National Old Stuff Day

March 2 is National Old Stuff Day. 
Who knew? I didn't, until a couple days ago.

Sounds like a good day for a sale!
Let's do 20% off all regular priced vintage items in our shop that day.
Walk-in customers only.

We are a little low on vintage items right now, but still have plenty to choose from. 
Like these windows, and the stepladders behind them.

And this pirates chest. Well - it's actually just a dome topped trunk, but little boys like to call it a pirates chest, while they dream of buried treasure.

Kitchenware. Ahh, I can almost smell the food baking! 

Isn't that Singer sewing machine a beauty? And that cabinet with it's iron base? 

Shoe stretchers. LOTS of shoe stretchers! 

There's some chippy perfection going on with that table! 
Or how about some shovels with wood handles?
Or a wooden jewelry box? 

What a fun wagon for your porch filled with flowers! Or in your yard filled with kids! 

Old metal cookie cutters. Fun, fun, fun.

A HUGE dictionary! 

Let's zoom in, shall we? 
We will go with meaning 1 or 2. 
Just ignore meaning 4.

Let's see. What else? 
Wooden boxes, crates and drawers and aluminum bowls.

Vintage quilts and quilt racks.

Plus more not pictured. You'll just have to come see for yourself!

While you're here, don't forget to stop by the Clearance Corner. The additional 20% off won't apply there, but.... everything in the Clearance Corner is already half off or more, so you're still getting a deal. 

The shop will be open from 10-5 on March 2.

Well, that's the plan anyway. This morning, (March 1) I was just ready to leave the house when a tornado warning came over the phone. 

Ok then, I can wait. No tornados that I'm aware of, but LOTS of rain, on top of the already LOTS of rain we had in the night.

Betcha can guess the result of that! Yep, lots of flooding. It doesn't affect us, we live on a hill, and the shop is in an area of town that doesn't flood.

But, this is what I saw as I came into town half an hour late:

That is a campground. Fortunately, there are only a couple campers in it right now. Unfortunately, they were still in it, the water can rise there VERY quickly. Hopefully the owners were able to get them out before the water rose any more. 

So, sometimes life happens and I get to the store late. But, the plan will be to be open from 10-5, with 20% off all regular priced vintage items. 

Thursday, March 2.
National Old Stuff Day.

What a fun holiday!!!
