A New week...a new post! (Updated Saturday evening!)
Evening to all!
I'm so glad to be home again...but whoa, do I have a ton of work to do! I'll be updating the blog all week as things come in or get done...here's the first thing I need to tell yall about...
Two new books will be arriving soon! I'll post pictures of the projects in each of these books as soon as they arrive...
(Arrived on Thursday!)
First is a new book by JoAnn Mullaly called "Crazy at Home". 15 projects in this book...$24.95 (wow price $22.45). I haven't ordered a ton of these...so if you are wanting one...let me know and I'll put your name on one when they arrive.
Also soon to arrive...Blackbird Designs newest book..."Garden Club"! $24.95 for the book (wow discount applies!)...Arrived Tuesday, Nov. 23rd..only two copies left!!
(Arrived on Saturday...will be in the shop Sunday, Nov. 21st!)
Oops...and almost forgot...Judy Condon's new book, "The Country Life" is shipping this week and we hope to have it here by the weekend. I have several names on a list so far so extra copies are limited. Let me know if you want one! $24.95 for the book (wow discount applies!)...
Today was the first chance I've had since being home to really get into the shop and move stuff around a bit so I can find everything! Here's a few pics that I took as I was working stuff around...sorry for the picture quality...the flash makes everything too bright and there's not quite enough light to make the shutter click fast enough not to make it a little blurry. Maybe Santa needs to bring me a new camera...hmmmmm....
This is one of my christmas "spots" in the shop...notice Santa and Elmer sitting in the red rocker...one of Vicki Wallace's dolls...he is just really great!
This is another one of Vicki's creations...great prim angel on a great old (big) textile bobbin...she's one you can just leave out all year...tuck her in an old hutch amongst your crocks and jugs...she'd be right at home!
Just a few odd shots of the shop...
Len Greco came in last weekend and brought us several of his incredible birdhouses! This is a picture of one of them up close...the workmanship is amazing..and these are definitely made to go outside for the birds to enjoy! Come in and see all of his designs!
This is a new piece...fresh to the market! Circa 1780-1800 North Carolina corner cupboard. The piece is originally from Albermarle, NC (near Charlotte). Exceptionally rare and all original open top cupboard constructed entirely of heart pine. All hand forged hardware and rose head nails...it is an excellent size, measuring only 38" from side to side. An easy fit to just about any corner! It will stay in the shop til the end of the year...if it doesn't sell...it's going home with us! $2,395.00. SOLD
We've now got about 100 bolts of fabric in the shop...lots of civil war prints, some really great old Thimbleberries, nice blenders and historical prints...just good stuff! Regular price per yard is $9.00... our price is $7.95 per yard (wow girls get 10% off!). Through Thanksgiving weekend I'll be offering these fabrics to our regular customers for $6.95...don't forget to mention this if you come in!
Other goodies new this weekend...
* 20 count brown cord silicone lights...$9.95 per strand
* Little star silicone pop-ons...these pop onto your regular miniature lights...$.95 cents each
* 24" german twig trees...$14.95
* Lots of new punchneedle patterns!
* New Christmas wool applique patterns
* New wool pillows (just take them home and enjoy...you don't have to make it!)
I'll be working on kits all this next week...I'll let yall know what all gets finished for next weekend!
Oh, and speaking of next weekend...don't forget, we will be open the Friday after Thanksgiving...and with bunches of new stuff coming in for that weekend to boot!
I think that about does it for tonight's update! It is going to be beautiful this weekend and the vendors were in full force setting up outside today...can't wait to go digging out there at bit!
There are two good shows going on out at the fairgrounds as well...The Women's Club Antique Show is going on over in the Scott building...and for the guys, there's the Dixie Gun and Knife Show...a little something for everyone!
Yall take care and have a great weekend!
