Happy Thanksgiving!!

Have a wonderfully high calorie holiday...I love the turkey skin crisp out of the oven...the pecan pie (I am not fond of pumpkin pie--I don't like veggies in my dessert) with real whipped cream....the yams with marshmallows....the crispy dressing (want some rolls dripping with butter with a side of bread?) sister's wonderful chocolate strata pie.  Can't wait!!!  And to see several of my nieces and their kids..there will be 4 generations there!

Oh, and then the shop will be open Friday from 9 am to 8 pm.  Don't forget "Small Business Saturday".  Do come work it off!  We'll have an aerobics class in the back room so bring your exercise clothes with you (NOT!!).

Wintersteen Farm Wreaths

We are very excited about Christmas at the shop this year.  We have lots of vintage Christmas including trees, ornaments, linens to deck the halls from the front door to the kitchen.

We've extended our hours through December.  Wednesday through Saturday we will be open 10-5:30.

The Friday after Thanksgiving we will open early, close late....9 am to 8 pm.  Next Saturday is "Small Business Saturday" so support the small business you love..Vintage Station!  And we are supporting a small business we love...Wintersteen Farms in Sandy, Oregon.  They make gorgeous farm fresh wreaths.

 Jeff and Kelly, the owners of Wintersteen Farms, are Sonya's son and daughter-in-law.  Jeff is a "boutique home builder" but, as we all know here in Oregon, business is very slow.  They have sold wreath material to wholesalers from their farm in previous years but now they are making wreaths themselves on a smaller scale.

The wreaths are very fresh and full.  They include noble fir (which holds its needles much longer than Douglas fir),cedar, juniper with berries, and pinecones.  We have a few in the store now.  The packaging is very impressive. The wreath is wrapped in a clear bag to preserve it's freshness and includes a satin ribbon for hanging, tissue, and raffia all in a gorgeous box.

What a great hostess gift or impressive gift for family and friends! They can be directly shipped. Click here to go to their website or use the link in our sidebar.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Christmas is Starting to Sparkle

We are starting to fill the shop with Christmas.  Yes, it is a little early but since we are open only four days a week we need to start early.  We're hoping you will love what we are bringing into the shop.  More is coming and this is just the beginning!
