Before I get into what's been going on, I wanted to tell you what a great morning I had today. The shop was torn up and in walked Janet from Olde Crow Primitives. She was on her way to judging a horse show in Michigan and had come from Ontario, Canada. We met about a year ago and it was so great to be able to have a few minutes to set and visit. We had some of Zanie Janie's great coffee and we were able to catch up a bit. She is coming back next month and I hope we get a little more time. We did a little brainstorming and wondered if anyone would be interested in coming to Michigan for some kind of blog gathering??? We could either do something for fall or the beginning of November when all the Christmas goodies are out in the shops. Please let me know if you might have an interest.
Yup, this has been one heck of a week. THANK GOODNESS FOR CAROL!!! I don't know what I'd do without her. She has been at the shop for the last two days and we have moved furniture from one end of the shop to the other, along with adding in some great new (antique) pieces. We have packed up lots of things that are going bye-bye and unpacked lots of the new merchandise that finally arrived, including our new line of 1803 candles (and they are yummy). Today we put out lots of fall and got the shop back in some kind of order!
I think I've mentioned that Holly Hills Primitives is changing back to it's original roots. Primitives, primitives, primitives! There's still so much to do (and so little time). So many pieces of primitive antiques are arriving weekly right now that rearranging is just crazy! We are going to Columbus to the markets in a couple weeks and hope to have the van loaded to the brim.
Mark you calendars for August 27th and come on in for our Fall Open House. You won't believe the changes we are going to finish making! If you like primitives - we'll have them here for you!
Well girls, time to hit the hay and rest these weary bones, but we'll talk again soon.
Until next time...
