Final ‘pre-market’ post.

It’s almost time!!!!

My car is already loaded.  The kids (my son and daughter in law) are helping me load the U-haul tomorrow evening, and Thursday morning we deliver to the Rebel Junk Marketplace show at the Washington County Fairgrounds.

A couple of quick pictures of some last minute items I just prepped for the show.

Several different colors of REAL dried Hydrangea.  (from MY garden!)

Shabby chic square metal birdcages.  You can see what they originally looked like in the upper left hand picture.  I dry brushed them with a soft white paint, originally just as a base coat and prep before spray painting them white and distressing them.  I decided the the dry brush looked so good that I didn’t need to do the extra work!

LOVE these red and white lace edge metal cake stands.  (I love cake stands in general though!  I have a personal collections of 8 of them!)  They are so much fun to work into booth displays; for adding height or emphasizing a certain item.

Lots of assorted glass bottles and vintage jars headed to this show.

I’ll be spending all day Thursday and Friday setting up my double wide booth.  Hoping to get done in time to take photos before the early bird shopping starts on Friday evening.   (I did NOT accomplish this last year.  sigh.)   And I’ll TRY to post some photos when I get home Friday night to give you locals a preview.

I’ll for sure have time to post pictures next week, after the show for those of you who are not local and can’t make it to the show.

HOPE TO SEE YOU AT THE SHOW!

And DON’T FORGET to ASK for your 20% discount!

It’s beginning to look a lot like CHRISTMAS (in JULY!)

Yep, I’ve got almost ALL of the Christmas stuff out in the store now.  And there is a LOT of it leftover from last year since we were closed for the two weeks before Christmas last year because of the snowstorm.

So, if you don’t mind Christmas shopping when it’s 90 degrees out, the savings are INCREDIBLE!  Most of the items are being sold AT COST.  Some are even BELOW cost.  It’s ALL at minimum HALF OFF!

IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR EMAIL LIST MEMBERS!

For the past several emails I have sent out to the list, I have gotten an extremely high number of ‘returned / undeliverable’ ones from certain email servers. 

If your email server is:

Comcast

Earthlink

USPS

the emails I have tried to send to you have been bounced back.  I’m not sure why this is all of a sudden.  Perhaps your server recently upgraded their spam protection and you need to somehow ‘approve’ the store’s email address sophiescottage@yahoo.com in order to receive the emails from me???  Maybe there is some adjustment you need to make in your email settings.  You might want to contact your server and ask. 

I DO know that there is nothing I can do from my end of things.  The only way I can send the emails to so many people at once is by sending them ‘in bulk’.  But I send them ‘bcc’ (blind carbon copy) so no one else sees any of the addresses. 

So, if you are on the email list, but not getting emails every two weeks, and you WANT to get the emails, you need to do a little detective work with your email program and/or email provider.

If all else fails, and you really, REALLY want to get the emails but can’t figure out how to get them via your current server, you can always sign up for a free email account with Yahoo.  I actually PREFER using Yahoo for my email rather than our server.  This way, if our server is down, or if I need to work from a different computer, I can.   I’ve had all kinds of ‘server problems’ over the years; but never a problem with using Yahoo for my email.

Sorry for the inconvenience!  Ain’t technology grand?!?!?!
