Aunt Sisters' Picks

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

It’s a…BOY and a…GIRL….Beach Time and more

In the past week we have learned the sex of our grandbabies due in October..Aunt Sister Cindy's son and daughter in law are having a boy and Aunt Sister Deb's son and daughter in law are having a girl!   Both are due in October.  Add to that our participation in the Handmade Harvest Festival in Bethpage, TN and it's going to be a busy month!

In addition, Aunt Sister and I have been taking an Etsy seller seminar and have learned and put into effect a few new things in our shop and in our social media connections.    Now, besides our accounts on instagram: auntsisterspicks, and Twitter:  AuntSisterCindy and AuntSisterDeb, we also have an account on pinterest:  AuntSistersPick (we had to leave off the s as it was too many characters).   We have also rewritten our story and about sections and these "new" additions will soon appear in our shop.

We always invite you to look at our daughter's shop:  www.etsy.com/shop/HalfSkyCovered

We would now like to invite you to look at another daughter's shop, just opened this week, at:  www.etsy.com/shop/QueSuertePY

Finally, Aunt Sister Cindy is taking the next two weeks off at the beach in South Carolina for much needed R & R.   What that means to you is that Aunt Sister Deb will be holding down the fort and continuing to ship linens, BUT other items will NOT be shipped until Monday June 30th.  We thank you in advance for your patience.

Happy thrifting!

Suddenly we seem to be chair people.  Everywhere we go chairs keep calling our name.
