It's all about the windows

Brenda and Martha have created two inviting window displays for February. Yesterday, the "pink and green" window needed to be replenished. The wedding window is a classic. Remember when Nona operated The Flower Pot? Her wedding window was also a stunner!

snow, cold & ice

Snow, cold weather, ice in the bathroom.....still the dealers keep bringing in new merchandise.

There is a "new"/old blue and white coverlet that keeps winking at me.

Yesterday, there was a bowl full of jewelry that was receiving constant attention. A certain dressing table was the object of appreciate chatter. New "marked" jewelry appeared in one of our cases. Teddy Roosevelt entered from the rear and exited from the front. For those who were listening, there was a quick lesson about real amber vs. fake amber. Like Maine weather, we are always a surprise.
