What a wonderful day it has been – our big sale day! Our many customers/friends showed up and it was like a reunion – old home week – a meeting of friends! We just loved this day – reconnecting with so so many of you who we haven’t seen since the store closed in 2014. Yes, you bought fabric, antiques, birdhouses, project bags, quilts, kits and baskets and greeted us like old friends!
Amy and Anita handled the check out so we could talk to you – catching up with your lives, families and of course your dogs! Remember Angel?
Quite a few years ago I attended an auction in a neighboring town and had to leave before the wheelbarrow sold. I asked my friend Joyce if she would bid on it for me – she did and to my surprise the wheelbarrow became mine! I’ve had it in my garden all these years , Rick rebuilt it and I decided to sell it. Guess who bought it? JOYCE! Haha! What goes around comes around! Isn’t that a great story?
During a lull this afternoon I cut out the start of a new quilt – red and white.
When sitting with Rick having a beer I kept hearing two distinct birds singing so I tried to get their picture. As I looked up into the trees the color was just so spectacular – dense and saturated with shades of green against that crystal blue sky.
Our thanks to Amy and Anita for being such great help, to God for such great weather and to our customers and friends who we were delighted to see again. We open at 9 tomorrow morning – hope to see you there if you are local. More pictures tomorrow night!
