Ta Da!!

These past two years really have just zoomed by so......I guess you could say I have been having too much fun!!

And we're getting ready for more fun this Saturday, the 21st, with our Second Anniversary Brouhaha and Sale!!! The champagne and OJ for mimosas are already at my house (first things first, after all), the shopping list is done (and long!) for edibles that will be put together tonight and Friday. My good friend is sending more of her fun jewelry- overnight mail- since we sold through so much of it already. Bless you, Judith!! The store has been cleaned and "fluffed" and is ready for company!!!!

I have a table full of antique "smalls" that need pricing and placing around the shop, some signs to finish up, merchandise to be tagged at sale prices, problem!! Everything will be ready! So hopefully we'll have a great turn out!

I've even been making several things that have been on my "want to do list". A few things that have been in my own head and a few things inspired by others. Whether it is art or cooking or gardening or building or sewing--I think we are ALL creative, even you folks that say you aren't. I just don't believe it. We each have special talents.

If you are reading this, I do hope you will stop in on Saturday for some companionship, refreshments and the best selection. But remember, the sale will last until the 27th!!!
Until then,

Second Anniversary!!

An anniversary, as much as the idea of having "made it this far", is about thanking the people that have supported good goods the past two years. I have the very best customers!!!

We'll start the party on Saturday, June 21 with "pour your own" mimosas, lemon bars, and, as always at one of my parties --something chocolate!!! Everything, everything, everything in the store will be on sale with discounts from 10% to 60%. You won't want to miss this!!! The sale will then last until Friday, June 27.

In preparation for this stupendous event, we've been restocking, fluffing and unpacking new merchandise. I've been holding back some "new" old items to bring out, too. I've added some pictures to give you an idea of what is changing in the store but since we have been selling some large pieces (hurray!) and having to redo-again and again!--I can't promise it will still look like this in two weeks!!

Old auction paddles. How many auctions have I been to and I never got to use one of these cool oldies. I snatched them up when I saw them!

I'd posted these cubbies when they were still filthy. After hours of cleaning (with steel wool!) and oiling, they went out on the floor and sold in less than 24 hours!! Sold

A new cupboard to replace the cubbies-Adorable and fantastic storage. Sold

Another new cupboard top and table. (It's now stocked with starfish and potpourri.

My favorite thing in the store at this point. This solid brass chandelier was inspired by the austere design of turn of the century lighting. Comes with six Edison style light bulbs and is made from reclycled materials.

Herbs to be planted in pots made from reclaimed concrete bags. How green! Comes complete w/ seeds.

Jewelry made by my long time best friend, Judy, using vintage buttons, optometrists lenses, buckles and baubles. More on the way!!

We so look forward to seeing each and every one of you on the 21st. You are each so unique and dear that I truly mean it when I say: It won't be a party without you!!
