November Newsletter
It's a good thing we took this picture last week because, after a week of heavy rain, the reds are gone, and it's beginning to look a lot like winter. It's been a beautiful fall, and we're grateful to have been here to enjoy it.

We had a very successful Fall Fox Valley Show, although many of our sales took place after the virtual doors had closed. It's difficult to determine whether or not the mid-week format had an effect on the show as a whole, but online shows have been excellent for us, and we'd like to continue doing business from home.

Our FALL OPENING - this weekend

Since Fox Valley, we've been preparing for our Fall Opening - in its new format - online only on day 1, and in-person or online on day 2 and through the month. We'll begin on Saturday at 10:00 (online only), and the shop will be set up for the show and open on Sundays. We've saved our very best for this event, in which we're listing seventy-five new acquisitions - furniture, jewelry, smalls, and artwork. Newsletter subscribers will receive a reminder and and a link to the show at 10:00 on Saturday. One way or the other - online or in person - we hope you'll have a look.

December Gift Fest

Beginning on December 1st, this year's edition of our annual December Gift Fest will begin. As we did last year, we've set aside over 100 pieces, antique and vintage, chosen for their giftablilty and modest cost. We'll begin organizing this event next week and will send out another email reminder as December approaches.

We've been busier than usual during the past few weeks, so this will be a bare bones newsletter. Pippin and The Back Page will need to carry this one, but we'll make up for it on Saturday. Look for a reminder in your inbox on Saturday morning at 10:00.

Another sign of Autumn - Conway's Festival of the Hills, which was held on October 1 & 2. We decided to be open, so we missed most of the parade, but we live just beyond the end of the parade route, so we got to see the antique cars and tractors, fire engines from Conway and several nearby towns, and owners and a staff member of a very special Conway institution. Click here for an inspiring sight.
Thanks for reading.
Be safe and stay well.
