a week away. Not to worry: the store is packed, literally, with out of the ordinary gifts any mom would love. A reminder that we have "Wish Lists" so that you can get exactly what you want this year!!!

We got the four big boxes of new topiaries and plants open up, watered and on the floor. They are just beautiful this time. Even the smallest Angel vine plants are massive so the store looks lush and green and "mahvalous".

Then a dealer I love to see show up at the door came by and I couldn't resist buying three truckloads of furniture from him. took hours getting it all in place ( some of it went home for a bit of medical attention) and even then the back room is crammed.

Take a look at this huge piece from an old Nampa hardware store. One hundred and twenty cubbies plus more storage below. Each cubby has a metal slot that will hold a label and, being all real wood, this is going to clean up into a beautiful, unusual statement!!

After the store is redone on such a large scale, I love to take some pictures to entice everyone to come in. I had not been taking good photos my last few tries so I finally managed to hold the camera steady and get some clear shots.

We've been selling wheatgrass packaged by "moi" in little muslin bags. If you've never grown any of this, it really is fun. It's so fast to sprout and will be several inches tall within 10 days so even impatient kids get a kick out of it.

Pea pods, new journals, fun crown hooks, new scents on some spring candles, etc etc. Come see!!!

Take care & enjoy this great spring weather we're having!

Cheri - your store looks fabulous! Love all the antiques you just purchased - how wonderful to have dealers just "stop by"! (On second thought...that would be really dangerous!
