Lots of things are happening around Holly Hills Primitives. Last night we had our first class of the season. Carol Berger taught the "captured witch in the jar" and the gals seemed to have a great time. We are offering dinner with their class this year and it makes it a lot easier for the working girls! Next week is our soldered necklace class taught by Kari Wolf. I'd like to introduce you to my new "neighbor". Janie from Zanie Janie's Coffee opened her doors tonight. Tomorrow I am going to move furniture around and we are going to open the French doors between our shops so customers can shop and then go have a great cup of coffee. She is a coffee roaster, so she will be offering fresh roasted beans, ground coffee by the bag, or just a plain old good cup of coffee. I'm so lucky to have gotten such a great neighbor and I think we are going to be a good fit!
Janie behind her new counter - decorating still to come!
Janie's new roaster - what a monster!
We decorated her windows after this picture was taken. I'm going to furnish her decor and it will all be for sale! Hope you stop in to say "hi" and try her coffee.
Saturday is the Holly antique show. The main street will be blocked for antique vendors, there will be a bluegrass band, the farmer's market will be going strong, and, of course, we will have more antiques added by this weekend. Can't wait to see what pops up around town.
Next Wednesday is the last car cruise for the year. It is the Halloween Super Cruise and the sponsors are encouraging costumes and candy. I'm going to give a 15% discount on all Halloween if customers come in their costumes.
On Friday night (Oct. 9), the town is having a Witch's Nite Out - at least some of the shops - so I'm busy planning what we can do! If my customers show up in something "witchy", I will give 30% off all Halloween and fall decor. My Ashley is going to help bake some goodies and I'm trying to get our Terri to play music in the shop.
So, life is busy in Holly this week and next. Hope we see you in town soon.
Until next time...
