Log Cabin Primitives

******~~ Friendship Tulips ~~ ******
Its a Beautiful day in the country, not too hot and not too cold,
just a perfect Spring day. I had a wonderful time in PA visiting
my friends and all the neat shops I love. I came home with a
suitcase full of tips, information, and inspiration.
Please if your in the area stop by ~~ Aunt Daisy's in Emmaus, and
The Cinnamon Stick in Hereford, you will love what you see.
The shopping at Market in Gettysburg went well, as others have stated
it was a small show but I came home with my share of goodies.
PA for me has always been a wonderful source for small primitive
antiques, and that is what I was in the market for.

I believe one of my first posts in Blog Land was about my shed here at the
cabin and my desire to maybe one day open a small shop on select days.
Well the time is now.....I hung up my sign ~~ opened the door and
welcomed in a few relatives and neighbors, it was a fun few days.
I'm now in the processes of looking for signage to put down on
the main road so passersby will know where I am and when I'm open.

I also need to get the word out to all my Friends and the rest of my
Family so then can know I'm open for business.
I have some standing commitments that will not allow me to open right

now as often as I would like, but I can be reached for my hours by email.
Its a very small shop and what you will find is stated below.
I sell old ~ kinda old ~ made to look old.
primitive ~ grubby ~ grungy ~ items.

Its what I know ~ Its what I love ~ Its what I sell.
Wish me Luck !!
Hope you are all having a pleasant day, doing what you love.
Sending Hugs from the Cabin ~~ Connie xox

Ohhh Connie this is wonderful news!! I hope someday I'll be able to visit that lovely little shoppe which I'm sure is filled with goodies and I know once the word is out you will do VERY well! (How far are you from NYC??Dino has relatives in Jersey close to the city.)

I hope your day is beautiful. The sun is trying to peak out here but its much cooler than yesterday. Have a happy one!

Love and hugs ~ Jenn

What an exciting venture you are beginning...I wish you the best of luck.
I think that all of us would love to attempt what you are doing.
You Go Girl!


WOOHOO !!! A trip to Connecticut is on the list of things to do that will give me much pleasure! Of course if we open that bottle of wine I will bring with me....I may have to take over one of the bedrooms!
You know I am so very excited for you ... Dreams do come true...NOW we need a couple pictures to torture us!! XOXO Love you much...and always for your true friendship, Judy

Martha said...

Oh Connie, how exciting! I am sending you good luck wishes, what fun!
When we go to VT we stay at a little old cape cod house (I wish it was mine!) attached to the house is a little antique shop, she is only opened on weekends, but guest can access the shop through the bedroom, which locks from inside the bedroom, I always find sweet treasures in there. We leave next Thursday for my son's grauduation, I want to stop at shops along the way if time permits and and our Pug!
I live not far from PA and never go!
Hugs, Martha
