A month sure flies - April's First Friday & Saturday Event will be this coming weekend, featuring 20% off all regular prices, Event Bucks, and a door prize. I'll detail that more later in the week.
We have another date we hope you'll keep in mind - May 28, 2011.
That will be our big clearance sale - UPSTAIRS!
"Upstairs? You don't have an upstairs." says you.
"Yes we do!" says me!
"You don't have any steps." says you.
"Yes we do!" says me!''
"Where?" says you.
"It's a secret." says me.
Wait a minute, that won't work. If they're secret, how will anyone get up there?
Ok, are you ready? I'm about to reveal the secret you all have been dying to know..........
The steps are...........drum roll please............outside.
If you are standing on the sidewalk looking at our front door, let your eyes wander just to your left. You'll see a white door with a mail slot in it. That goes up to an apartment, where the sale will be. I'll post a photo of the door sometime, I wasn't prepared right now for the big reveal.
Anyway, during the last couple of months, I've been boxing stuff up..........
Carrying it up the back stairs (also outside), and filling up several rooms.....
These pictures are just a tiny peek at what will be up there.
Crafts ~ including Christmas and Fall.
Antiques and vintage treasures.
Extra stuff we find around our house.
Much of it will be stuff that's been in inventory too long.
Good stuff... it just wore out it's welcome.
Some of it will be stuff that just never made it out on the floor.
All of it will be cheap.
As in "REALLY CHEAP".
As in "DIRT CHEAP".
As in "WE DON"T WANT TO SEE THIS STUFF AGAIN CHEAP".
Seriously, mark your calendars.
Saturday morning. 9:00 to 1:00. May 28, 2011.
It's really neat up there, with the charm of the old woodwork.....
Isn't that old built-in cupboard the coolest thing ever?
"Why don't you open the upstairs all the time?" says you.
"I would love too." says me.
But that would mean putting in steps inside. We think we have a way, but it will be a little pricey. And in this economy, pricey isn't an option we take lightly.
Apparently, "they" who say the economy is improving forgot to mention that to the folks who live in the upper Ohio Valley, because, we ain't feelin' it. Funny how "they" didn't forget to raise our gas prices though.
So, in order to open the upstairs for more than an occasional sale, we need more money.
As in more sales.
As in please shop with us, and encourage your friends to do the same.
How's that for a subtle hint?
