The Holiday Shoppe at The Old Red Porch
It all happened so fast. One day I was tending my little shop, The Well Seasoned Nest, and before I knew it, I was packing boxes and moving to a new venue. Sometimes, a situation just presents itself and makes total sense. So you go for it. And I did...
The culmination - a blending of two shops in a warehouse space that has an old red porch. All moved in, but not at all settled in yet. And, all of a sudden, the holiday season here ... and now. Yikes!!! What's a gal to do??? Open the doors and greet customers. And so we will. Save the settling in for the dreary days of January, and set up " The Holiday Shoppe ".
Because so many have asked (and been so patient, thank you, thank you!) here's the plan, as we've formulated it so far. Open 6 - 8 or 10 times a year, for an extended weekend (Thursday through Sunday), with each sale being different, perhaps a theme now and again. In between sales, open by chance or appointment, while we junk around and set up for the next sale. We have great parking, a easy to reach location, and a facility with terrific potential.
For the 2013 holiday season, we'll run two sales, December 5 - 8, and December 19 - 22, for the following hours: Thursday and Friday from 4 - 7 PM, and Saturday and Sunday from 12 - 5 PM.
Initially, we will open only a portion of the space ( where there aren't boxes and mayhem abounding :/ ). And as we sort and settle, we'll open more and more of the space.
So, this Thursday, we will OPEN at 4 PM at the new location: 280 Racebrook Road, in Orange, right off the Boston Post Road, right behind the Chase Bank. You'll see a sign for Racebrook Business Park - enter the driveway and drive to the end - right to The Old Red Porch.
Expect holiday finery, one of a kind decor accents and furnishings, and revamped upscale vintage. Great gift giving items, too. There's a lot to see, so plan to visit awhile. Bring a friend or two or three! We'll put on some hot mulled cider, and chat awhile. Spread some holiday joy and catch up a bit. I look forward to seeing you! If you can't make it Thursday, there will still be Friday, Saturday, and Sunday! Oh, happy day....
