Shop Till Ya Drop

Marci & Pam have gone to Market in Atlanta so what better time than now to have a SALE! Yep that is right we are having a HUGE SALE this Friday & Sat (1/13-1/14)! EVERYTHING in the cottage & Showroom is 30% off y'all! We will even have a 50% off section in the kitchen! Now ya just can not beat that! We have not had a sale like this since back at the beginning of summer last year! We are open from 10 am-5:30 pm both days.

Sale excludes Spoiled Sweet Couture items as well as Finch & Co. Designs. Sorry but Pamela just does not have enough inventory to support a sale this huge!

Also on Sat Jennifer of Metamorphosis is having her first Open Shop Day where you can come on in her workshop and look at all of her fabulous fabrics, tools, and current projects! So be sure to come on out and chat with Jennifer over coffee about ideas and inspirations!

2012 - New Beginnings at the Cottage

I really don't know where to begin with this message.  First, the bad news I guess - my husband has accepted a job in Idaho and I will be moving in February.  I have known it was a possibility for a couple months now, and have spent that time grieving and praying.  I have been grieving because I love what I do.  I have gotten to be friends with many of my customers and will miss seeing their smiling faces.  The cottage has finally become profitable after years of labor; and it has really just begun to grow to what I know it can be.

The good news is the answer to my prayers.  I have found a wonderful gal who loves the cottage almost as much as I do (if that's possible) to take it over.  Her name is Pam Wiggs.  She has been in the antiques business for many years, seems to like everything I do, and has a knack for finding (and displaying) the greatest stuff!  AND, she is probably the sweetest person I have ever met!  She currently has a little building at Ellen's Timeless Treasures in Humble, called "Pickering Hollow".  Be sure to go to her facebook page and check out some of her stuff:

She will begin working with me this month, and we will be traveling to the Atlanta Market together January 12th - 16th.  Kendra will be here that Friday and Saturday for our semi-annual "Come and Play While the Owners Away Sale".

Really, things won't be changing too much around here.  Jennifer of Metamorphose Upholstery and Furniture will be staying; as well as Crystal our in-house designer.  Crystal will be in on Thursday's the next two weeks, then back to her usual Fridays.  Stop by on those days if you have any decorating dilemmas you would like her assistance with.

Meanwhile, this isn't really goodbye yet, as I will be around this month.  Please stop by to meet Pam; and I hope you will continue to support The Old Oak Cottage.

LOL (my mom says that means "Lots of Love"),
