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....

We will be open this weekend but closed on Monday, May 26 to celebrate Memorial Day.  Traditions shouldn't be broken when they are so much fun - and this is an "antique & junking" day for Tony and I !!

And, you better believe I will be carrying my "Antique & Junking Satchel"...hoping to fill it over and over again!  For sale at The Cinnamon Stick - $36.

Our Spring Tea was a great time...and we are now filling the store back up with new treasures...loving this time of year!

Yesterday was spent (a quiet day at the store) rearranging and adding new treasures !  Of course that means making messes....I am so good at that! (smile)!!  It is exciting to make changes...and I love getting new goodies...however I tend to always go back to "same old, same old" - tried and true country garden wares. 

I love container gardening, and am always on the lookout for unique items to plant in - new and old.   I am over anxious to get started and trying to take deep breaths to be patient!  The ground is still very cold  - and I am taking the new "johnnie-jump-ups" I purchased in every night. 

All in good time.....
 This paper flowers will have to do for now...
