Over the river and through the woods...

Amy and I have been on the road alot lately - sorry I haven't posted any new pictures -
but I'm here to change that!
These pictures are from our Christmas Booth at Monticello's in Portland. Sooooooo much Christmas!
We are enjoying our jaunts to Portland, but I will admit, it's this time of year
I miss the store and all our wonderful customers!
In addition to Monticello's - Amy and I have recently moved into a space
at M & M Antiques in Monroe.  If you haven't already been - you need
to make a trip - it's such a wonderful mall.
Mel and all the dealers up there are a ton of fun and have
been so welcoming!
And for those of you who shopped at our store and remember all the
gals who used to work for us - I've included a picture of
our sweet Amanda and her brand new baby boy - Tyler!
I do love me a baby!!!

Farms, Frills & Fun - Oh My!

So Monticello's Fall Premiere Show opened Friday!
Check out all
their fabulous pictures Monticello Antique Marketplace.

After setting up for Monticello's on Wednesday - I came back
Amy ended up missing the fun
because of a bad back.  So I roped my poor husband, Rick, into
being my right-hand-man!  THANKS Honey!

Mark your calendars for next Saturday, the 15th of September!
Buckley is hosting their annual Flashback Car Show.
We thought it would be fun to join in -
so Amy and I will be bringing our vintage trailers!
We've invited a few friends to bring theirs too.
So take a trip back in time and see all the old cars,
enjoy the Wine & Beer Walk
and check out our little troop of Trailers!

September is HERE!

Hard to believe it is September already!  We've been laying low this last month - we told ourselves that August was our "off" month - since the rest of summer was crazy.  But's September and here we go again!
 This Wednesday we are setting up for Monticello's Fall Premiere Show - 
and we can't wait!

The store is full!  The minute a piece sells we're brining in 
something new - or rather something old - so if you've
been to see us you'll want to come check us out again soon!

Here's some eye candy from the show!

Monticello's, Fieldfest & Barn House - OH MY!

It continues to be a BUSY time for Amy and I.  Our fabulous little shop has yet to get our undivided attention because of all the other commitments we had already made for the summer -
before we came out of semi-retirement - HA!

We made it into Monticello's in Portland last week to give our booth a much-needed facelift.

Then this last weekend we had FIELDFEST - our annual garage sale in Amy's field.
Which is basically a three day party with vintage trailers, food and fun!

And NOW we are less then two weeks away from the
Barn House Show in Battleground!! But I have no worries -
we work BEST under pressure!

But all the while FARM & Frills is OPEN
and filled with great stuff.
Remember our store hours
Wednesday - Saturday 10 - 5
Sundays 11 - 4

Not just antiques anymore...We are so excited to be adding gift and accessories to FARM & Frills.
These awesome pieces of jewelry are being made by some
local women - and we are thrilled to offer you their one-of-a-kind pieces.

We are working hard to find things that we feel our customers will love and items that will fit in the store with ease.  So be sure to stop by and see what's new - because literally every day there is something new!

More Party Pictures!

Amy and I have uploaded some more pictures from our fancy phones!!  
I feel so torn - between all these techie gadgets
and our antique cash register on the counter.... 
But I guess it's like having my stainless steel appliances in the same kitchen
as my late 1800's cupboard - the best of both worlds!
Thank goodness for our helpers for the night -
my daughter Libby is in the pink hair -
with her best friend, Courtney.

Here Amy and I are surrounded by some of the most
amazingly talented women in the northwest!
Serena Thompson, (creator of the Farm Chicks phenomenon); me (Kris Strom Williamson),
Tiffany Kirchner-Dixon, (The Fancy Farmgirl), Deb Bock,
(the first to open her business - Keepsakes - in our little gas station, 15 years ago),
Amy McCoy and Timi Weathers-Bottorff,
(creator of Ruffles & Rust).

Super Surprise Guest - Cleste Shaw - owner of the
fabulous Chaps Restaurant in Spokane!

Jeanine Corey and Catt Kimball.

This picture is missing Deb - but Timi's got a great big
smile for the camera this time!

We continue to get excited each time one of you - our wonderful customers -
come walking through the door of the new store!
It's so great to see old friends!  If you haven't made it yet, stop by soon!
