Aunt Sisters' Picks

11Jun/14

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.

Showers and Graduations, Weddings and Vacations

Botany Bay in South Carolina

In the past two months, Aunt Sister and I have been on a wild ride and it's been a lot of fun.   Her son got married and we gave her daughter to be a bridal shower and a bachelorette party and a bridal luncheon.   Then my youngest daughter graduated from college and we attended that ceremony and gave her a party.   Next was the wedding and reception of Aunt Sister Cindy's son.      And then a week after the wedding, Aunt Sister and I went on a little vacation to the beach, for a lot of fun, some beach hiking and shell collecting, wave riding, bicycling and a couple of BINGO nights.   YeeHaw!

We're BACK though and ready to get back into it.   I've started a mini list fest of our latest linen finds--lots of cute children's sheets and some other great floral patterns.   Check out the Unicorn pillowcases!   I'll be listing some suitcases in the next few days too. 

When we parted the other night after driving home from the beach, Aunt Sister was already talking about and planning a thrifting day.     Give her a few days and I'm sure she'll be listing one of her nifty picks.

We hope each of you is enjoying the summer and have fun days to look forward to with your family.    If you haven't looked at our shop lately, check us out and then, check out our daughters' shops at:

We’re BACK……

Well, the Aunt Sisters have spent the past two weeks playing...and now we're back at it and ready to enter new listings and find new goodies, take up new projects, find some new yard sales.

We do appreciate the patience of those who bought from us while we were away and your sweet whatchamacallits will soon be in the mail and on their way to you.  And for those with questions who sent us "convos" we will soon have all of those answered as well.

Look soon, too, for new listings....we're always a little behind on finding the good thingamabobs and then getting them "out there" for all to see.  Of course, we love to sell, but we seem to have the most fun looking, shopping and buying!

Finally, check out the "Jr Aunt Sisters" sites--they have some awesome finds too!
