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".

And, as always, please check our daughters'shops: www.etsy.com/shop/HalfSkyCovered

Spring Spring Spring! Easter Celebrations and a Coupon

photo_4 (7) Easter MantelSpring is here!   We've had a few absolutely gorgeous days and our early spring flowers like daffodils and early blooming trees like the Bradford pears are wowing us with their colors.   Overnight our grass turned green, the birds are singing and we're starting to see some summer bird residents...the brown thrasher and the barn swallow, among others.  Of course, two beautiful days are followed by rainy ones and cooler temps, but that's all a part of spring, isn't it?

Aunt Sister and I have been to one of our fav thrift spots, "the digger" several times in the past few weeks and filled up a buggy--sometimes two!   We've been on the hunt for Easter basket toys and books for a Easter dinner and egg hunt we have at Sister's the day before Easter.  This year, too, we're working on stunts for an obstacle course that we'll have kids do to "earn" their Easter basket and the digger and other fav thrift stores have provided some great props, ideas and prizes.

To celebrate "spring" and Easter, we're offering a coupon starting now through next Friday, the 11th.   Enter coupon code ThinkSpring2014 for 15% off your purchase.

Our daughter's shop, www.etsy.com/shop/HalfSkyCovered, is having a sale, with the sale items no higher than $6, as well as added new items.  Check her out!

As always, thanks for your views, questions and purchases.  Happy Spring and Happy Easter, too!

Aunt Sisters, Deb and Cindy

Happy Easter And Another Coupon!

Aunt Sister Cindy and I would like to wish each of you a HappyEaster!   We are having an Eggstravanga Easter Egg Hunt at Aunt Cindy's tomorrow with family and friends.  We hope that you, too, have the chance to be with family and friends at this time.

First, a few things to mention:  If you receive your purchase and find major flaws with the item that you did not know existed when you made the purchase, PLEASE convo us.  If this is an oversight on our part, we will try to make it right with you by offering you a refund of the item or a coupon for 20% off on your next purchase.  

We are honest, hard working gals who are trying to run an honest business selling old, vintage doo dads in good shape.  With that said, we try to put in our listings any flaws in the item--stains, a tear, nicks, scratches, etc.  But, we do "miss things".  As we also put in every listing:  "We are not experts, we are Sisters". 

Next, we DO combine shipping when possible and we WILL refund shipping overages when possible.   Again, we are trying to be fair.  

Finally, if you're receiving this blog  from us and don't want to, please scroll to the end of this blog and "unsubscribe".   Otherwise, we will share photos, ideas, finds and coupons with you through this blog about once a month.

Our next coupon starts immediately, TODAY, on books!  We are offering a buy one (set or single book), get the second set or single book of less or equal price for "half off".  Just mention this offer, SPRING BOOK SALE, at your time of purchase.   The "half off" will be refunded to your account, as soon as we print a shipping label.   We will run this coupon from today through April 15th.

Half Sky Covered has been on Spring Break and away on a trip this week, but should be posting new listings soon.  Check her out at:  www.etsy.com/shop/HalfSkyCovered

Keep on pickin'!   Aunt Sisters
