THE SCENTS OF COUNTRY ....

Ever since I can remember, I have filled our home with something to tickle our "noses" !  Candles and potpourri, simmering cinnamon sticks on our pot belly stove - dried herbs from the garden. Today we sell some of the best potpourri on the market - however we want to entice you to create your own signature scent with the unique oils we have for sale, along with all the goodies you will find in these drawers.  Add to your existing potpourri, freshen it up with new refresher oils and make lots to give as gifts.

You can make it pretty or primitive - flowery or spicy !  Every country lover I know has purchased cinnamon rosehips at one time or another.  By adding other drieds to them can change the whole effect.  Cinnamon pieces, oranges, apples, pods, all make unique additions.  Our refresher oils come as a spray and are of high quality.  No need to throw out that potpourri that no longer has a scent.

Many, (many) years ago, a friend took me to a country store where I found this wonderful potpourri - it was lavender, orange peel and cloves.  It was so perfect for my bathroom and I have made it ever since.  Needing more for myself I thought you might like to make your own too - so we have filled the drawers of our vintage "gift wrapping counter" (this piece came from a local pharmacy, was built in 1902) and have ordered lots of "refresher oils" for you to create your own signature scent!

Back of counter with 24 drawers

Oranges, apples, rosehips, berries and more

Tiny pumpkins (putka pods), bay leaves, berries and flower petals





Be sure to open the drawers and see all the goodies inside when you next visit.
                                                                       
                                                                         Happy summertime blessings,
                                                                                         Judy

A SWEET BEGINNING...

One week into our new "adventure" and I have nothing but good vibes all around me.  Much "tweaking"needs to be done in our new booth - this is a real learning experience all over again.  We will keep at it until it feels just right.   I know many of the vendors who have booths at the Morgantown Market, and am excited to work with them.  Many have been in the business for "years upon years" (not that any of us are old - just experienced)!!  As I walk around and look at the different booths, it reminds me of how much this business has changed.  There is something for "everyone" at the Market - I don't know how anyone could leave without an armful of treasures!

The Cinnamon Stick news... the store is filled with wonderful goodies for your summerthyme decorating and Fourth of July celebrations.  Tony has been hard at work keeping me busy pricing and rearranging constantly.  (a good thing)!   New items appear most days - some olde - some new and  always unique.  
Next week (June 13th) we will be traveling to Market Square to (rolling my eyes right now) order Halloween, Fall and Christmas.  That is always hard for me as I am not a "plan ahead" storekeeper.  I get my whims and then act on them.  (hard to think winter when I feel like it was just yesterday that summer arrived)!  I will do my best to FIND THE BEST !!

On a personal note - Raelyn, now 3 years old, will have the rods in her back replaced this Wednesday, June 8.  This is a big operation and as a family we are asking for your prayers and wishes for a speedy recovery.  This little one has been thru so much, however you would never know it.  She is a warrior for sure - always smiling - always ready to give a hug - ride her bike - dance with her sisters ...a typical 3 year old and amazing!

Come visit soon - you don't want to miss out on any of the goodies we have to offer.

                                                                     Summerthyme magic is in the air,
                                                                             Fondly,
                                                                                     Judy

NEW ADVENTURES & A GOOD OMEN....

     Some say "you can't go home again" ...I believe you can and with our "new adventure" hope to prove it!   Tony and I are very excited as we are opening a "booth" in the Morgantown Market - located on Rt. 23 in Morgantown, PA!  We planted our roots in Morgantown twenty-five years ago as The Cinnamon Stick - for nine great years.  Needing to grow, we found the Hereford store and will celebrate seventeen years there this August.

WE ARE NOT CLOSING THE HEREFORD STORE...
WE ARE NOT CLOSING THE HEREFORD STORE....nor are we retiring !!!

Just wanted to get that out of the way.!!!!

     When we opened Hereford we kept both stores open for one year, but it became more than we could do.  Since we are now only open Thursday thru Sunday in Hereford I find this "girl" needs something more to do...therefore renting a booth in the Morgantown Market seems perfectly logical...."back to our roots".  Not exactly prepared, but I am putting my hands to the grind stone and hoping to make it as special as can be!!

THE GOOD OMEN PART - Twenty-five years ago on June 1, 1991 we opened The Cinnamon Stick in Morgantown----it so happens I will sign a new lease at Morgantown Market June 1, 2016.  What better omen can that be as my love of Morgantown - the town - the people - the shopping has never wavered!  I'm betting "you can go home again"....stop in and watch us grow!

                                                                         Fingers crossed,

                                                                                       Judy

WELCOME MAY....

The month of May is so welcoming...however this year it has welcomed us here in Pennsylvania with  rain, rain, rain !!  Some say we "need the rain"...maybe we do, however I would rather have sunshiny days and rainy nights (while I am sleeping)!

Our Garden Party was a huge success and a big thank you goes to everyone who made it so special. From our "tea bag cookies"  made by a sweet friend...


...delicious peppermint mints -


Lavender Egg Salad tea sandwiches - and Hisbicus Glow Iced Tea - it was a delightful weekend!



The weather was perfect and I believe everyone found a special treasure (or more)!

Now we prepare for a patriotic summer ( it is election year you know - thought that would make you smile)!!  Lots of vintage and new flags, pillows, stars will appear and so will Uncle Sam!
The "birds & bees" are always a summerthyme favorite to decorate with and we have "new" fabric that I already made some pillows with and is available for sale by the yard.


Tony has been quite successful in finding unique pieces we call "Garden Art" to plant in or decorate your gardens with.  Stop in soon as new goodies are arriving every day~~~

Looking forward to your visit......Judy
