Sunday, November 17th. If you want to shop early please come at 10 a.m. until noon. However, I ask that you bring a non-perishable food item. The food will be given to The Momentum Center (they are located in my Centertown neighborhood – and do amazing work in our community). At noon- 4 p.m. the store will be open to everyone (however, if you still want to bring a donation that would be greatly appreciated!)
This is a big day for the store! Starting mid-winter I start buying all the cool, authentic, vintage I can find. Then I store it in my basement……the week before I start hauling it upstairs and piling it in my garage. The Saturday before the trek to the store begins. (I’m also packing up all the fall to head back to the basement for next year)…..and at 4 p.m. the store closes for the overhaul.
It takes about eight people (six hours each)….and the store is magically transformed in to Christmas. So, why would I do this? Wouldn’t it be easier to bring the holidays in little, by little? Sure, but what would be the fun of a holiday open house then?
This is one of my favorite days (behind the Flea on Seventh, and NY Day Lakeshore Antique Trail Sale)….the Magic of Christmas at the store.
So, please know, I’ll continue to post the treasures headed to the open house….but you won’t be able to purchase them until the 17th. If it helps your anticipation…..there will be cupcakes ;0
