Happy Independence Day to all of our friends!!!

We are open on July 4, 5, and 6 and having a Good, Bad and Ugly Sale! For those of you who haven't attended one of these, please bring your out of towners and come! Bargains galore.....even $1.00 boxes of good merchandise we just don't want anymore. We have so much fun with this event so please join us!

On July 4, we will be open from 12 - 5.

Hooray for our Red, White and Blue! I am so sentimental when it comes to our great country.......I still cry at singing America the Beautiful and the Star Spangled Banner. We are so grateful for what we have....take a minute to cherish this.

A HUGE thank you to our wonderful customers for coming and buying at our fun, summertime beach party. We had a blast and gave away 150 travel totes. Because of you, we were able to give $150 to our charity of choice - WORD - an organization that is constantly working to alert women about ovarian cancer and its symptoms. We chose this in honor of our friend, Jane Younce. We miss her smile everyday.

See you on the 4th!

We are all looking forward to our Beach Party on June 13, 14 & 15. Come party with us as we offer you so many discounts and wonderful items. Many items will be 40% off! We are trying to make room for some special new purchases. We hope to see you then as we expect to have fun, laughs and ice cream! Let us entertain you !

Some of our most noted items, recently arrived:

*Hearts. We love hearts and these are especially country - simple and cute. Many wonderful sayings.

*Typewriter key jewelry. We love these pieces available in necklaces, bracelets and bookmarks. Special orders can be taken and we are selling these like hotcakes. These are made especially for us by a great gal in Lafayette, IN.

*Garden and Bird items. Our customers just cannot get enough of these! Add a bird or two to all of your displays at home. Very homey and feel goody.

*Bless the United States of America with our wonderful vintage look flags, and all accessories that you need to show your colors. We have put together an exciting red, white and blue window complete with fountain and potting bench. Pretend you are looking at a porch and we have all those extra special furnishings - just for you!

* girls think I am crazy but I just decorated another shop window with metallic silver accent pieces and painted a vintage desk and chair metallic silver. What was I thinking? I don't know - but it is attracting lots of attention and I love the change it has made to the front of the shop temporarily. I can think this piece would make a great entryway statement, loaded with all the items you already own. Books, old eyeglasses, journals. You must see this!
