No excuses for not writing....just other things get in the way.  No promises but I will try to do better.
We are back from vacation and what a fun time we had...perfect weather - beautiful family to share it with.

Now it is time to get back to work - and I suppose fall and Halloween are on the agenda.  Yesterday I received wonderful new fall pillows (white pumpkins, crow and bittersweet all hand appliqued on wool and cotton fabric) from June Walker - one of our handmade crafters.  June is 83 years young and an excellent quilter.  Every once in awhile she leaves her craft to make us the Toothbrush Mats you see in the store (well they go very quickly so maybe you haven't seen them)!  Yesterday she brought me the pillows and hand appliqued pincushions, also with pumpkins on them (and some Toothbrush Mats)!!  I didn't want to put them away so I filled the shopping cart basket with them....thus starting the "fall season" at The Cinnamon Stick.....and so it begins!!

Next week Raelyn has her first "extension" surgery - on Tuesday, Aug. 5th.  I will take my days closed and stay with the kids so not a lot of decorating will get done.  I think this year fall decorating will go little by little the whole month of August.  As orders arrive I will make displays and most likely change them 10 times before it all comes together.

There will not be a fall open house again this year, however, I am planning something very special for September....and our fall/Halloween workshops will be announced soon.  Bear with me "Country Friends" !!

Will keep you up to date with Raelyn and all the happenings at The Cinnamon Stick.  For daily updates check out our Facebook page by clicking on the icon on side bar.  When new arrivals come in I usually post a picture there.

Have a great weekend....Fondly, Judy

I don't know about you, but the month of June flew by way too fast!  I am sad that I have been neglecting this blog but my mornings fly by even faster!  I have just enough time to post on Facebook but ....I really want to share more here with you!
July is a new beginning...bear with me !

We are open Thursday, July 3,  closed Friday, July 4th and reopen Saturday, Sunday and Monday the 5th and 6th and 7th...  the end of the month is vacation time but will post those dates later.

The store is filled with wonderful summerthyme and everyday treasures - lots of vintage goodies too.  We are having fun as we change into a "General Country Store"...with something for everyone. (always keeping are roots in the ground though) !!

Working (thinking about - that is work too)!  Autumn and Halloween...once I start I get so "over anxious" to share ideas with you....(not going to happen - keeping myself in control)!!  Helen Voytilla has come up with great handmades and Dianne's goodies are always a surprise!  I have ordered some wonderful Autumn florals and workshops are being "thought" of right now!

HOWEVER...let's all enjoy what summer we have left - and I hope a visit to THE CINNAMON STICK is on your list...!!  Fondly, Judy

We are in the sixth month of the year already..time is going fast now...didn't do that in February and March!!
Lots of new goodies are in the store...we have been very lucky with our "finds" lately, and Tony is working hard to get everything "store ready" !  Things have even spilled over on the front porch - stop soon and see if there is something just "perfect" for you!

We will be closed Monday, June 9th as we travel to the Market Square Trade hopes of finding lots of new treasures.  It is time for us to think Fall, Halloween and Christmas (oh dear!!)

June 1, 1984 was when we first opened our retail is our 30 year anniversary and we have decided to celebrate all month by having in store special sales and happenings!  Each week there will new merchandise on sale and we will also have one day only specials !!  This week all our soaps and potpourri will be 20% off - (we have great soaps and the best smelling potpourri)!!

Looking forward to seeing you soon....
