Where do they come up with this stuff? The first time I heard this ..years ago, I thought "Or we hae no other sale gimmick for the rest of the month after the 4th!" However for me (Gina) Christmas in July could be an excuse to show off all my Vintage Christmas ornaments. Anyone who knows me understands that I have a passion (No a PASSION!!!) for vintage Christmas goodies. And guess what? No Calories!! Anyway my Christmas ornaments and decorations are out all year round for your perusal. Just mention this blog for 25% off any regularly priced Christmas items!

We love nature as a decoratng theme, as evidenced by our summer bug and bird display. Our friend Maxine Helfman, photographer extraordinaire, puts it this way; .. " I hate bugs, but if you put them behind glass, I'll buy them." (Maxine The best part is-this stuff never goes out of style! Just ask a child! P.S.

Well, believe it or not our Garden Sale was a record breaking sucess - despite mother nature's wild rains and winds last Thursday. We lost power both at our store and at home. Oh well, when the going gets tough the tough get going!!! Our customers could not be stopped on Thursday evening even though we thought they might be coming in boats instead of cars. Friday we had a bigger turnout than ever. Take a look at the photos and remember that there is more where that came from.

"We had a couple of Winners TOO!"
Winners to be posted tomorrow

With a little help from our friends it looks as though this years Antique Garden Sale is about to begin. RAIN and/or SHINE won't be able to stop us now. We're very happy about how everything has come together and has grown since our first show over 5 years ago. It has certainly evolved from the days of " City Cafe" owner who has now gone on to bigger and better things in California. With no hesitation at all, Portia took the bull by the horns and has brought the show to a new high. "What a trooper!!" Looks like a larger back yard will SOON be in order.
As we said Rain or Shine Thursday night at 6pm we will open the gate. There are still odds and ends to do between now and then and we would seriously like to stop and help each and every one of you with purchases between now and then but we will need concentrate our time to making sure the sale goes off without a hitch. If any of you are not able to get to the show Thursday night we will be opening to the public all day Friday from 9am-4pm.
