13 days till Christmas...

and I am just now posting photos of the shoppe.
We had our Christmas open house way back in November (November 2nd to be exact)!! We have had a very busy season...thanks to all our wonderful customers!! We have sold out of a lot of things so some of these pics look a little bare!!
We still have some great gift ideas & lots of things under $20.00 for stockings, teacher gifts, gift baskets, hostess gifts, etc, etc...
so stop in if you have a chance!!

Just got this in last night...sold a big piece that is going to Texas and was glad to find a replacement so quickly! I think I will paint the bottom part and sell the 2 pieces separately. Needs a little freshening up, but it is a great solid piece with lots of storage & a great wood top. I can see it as an island in a kitchen!!

Have a great weekend!

(Daton is going to a big auction tomorrow...hope he finds some great stuff! Wish I could go along...he gets to do the fun part of the job:)

FYI :)

Autumn Open House

Chicago or Bust!!

Definitely feeling like the Beverly Hillbilly's here!

We took a truckload of things to Brimfield in Chicago this past Saturday! I was pretty excited to see Julie's shop and I wasn't disappointed! She was incredibly nice and her shop was amazing! She has a great eye for putting things together and she is getting a lot of press! She will be featured in Country Living...not sure when...but they already did the photo shoot! It is a real blessing for us to be able to sell some of our things at her place. One of the items we are consigning is a 17 foot red 1937 Old Towne is really cool. She will be suspending it from the ceiling over a huge harvest table! Can't wait to see it and hopefully I can share a picture on this blog!! Here are a few pics I took while I was there...
