It’s been about a month since we began renovating our new shop space. In that time, walls were removed, doors and interior windows were removed, electric outlets and switches were moved, drywall was hung and plastered. And now, the cleanup has begun. Front windows and doors have been scrubbed and squeegeed – then we had to show off the shiny clean windows by putting in two American flag buntings.
Many of our customers have driven by the new space to check-it-out and are excited that it is convenient and so accessible. They all give it a thumbs up.
While we are working on the inside – painting, rebuilding displays and getting furniture and merchandise moved over from our current store, signage is being created for the outside and should be in place soon.
We’ve been sharing this preview of our new sign on our Facebook page and in the store:
What you will be seeing outside when it is completed:
This will make it so easy to find us in our new space!
Our local area is recognizing 2 big anniversaries this summer. This month, Hanover is celebrating its founding – its 250th birthday! And along with that, the Civil War battle at Gettysburg took place 150 years ago in July. A few days before that well known event happened, there was a lesser known, but important skirmish in Hanover.
This week Americans all over celebrate Flag Day on June 14. In many towns, there will be events honoring the history and symbolism of our country’s flag. And of course, the Fourth of July is a big celebration of independence in most cities and towns across the United States. At A Bit of Country on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, we have all our flags and buntings on sale at 15% off our everyday prices!
What’s a birthday celebration without candles – and a 250th birthday deserves alot of candles! Right now, we have our string taper pairs on sale and beginning on June 25, all of our in-stock (wax) candles will be on sale thru July 5th! If you need candles now, or will need them in the future, stop by to see the selection we have and take advantage of the great prices!
Memorial Day is just around the corner, Flag Day is June 14 and then there is the 4th of July celebration. We have recently restocked our decorative garden flags and have several that are perfect for these summer holidays. Colorful flags featuring red, white and blue with lots of stars along with garden flag poles make a great look in the garden or even hanging in a window.
We also have a variety of American Flags available in garden and standard sizes. Some are ‘antiqued’ and some are stitched with embroidered stars.
We have our Americana Nylon Buntings on display at the front of our store. These look great under a window or across a porch railing.
For those of you who like to use decorative mailbox covers — we have those in several flag designs, also. For the larger mailboxes, we do stock larger covers. Thought you couldn’t use a cover because your mailbox is aluminum or plastic — we have magnetic strips to put onto your mailbox to attach our covers. Now you know!
