Springtime in the mountains

We are getting lots of new spring stuff in the next week or so. Stop by and see things for outside like a wonderful shabby table with a galvanized metal top and just about the coolest bird feeder you've ever seen. Cool buckets and watering cans and pottery jugs and critters and just so much I can't list it all.

Talk about a small town. Mr. Meadows, my at least 90 year old neighbor drives down the street a couple of times each week. He drives an enormous old brown Buick something. He blows the horn all the way down the street. It's one of those really loud ones that sound like it came off the Queen Mary. Anyway, one day I was outside talking to Rodney (he's our auto mechanic next door) when Mr. Meadows drove by blowing his horn. We both waved at him and I asked Rodney if he knew why Mr. Meadow always blew his horn when he went down Main St. Rodney said, "well , one day he came in for service on his car and I told him he had a really loud, obnoxious horn. So now every time he he drives by he blows his horn just to irritate me". I just love our small town. Stop by for a cup of tea when you can. Diane & Karen

Happy Anniversary!

We are celebrating our 3rd year anniversary in this building! Thank you to all our wonderful customers who have been so supportive of us. We have been ordering all kinds of new stuff so you will be seeing many interesting additions to our usual inventory. We love to find the UN -usual and unique while keeping our prices as low as we can. Come see us when you can for a cup of tea and a chat.

We found some wonderful treasures at an estate sale this week. We have rearranged the shop for all the new stuff. Stop by and see what's here. Also, all our linens are on sale for 25% off.

Observations from 55 N. Main

I love going for a walk in our small town. You know you live in a small town when you are just out for a walk and 47 people stop and ask you if you need a ride. Basketball goals face the street. Cars drive past you and the driver throws up his hand to say hello. People speak to you as you go by them. Directions are based on who you mutually know. ex: "Can you tell me where Susan Smith lives? Do you know where Mrs. Brown lives? Well, turn right just past her house..." You can stop and talk to someone who is working in their yard and they'll tell you all about their garden and will probably break off a piece of something you've admired for your own garden.
Stop by sometime for a cup of tea. Diane & Karen

Valentine Hearts!

We have the most beautiful mercury glass hearts that have come in just in time for Valentine's Day! Haven't seen anything like them around. Come in and check them out!

Observations From 55 N. Main St.

It's story day today at the library. The kindergartners from the Primary School are walking up to the library for storytelling. Miss Jill is our local storyteller and one of the best around. It never gets old for her. Storytelling has a rich heritage in these mountains. Apparently the topic this time was "socks". I'll have to call her and find out the rest of the story.
The kids love to go on these mini field trips.
Stop by for a cup of tea when you can. Diane & Karen
