I apologize that it's been so long between posts...lots going on...plus we took advantage of the shop being closed and took a small break!
If you're having withdrawels from the fairgrounds being closed, try coming out to Gresham Lake's Antique Flea Market this weekend...Saturday and Sunday...9am - 5pm each day! The Antique Mall there is having a flea market in the long parking lot out front! It's their first time doing it, but it sounds like it is going to be full of vendors! We'll be there set up with a booth on Saturday for sure! (Don't worry about coming early...they won't even let us set up until 8am!) (The address for the Antique Market is 6917 Capital Blvd, Raleigh.)
Over to the right I've put up a picture of "Linda"....the Fall Maiden wool project by Liberty Rose....I just got it cut out and placed the other night but wanted to show this so you know exactly what the kits are like! If you want one, just let me know!
There's some new books/magazines soon arriving!
Jill Peterson has a new book that will be ready in 2-3 weeks...called "Homecoming".
As with her other two books, this is a hardcover book, containing 153 pages with over 300 color photographs featuring 11 homes. $36.00 per book. (WOW discount applies, of course!) Here's a sneak peek of a couple of the photos...
I'm trying to make sure we order plenty...so if you are wanting to get your name on our "want" list for this book..please let me know! We'll also have this over on our website for sale (for you long distance buyers) with free shipping!
Also, the Winter issue of her magazine, "A Simple Life" will be here in two weeks as well! ($8.95 per issue) (WOW discounts apply!)
Judy Condon's newest book, Simple Greens, has been flying out of the shop. We still have a copy or two left if you need one! $24.95 (This one is all holiday decorating related!)
(Her next book, The Country Life, will be out mid-late November!)
A Primitive Place's holiday issue of their magazine is due out here in a couple of weeks! (I can't wait to get my hands on that!) This is another one that if you want to make sure you get a copy, please tell me so we can get your name on the list!
And finally....there is a new magazine coming out in 2011 that we will be carrying called "Primitive Quilts and Projects"...
I think this promises to be a really great magazine for all the primitive quilters and crafters out there! The magazine will come out 4 times a year...$9.95 per issue. (WOW members, don't forget your discount!)
Had a new bolt of fabric show up today...from Blue Hill's line call "Abigale". I must have a "thing" here lately for olive green and red..and this fits that bill great! Nice small civil war print in olive, tomato red and cream! Regular retail is $9.00 per yard...our price is $7.95 (WOW girls...discount!). First thing I thought of was...ooohhh...covered boxes and christmas journals! (It's over on the website as well for purchase.)
That's it for right now...more coming later this week as we get ready for the weekend! Enjoy the day...
