An unbelievable opportunity comes along!


Maya says Go for it Grandma!


I can hardly believe all that has happened in one week. We are doing something that I always said I'd never do.( run a store) Yes that's right, for those of you that know me, we are actually starting a totally new venture. Last week we had an entirely different venture in mind and I seriously prayed for the doors to either open or shut, well they clearly closed and I was a bit disappointed, hardly knowing that an entirely different situation would come along the next day. Wow what a week! We have been given an opportunity to open our own store /Tea house by a wonderful lady who is closing down her successful antique shop. We will be setting up a cottage garden in the back to host Tea parties, showers,etc. We will be filling the historical house to the brim with Antiques , home and garden decor, and various other treasures. We are also adding a coffee bistro and will cater to all customers whether it be High Tea or Mochas that they'd like. We have lots to do as the goal is to open by the middle of September.

Wow!!! I can't believe you are going to be buying Amelia's. Congratulations! I love this store sooooo much and I know I will love your store just as much. If you need help setting up let me know!

Having your own store is very exciting news! I wish I lived near-by so I could visit.

Speaking of visiting ~ my daughters and theri friends are traveling to Oregon (from Maryland) next week. I asked them to stop at the Monticello Antique Market and specifically your booth. I've really enjoyed looking at all the lovely things you have in it ~ and your windown display was beautiful too!
Anyway ~ is there an easy way for them to find your area...number, name, etc. I just thought it would be fun if my girls stopped by and visited a place in person that I love to visit online.

Thanks!

I am sooooo excited for you! Coming from one that owns her store, has two booths, and is living her dream...I am so happy for you! My teenage son said something that I will never forget last week- he told my how proud of me he was, and that he thought it was so great that I was living and working in my dream job...congrats on your new venture!!!!

There will be no other store in Eugene like yours, you have such an eye for the vintage and putting together your displays....please keep us updated on your progress, the house you'll be in is a treasure and should be so much fun........
Best of luck, if you need any help setting up let me know, I'd be so happy to lend a hand!

Will you still be at Monticello? I have dreamt of getting one of your "little cottages!" I am sure your new venture will be fantastic!

Will you still be at the Coburg antique show, or is that going to be too much?

Congrats!. I just opened a shop in Spokane. It is a ton of work but has been an amazing experience so far. I have only been open for about a week and basically got cleaned out! My hubby and I have been working like fiends - trying to get things ready for this next round...this week. Good luck. I would love to come and visit. We have family in the area. Leslie
