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

PARTY THYME !!

Time has just flown by and here it is - our Garden Party weekend !  We have been hard at work trying to make this weekend as special as we can...the weather has not always been our friend.

I get so many "LAST MINUTE"  ideas with no time to make them ..  !!!  But hey - we have a whole spring and summer to make them happen!

Last Sunday was the first day of our local (and fun) flea market - I love trudging thru the un-level, dusty dirt and stones looking for treasures.  However, I certainly found out how a winter with no "trudging" left me "out of shape" !!  After working the store, making dinner and lounging for the rest of the evening - I could hardly walk when I tried to go upstairs.  I am always on the "go"...but that slow walking and bending (HA!) certainly did me in.

I hope you can join us for our GARDEN PARTY - the garden fairies will be serving refreshments - and I can't wait to try the Hibiscus Glow Tea we will be serving (on its way here from Crow's Nest Primitives in Massachusetts.

Have a great week....spring has sprung!!

Your Country Friend, Judy
Americana is starting to arrive....

Vintage seed packets....

Wool Applique by June Walker is gracing the store ...

Pretty dried flowers and petals - so many uses!

HAPPY APRIL...

Wishy washy weather we are having this month ...I am so ready to get the gardens cleaned up and start the "garden season" here at the store.  Today it is 22 degrees ??  Patience is hard when we had some really nice days in February and March !  I love spring...the flowers, the budding trees - birds chirping...a happy time!

We are having a GARDEN PARTY April 22, 23, 24 where we will be selling our garden treasures for your home and garden.  The garden fairies will be serving some delicious goodies to munch on while you shop.

We will not be having our Herb Faire - this is bittersweet and a tough decision.  Our herb suppliers, Alta and Glen Houck, have retired and since we always felt they provided us with the very best herb plants, we didn't want to go with someone else. So 24 years of selling the very best  herbs has come to an end....and on to something new !

Your invitation -

Hope you will join us - we are looking forward to a fun time.

                                                                        Springthyme blessings,
                                                                                 Judy
