We have gotten this 100 year old rug to warm up the place.

Re-aranged the back of the shop and the middle a bit and got some wooden printer's blocks!

Happy birthday

Happy birthday Carmen! Tomorrow is Carmen's birthday and we will be closed!

Thanks for all the kind well wishes!

Pumpkin cakies!

This month's "Great Idea" is how to use up your pumpkin!

I love cooking with pumpkin this time of year- it's available in abundance, and is very nutritious!

Here is our "Pumpkin Cakie" recipe!

New stuff

We have in an antique printer's shelf full of drawers and letters! Use them for unique stamps, jewelry,  or other projects. 

We will be selling each block individually or the whole case as is for more than anyone can afford.

This piece came from a museum and the printing supplies they carried were dated late 1800s- early 1900s.

We are very excited about this!

We also will be doing up more tables, uniqur chairs, hutches, etc.

Carmen has just the most amazing ideas! Do you want to make little boxes? We carry paper with 2 by 2 inch squares. Get some paper, cut out the square and just put it on the front of any box. And hand them out to all the ghost and goblins this Halloween!

A warm way to end your snowy day.
