Fallish

 Just last week, we received a shipment of terracotta pumpkins in various sizes and colors – all with smiling faces! Also have some pumpkin shaped planters for your mums and other fall arrangements and flowers. We have a great selection of ‘prim’ cloth pumpkins, candles, stenciled jute rugs and tabletop, fall flags, florals, wreaths – including real bittersweet and lots more!

 

Fall starts today!

FALL PREVIEW 2016

The official start of fall is just over a month away — but towards the end of summer many of us look forward to cooler, less humid, more pleasant weather here in Pennsylvania.  We look forward to the beautiful colors of our fall leaves and bright blue skies. We celebrate the harvest with pumpkins, gourds, flowers and an abundance of garden goodies.

Here, at the shop, we are getting ready for all that.  While, of course, we still have our everyday great inventory of braided rugs, country style curtains, lamps and shades and more — we turn toward fall scents with our candles, fall colors with our wreaths and florals, fall themes with our flags, scarecrows, pumpkins and gourds.

Over the next couple of weeks, we will continue to introduce more fall treats into the shop.  The second weekend in September, we will host our annual open house — Stop before then and often to see the day-to-day changes.

See something here – but aren’t nearby?  Give us a call and we can arrange to have it shipped to you!  717-630-8390

Battery Operated Candles

Battery Operated Candles — everybody loves ’em.  In our almost 12 years in business, we’ve watched the evolution of BOCs.  We first carried small, white, plastic, flickering LED ‘flame’, tealight size BOCs that used a flat disk shaped battery and came 50 pieces in a display box.  We tentatively purchased one box and extra batteries, thinking it was a great idea, but not sure anyone else would think the same.  We turned one on and sat it on the counter and sold out in about a week – with many customers buying 4 or five and more at a time!

Within a couple months, one of our vendors made available small, wax covered tealights and tapers in a very country/primitive look that our customers loved.  The tapers needed only 1 or 2 AA batteries and were a really big hit.  They still are, but the next step was putting a timer right into those little BOCs so they turn themselves off and on — and that made them an even bigger hit!

Currently, many different companies produce many different kinds of BOCs – most are wax covered to resemble (as close as possible) a real candle —  some are made of resin and can be used outdoors with some water resistance — some are manufactured right in the candle holder and even lanterns, all as one piece.

One of the latest versions is the BOC with a moving flame.  From across a room or even closer, it appears that you are looking at a real candle burning, complete with a flickering flame.  It probably won’t be long before even these are improved on!  In fact, two of our candle vendors have begun adding on layers of candle wax to give these flickering flame pillar candles a more country/primitive look!

Take a look at these videos of our newest BOCs displayed in the shop – made of wax, needing 2 AA batteries (120 hour operating time), 5 hour timer option, 5″, 7″ 9″ pillars and 7″, 9″ tapers!!  A tiny LED shines on the ‘flame’ and makes it dance and flicker as a real flame would.

Countdown to Autumn

In just a bit over two weeks autumn will officially be here!  Does anyone else wonder what happened to summer – those long hazy days of summers of our youth?  I’m realizing that I mention how fast time is going by an awfully lot the last couple years.  My body is slowing down so I don’t understand why the days are doing just the opposite!

Anyway, fall is on the way and we wanted to show you some bits of what we’ve been busy with in the store.  It’s almost unanimous that fall is our favorite time to decorate – not necessarily with ghosts, witches, bats and the things of Halloween.  But with the colors, pumpkins, florals, scarecrows, cooler weather and fallish scents of harvest.  When you stop by here, these are some of this things you can expect to see:

After our Fall Open House . . .

Thanks to all who participated in our Fall Open House last weekend!  We enjoyed seeing all of you, and it seemed all of you enjoyed yourselves also! 

Saturday, Dale, our Embellish Your Story by Roeda™ company representative, shared information about the product, had a hands on demonstration and gave away magnetic embellishments.  She brought along a video loop showing a multitude of ways to use this magnetic product. We have given away a $25.00 gift certificate for EYS by Roeda to one of the participants who signed up on Saturday!  Congratulations!

In this last photo, the magnetic Nativity on the black board is new, and is available to purchase as separate pieces or as a whole collection.  Stop by the store or give us a call if you want more information about any of this product.

We’ve transported several boxes of non-perishable food items to the Red Cross Food Bank here in Hanover.  Thanks for your generosity – many of you brought in more than one item, and a few of you brought a bag full!  They will weigh your contributions and let us know how many pounds we had!

Customers who bobbed for apples won a free gift . . . candles, mini notepads, scented tea-lights, dip mixes, weekly memo pads!

We had many of you sign up for our giveaways.  We gave away a Bella Taylor quilted handbag, a Victorian Heart woven throw, a 1 year subscription to Country Sampler, a Cookbook full of Pennsylvania recipes,  a 2013 calendar, a lighted canvas print (more detail on this in the next blog), a store gift certificate, and a gift bag of soy candle products!  Whew . . .  congratulations!
