*~*SwEeT sUmMeRtyMe*~*

The old chalkboard hanging behind the counter lists what's coming up & going on in the shop!



Seems we're pretty much skipping spring & going straight to summer...again...seems to be a trend the last few years, thanks to the darn global warming! I must say, I am NOT a summer person...I always say in the winter you can add more layers...in the summer you can only take OFF so much! Ha! The only thing I DO like about summer is being able to have a big display all things patriotic! I LOVE americana goodes, flags, etc. & you'll find all sorts of these goodes in the shop by mid-May! I'll post here when ready!

I shot this picture of Callie (our shop cat) Saturday. She knows where to stay cool ~ sitting on top of our antique Coca-Cola box (still works! with ice cold glass bottle drinks for sale). You'll find her here on those hot days waiting to greet you!

PS! The NEW patriotic background was purely coincidence ~ I accidentally deleted my other background & can't find it, so had to stick something in there! Think I kinda like it though! :)

How neat to have that olde Coke Box....and how great for the customers to find a cold drink from an olde box...I am sure you hear lots of stories starting with "I remember"...LOL!! Although I am NOT a collector of Americana - it has become a good seller in the store since I started to do more of it - anxious to see your creations...XO, Judy

I DO hear "I remember" a LOT! LoL Most are shocked that the box still runs & then surprised with the ice cold bottle-neck style drinks inside! It's fun though & kids LOVE it!
XoXo~
