Cousins Day...Getting ready for a hike in the woods!

Happy spring to all!  Aunt Sister Cindy and I are getting ready for the first annual Garden and Goods Spring Market in Castalian Springs, TN    We'll be there with a booth stuffed with goodies: suitcases, books, toys, aprons, Pyrex, games, furniture and more!   The Market starts Friday, May 8th at 12 noon to 8 p.m.  and goes through Saturday May 9th 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.   It will be held on the grounds of the Tennessee State Historic Site of Cragfont in Castalian Springs.  There is a daily admission of $3 and after you stroll and peruse the market, the home will be open for tours.

We hope you will come by and see our booth if you're in the middle Tennessee area!   Just look for the booth with more funky junk than you can imagine stuffed in one booth!

And, for those who can't make it, we are offering a coupon, effective immediately, so that you can be a part of the "party" too!  Just enter GetThePartyGoing2015 for 20% off your purchase.  This coupon will be in effect until midnight of May 7th.

The Vernal Equinox and a new coupon EQUINOX2015 for 20% off

It's nearly time for the vernal equinox, SPRING, new life, bright green leaves, colorful flowers! Families and friends will gather for Easter celebrations. The sun will shine and warmer weather will return. Sounds great, huh?

Aunt Sister and I are planning the annual Easter dinner and egg hunt we have the day before Easter with eggs filled with candy and games galore and lots of good food. We started early looking for plastic eggs to fill, games to play, and fun prizes for all the kids. We look forward to all the usual kids who come to the party, plus some newcomers...our grandbabies born last October!

Our next adventure will be to prepare ourselves and our picks for a booth at the first annual Garden and Goods Spring Market to be held on the grounds of the Cragfont State Historic Home, Castalian Springs, TN from Thursday May 7th through Saturday May 9th. The first night is a "sneak peak" with limited attendance but the next two days will be open to all: Friday 12-8 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. There is a $3 admission each day. If you're in the area, we hope you'll come to the "market" and please, look us up! We'd love to meet you!

To help you celebrate the vernal equinox, spring, Easter and new life, we offer a coupon of 20% off, effective now through March 26th. Just enter EQUINOX2015 at checkout to receive your discount. Thanks as always to our loyal customers and new friends. We love your reviews! We have received several lately that reaffirm our belief: "It's not about the stuff, it's about the feeling". These reviews warm our hearts and give even more enjoyment to our "picking".

Happy New Year, Let it Snow and How about a coupon to brighten these gray winter days?

Happy New Year! It's been cold and gray in middle Tennessee. Our snow is measured in dustings and tenths, but it has been dreary. Aunt Sister and I try to stay busy with new listings and weekly trips to our latest fav thrifting spot: "the digger". It seems we keep breaking our record each time we go, spending longer digging through the bins and piling our cart higher with treasures. We try not to leave now till we get 50 pounds or more so that our price per pound,"drops" to the lowest, best price available at the digger.

I think that looks like about 50 pounds worth!

Our purchases are all over the place from Christmas to Easter to Halloween decorations, books, suitcases and other bags, board and card games, wall art, chalkboards, crutches, dog and kid toys, baby items, stitchery kits, even pool cue chalk. We never know what we'll find and well, that's a good part of the fun! Aunt Sister feels satisfied that we've taken full advantage of a bin when we dig to the bottom of the bin and that's often where we find the best treasures!
