Merry Christmas from a Corner Cottage!!

Merry Christmas from a Corner Cottage!! We are blessed to have so many friends visit us this season. Plus we've seen so many new faces, we are sure to become fast friends, too.

For your shopping pleasure, our hours through Christmas are: Mon., Tues., Wed., Thur., and Sat. 10 am - 5 pm: Fri. 10 am - 8:30 pm; Sun. 1 pm - 5 pm. We will be closing at 3:00 pm on Christmas Eve, and of course, closed on Christmas Day. We will reopen for wonderous sales on Dec. 26th at 9:00 am and stay open until 8:00pm.

As I look around the shop, I fall in love all over again with many of our items. I will help you take a peek:

**** As you enter the shop, be prepared to have your breath taken away...we have greeted you with a nature tree in shades of brown, orange, gold and red. It makes an impact and you can begin a new tradition in your homes also.

**** Frosty the Snowman has made an appearance again this year in everything from mugs to ornaments - don't worry, he'll be back again someday! We still carry many classic and country Santas...these are almost gone they were so popular.

**** Our bling bling is to die for. We have sparkly, we have classy, we have Christmas jewelry, and loads of inexpensive watches. Many of these items would be great for teachers, bus drivers, etc. We offer crystal pins and ornaments that have wonderful sayings such as "Diva", "Queen", "Blessings", Fabulous", and so many more.

**** We have new quilted purses in the greatest of colors, and classy leather handbags with accessories. We carry manicure sets, glitzy contact lens cases, measuring tapes in cool colors, sparkley key rings, and lots of initial items. I personally love the multi-colored luggage tags with the monogram on them.
**** Want to make a statement with your party table? Our wonderfully colored Signature pottery can help you do that. Then we have hurricanes, linens, and napkin rings to complete the look. Add our miscellaneous pieces of other pottery to these everyday plates and you will be amazed at the different looks you can create. All fairly priced and ready to help our hostesses shine.

**** Simple Country has never gone away and we are so glad. Not only do these Christmas and everyday items bring back the memories, but they are such a delight to give away.

**** New tin signs with the most inspriational sayings on them - $25 and $29. How can you beat that?

**** Christmas rugs that are wash and use. We use some of these in the shop and they look as good as new after numerous washings. We have these in everyday patterns, too.
**** We have a large selection of nativities and angels this year. When I dust this area, I stop and think about the real reason for this season with a smile on my face. Thank You, Jesus! We have a white tree with gold, bronze, and silver ornaments and angels on it. It is breathtaking if we do say so ourselves. We have all sizes and prices of these items.

**** If we promise there are no calories, will you try some of our gourmet food products? These are tremendous sellers for us and we sample items all the time. Brownies and cakes, dilly dips and pepper mixes, chocolates and chocolates (did I mention chocolate?), soups and breads. No calories, we assure you! Try some of our samples, you will be the light of many parties.

**** Baby items are here! We even have stuffed animals reduced to unbelievable prices! If you don't giggle when you see some these items, you must be a scrooge! We have 2 new grandmothers in our store who have wisely bought some great things for their first grandchildren and for yours.

**** Once again we are back with our vintage village houses which remind me of my childhood. We continue to sell these as others have memories, too. We love the colors of aged pink, blue, and gold. Many of these have silver accents, too, and silver has become BIG this year. We have many tarnished silver pieces. My Mother would say, "why would anyone want tarnished silver, they should clean it first!" however, look in any catalog and that is what is most wanted and displayed. This is so elegant, you must try several pieces.

**** Our dealers have out done themselves in finding wonderful Christmas pieces and furniture to decorate your home. Their booths are full of fun stuff and classic vintage pieces. You must see the prices on these items. They are such an asset to our little shop, and we so appreciate their efforts to find affordable items for your homes.

**** Start a tradition in your house of finding the Christmas pickle buried in your own tree. We have these pickles, along with a printed legend, for your gift giving. My own kids have fun doing this every year.

****We have the greatest, fun stocking stuffers! Many items you have never seen - itty bitty socks that you wet, let dry and they expand into full size soft socks: reindeer noses that light up; glass nail files; penguin whistles; lip glosses; writing pens that look like a tube of lipstick; kooky pens; soap in the shape of an ice cream cone; kid's jewelry. You must come to see these, your kids will love them!

Looking ahead: Noblesville Main Street puts on a First Friday event each month and this month it is December 7th. We will be open until 8:30 pm and you will find carriage rides, chestnuts roasting on an open fire, cocoa being served and many specials in all the stores. Our town is so festive, you must visit all the merchants to see what we offer.

Peggy is planning some new decorating classes during the winter months. When she last taught, the classes were a huge success, but because of lack of space and her time, we kind of neglected this idea. Peggy's head is always full of new ideas, so watch for a postcard with details.

Happy Holidays, Everyone! Visit us often for a food sample, warm cider and lots of fun and bargains.

Oh my goodness! What a birthday party we had!! Thanks to the many many friends who came to the shop for bargains and to celebrate our 5th birthday party. This undoubtedly was our best party yet, and we cleared the shelves to get ready for our next season.

Many, many heartfelt thanks to those of you who have supported our little shop for 5 years and for our new found friends. We have strived for perfection in customer service. All efforts are always made to keep our prices reasonable. And we always look forward to hearing your input. You are all an inspiration to us and we hope you have fond thoughts of us as our items enter your homes. Friends...that's what you all have become and we are forever grateful for your friendships. That's what this shop wanted from the first day it opened and we feel we have finally done it! All of you are our inspiration - every day.

You should see what we have arriving in the store on a daily basis! It is so fun to open the boxes and think of which friend we know who will come in and go 'crazy' for a certain item. Attending the gift shows is the most tiring job we have, but it is worth so much to see the look of delight on your faces as you realize a picture or shelf will look just right on a wall in your own home. We bought lots of home decor, bling bling, some new gourmet items, cuter baby stuff, and lots of fall and Christmas! Oh, are we out to impress you this year!!!

Our hearts go out to all our friends who are experiencing health problems at this time. You know we keep you in our thoughts and prayers and check on you all the time, but we want you to know we are always here for you. Prayers do get answered!! We know this firsthand!!

Please stay tuned for pictures of new items and updates on the shop.

Thanks for making A Corner Cottage become the best it can be!
