WoWwiE!!! What a Weekend We Had!

I am so sorry it has taken me so long to get back to the blog. I

truly was hoping to post some pictures before the event...but as usual...time didn't allow for that! We were busy with preparations right up until we opened!
We were totally amazed at the turn out and the response to this years Open House! In spite of the rain there was a line of devoted fans waiting to get in! I have to thank you from the bottom of my heart for that! What a way to ring in our 18th Annual Open House!!
We hope you all had just as much fun as we did!! Again, I couldn't have pulled it off without all the elves -- I am truly blessed...they are so devoted. Thanks for such a wonderful weekend!!
Stacy (and the elves)

Just what have we been up to??

Whew!!! Times are CRAZY around here! I am so lucky for all the

devoted gals that work tirelessly to pull this event (and every event) together. I would never be able to pull off this ‘shop thing’ I do, without each and every one of them! I actually remembered to take a few pics before utter chaos broke loose…wait until you see all of our holiday goodies!

There is literally a path through this place at the moment…but we are confident we will have it all together! HA! And yes, somehow it does always come together! If I have the opportunity I will try and post another pic of one of our displays…just a sliver of the wonderfulness you will experience this holiday season with us!
You’ll be able to experience it beginning at 5:00 p.m. Friday night, October 24th! Come and toast the upcoming season with us! We’ll be serving wine and extra goodies on Friday night. Hope to see you there! Oh, and don’t forget…we’ll be giving away a Trollbeads Bracelet, Clasp & Murano Glass Bead as our door prize this year! WOO HOO!

Hope to see you there! Stacy

Attention Pretzel Lovers!

We've got Pumpkin Pretzels! Yes, you heard me right...and are

they yummy! For those of you who bought and loved the Summer Pretzels…AND for those of you disappointed when we were sold out of them for the season…this is your chance!

These pretzels are addicting…kind of like that potato chip…you can’t eat just one! They have a pumpkin spice flavored white chocolate coating on them…and they are wonderful!!

Tom Smith...What A Good Sport!

A group of us were sitting around during the Summer Gathering ...someone mentioned the Blow Up Jumpy thing that Rent Rite had inflated...someone made a funny remark about who was going to be first to go mind you...there weren't ANY children in the vicinity!

So I throw out...the first person to go inside will get a $10.00 Gift Certificate. Well, Tom Smith of "Real Men Come Inside" fame, nonchalantly said, "I'll do it." WHAT A GREAT SPORT!!!

Look closely at the first picture, I had trouble getting a good one...but he's in there jumping around! And, that's him in the picture on the right, after his bouncing adventure. Between you and me, I am dying to know if he was sore the next day! I know I would be...I am SURE that would have pulled some muscles and jammed some body parts that aren't used to that kind of abuse...I mean activity ...HA!
But he's a good sport, and yes, his lovely wife, Kathy gladly spent the gift certificate!
For those of you wondering...yes, this is the SAME Tom Smith that is quoted on the sign outside the store, "Real Men Come Inside." :)

Our Summer Gathering

I have to apologize...I have been so busy trying to catch up since the event...and then I had a Surprise Retirement Party for my hubby this past I have neglected things here. But it's now time to get back to business!

Back to the Summer Gathering..we had a blast! Unfortunately, I didn't get many pictures once things got underway, but I'll be changing the slide show in the left sidebar..there are some great pictures of our decorations and the few pics, like 2 or 3, I took once things got off the ground.

The weather held off for us...and actually got quite nice! We gave away lots of goodies and gift certificates! Like the Lt. Moses Rooster Lamp to Deb & Dan Majchrzak, who sunk a hole in one at the Putting Game! That's the lovely couple in the picture!

And, in spite of having to have the power turned off TWICE! What are the chances of that!! A transformer just up the road blew and they had to fix it...but the Consumers Energy guys were so sweet and worked quickly so it wouldn't be off long each just added some fun to our event....hehehe.
I have to say, we could never have pulled off this event without our neighbors, Rent Rite! They allowed us to use ANYTHING they had for rent for this party! Now how great a company is that! For anyone who hasn't been inside their would be amazed at all the party gear they have to rent! Check them out next time you come to the store...they are a great group of people!
Look for my next post...about a very loving husband...and the lengths he won't go to for his sweet wife...and no, I'm not talking about my own husband. :)

The Event WILL Go On ~ Rain OR Shine!!!

The weatherman is throwing us a curve...he's saying it might rain on WHEN have you ever heard it rains on the FIRST DAY OF SUMMER! ;) (For those of you that are scratching your heads saying, "May 30th is not the first day of Summer?" go down a couple of posts and you'll understand what I'm talking about.)

Well, I am taking a break from the preparations just long enough to let you know...the weatherman has a 50/50 chance of getting it right...and you all know what I talking about there...this IS Michigan you know!

While I have put my order in for a SUNNY & WARM day, we're just letting you know we are prepared for anything, just in case the he gets it right! ;)

A little rain can't get us down...because we have dusted off our party shoes and there's no stopping us now!

We'll see you Friday night! You're going to LOVE what we have planned for you! :)
Stacy, Joe & the crew

How About A Ginormous Yard Sale!?

Who out there doesn't have home decor items they need to get rid of?

For years so many people would comment that they wished I had a consignment area for them to get rid of things they didn't want anymore. So that started me about having a Ginormous Yard Sale? We have the yard, on a busy street...and people flock to group yard sales! We'll do some advertising...and the people will come!

We are taking names of people interested in taking part in this event...we are thinking it will be the end of July...if you think you might be interested in taking part, call the store (989-793-2583) and leave your name...we are just gauging interest at this point.

Here's the deal...we don't want anything but home decor appliances, no clothes, no tools...JUST HOME DECOR. You will be responsible for your own space, we are just offering the venue to sell your wares.

This could be a great place to find something you might need for your own home, help furnish your child's apartment at college, even something for those just starting out! The possibilities are endless! So if you think you might be interested...give us a call!

Have a wonderful day!

Monday, May 5, 2008

Wonderful watches and purses from TOKYObay. And don't forget...a gift certificate, for those hard to buy for mom's...who doesn't love a gift certificate!

I just had to take a picture of these wonderful yellow tulips that are looking so sunny and beautiful in my front flowerbed at home...tulips just don't last long enough for me! I hope you have a wonderful week...and an especially lovely Mother's Day on Sunday! I'll be enjoying the day with my Mom! :)

Well...Vacation is Over...

Hey All!

I'm back...we had a wonderful time in Florida and the girls held down the fort wonderfully while I was away!! I've only downloaded a few pics from the trip so I'll post a few of those until I get the rest downloaded from my camera. Though, you won't find any of me on the beach...I wonder why? hehehe

The darling girl is my niece/goddaughter, Karli in her Easter dress. Mom and I got to spend a few days alone with her before THE PARENTS came and spoiled everything. She turned 3 in January and we love her to pieces-- and don't get to see her nearly enough!
I also posted a pic of her with her little brother, Jeff ( I say that tongue in cheek as he's 6'3") and his wife Karen, they live outside of Atlanta and are our halfway stop on our way down to Bonita Springs...I have to be nice to them because they give me free room and board when I head down to the Atlanta Market. Gotta love that!! We all had a great time...but it's never long enough.
I hope you all got the chance to escape the harsh winter we had this year...WOWWIE! It was a doosey!! But I think we can say it's over? Maybe I'll just whisper that last never know...we ARE in Michigan!
Toodles, Stacy

Great Stuff To Tell You About!

Hi All!

I have to share some pics of a couple of items that came in recently! You know the magazines are ALL ABOUT COLOR these days!!! Check out this first pic...wonderfully colorful Colanders!! I don't think I will hide mine away in the just might take on the roll of fruit bowl on my counter top when not being used as intended! No question here...mine will be LIME!!!
And look how great they look with the Sabre Dishes!!!

Next I have to show you these new Diaper Bags!!! I hate to even say they are a diaper bag because I want to carry one as a purse, or carry necessaries when I travel overnight. My dilemma though...lime polka dots or stripes!!! What do you think!!
I think these are going to be hot...whether you are a hip & happenin' mom toting around your bundle of joy and all their necessity's OR a hip and happenin' gal like...oh I don't know...ME!!!! And who knew being a mom could LOOK SO COOL...right here in Saginaw!!! Get Out!!!
Have a great evening!
