Happy New Year! May 2013 be all you hope for!
As the new year starts, it is the time I reflect on the past year and plan for the new year. 2012 was the year of the new shop location. A year ago at this time I was contemplating moving, little did I know at the time, an opportunity to relocate would be coming my way. I relocated the shop in March and I have been very pleased with the move. I more than tripled the space, which allowed me to carry a nice variety of antiques of all sizes, pieces I made, and a nice assortment of items made by some very talented local artists. The holiday season was a great success. I was overwhelmed by the support of shop regulars and the many new friends I met.
In 2013 I will be further expanding the shop’s wide selection of eclectic and unique offerings. I have been talking with many talented local artists about carrying some of their items. I will be busy the next couple of months making all types of lights that were such a popular item last year. I am also going to expand my collection of nautical items, which was popular with both the shop regulars and tourists visiting the seacoast.
I have a number of local and out-of-state trips planned, searching for those unique items for the shop. I do love shopping! I will post my finds on this blog and Facebook.

Thank you for your continued support in 2012. Please stop in to get out of the cold and say hi. I look forward to seeing you soon.
Warm regards, Anne
