A Holiday Thank You

I just want to take this time to thank Sandi, A Cottage Muse, for working with me at the shop today until 2:15pm on Christmas Eve.  We always have those last minute shoppers coming in to make sure that they haven't missed a thing before Christmas Day. 
Thank you also, to Lee, one of the Shop Girls, who stopped by the shop today with a tray of homemade cookies.  Yummy!

I also want to thank all our customers who made this Holiday Season one of our best.

From my home to yours.  I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Healthy and Happy New Year!!!

This is one of my loves, Clarence (AKA Big Boy), the cross eyed cat.

Holiday Happenings

Where does the time go?  I can't believe that Christmas is only a few days away.  There is still so much more I want to do.  Only time will tell if I get it all done.  I haven't been blogging much lately, because of my crazy schedule.  But, I wanted to show a few pictures of the shop and one of our special visitors during our Holiday Vintage Market Open House a few weeks ago.

I'm on the left, Shop Girl Sandi, aka, A Cottage Muse, in the center, and Sandy Foster, blogger from My Shabby Streamside Studio, is on the right.  Sandy has been featured in many magazines and books and The Nate Berkus Show.  Sandy was at our shop to see if Shop Girl Sandi would help her sell one of her beautiful mirrors.  The mirror is hanging in Sandy's booth now, it is just exquisite.  It was an honor to have Sandy and her sister Nicki in our shop and also and honor to have a chance to sell one of her mirrors.

If that wasn't enough excitement for awhile, we have also had one of the best holiday seasons ever.  The Shop Girls have done a tremendous job with their booths.

The Winner Is..............

Ever since we were voted as one of the Top 80 Antique Malls in the country by Flea Market Magazine, I wanted to do something special for our customers.  So, I decided to have a drawing for a $100 gift certificate to the shop.  Well, tonight, as we closed the shop, I drew the name of the winner.   We had over 1200 names in the basket. 

And the winner is..........Dianne Freed.  Congratulations Dianne.

Holiday Market & Sale

The Shop Girls have been bringing in some amazing things for our week long Holiday Market and Sale, starting tomorrow.  Here are a few pictures that I took of all the goodies.

I just got home a little while ago, another late night at the shop.  Trying to get everything ready for tomorrow's big sale.  We hope to see all our friends and loyal customers at our Open House.  Happy Shopping!!!
