Moving Down in the World...and a Giveaway!


*sung to the tune of "The Jeffersons" theme song*

So I teased the other day that I had some good news to report about my booth in the antique mall...
I do!

The good news is that if I want it, I've been offered a much coveted space on the first floor of the mall.
Everybody knows that a first floor space translates into greater visibility, lots more foot traffic and increased sales.
I would have the new space effective March 31st.

This means, of course, that I'll be headed back from Warrenton a bit earlier than expected. Sorry, Sue!

You'll recall that I'm headed down there to help my buddy Effie set up and sell in Bar W Field during Antique Week.
That's okay though, my gal Effie will have it well under control.
Methinks I'm only gonna be a nuisance, anyway. ;-)

It's going to be a bit of a crazy-busy month, and I'm not entirely sure that I'm equal to the task, but with your good thoughts and prayers, I oughta be fine.

Speaking of which, if you'd just slip in a few extra words with the Man upstairs this coming Wednesday, that'd be swell...I'm scheduled for some follow-up medical testing which has me a bit worried, so my good news is tempered with that looming on the horizon.
Thanks bunches!

In other, much more exciting news, my blogging BFF Debra of Common Ground
is having a BIG giveaway!


She's celebrating all sorts of things with this giveaway...
Her 200th post, 350 followers, her bigger, better antique mall booth, Spring...you name it, Deb's celebratin' it!!!
Some might even say she's a celebratin' fool! Not me, of course...I don't wanna blow my chances of winning!

Click HERE for all the details.

Have a beautiful Monday!

craftymarta said...

Annie, I hope all your plans work out and that move to the first floor will translate into what you expected to be. I hope that whatever health stuff is going on will be taken care off with a clean bill of health. Maybe I get to meet you in person at the show, I'm still devating about going. Theresa is not helping me with all that advertising. I'm almost convinced. Take care and best of luck in all your plans. Blessings,Marta.

Anne,
Oh girl, I know the fear of the dreaded test. But you know what? It will be okay, I know it. Just try to put your faith in God & let him worry about it. Now about your space, YIPEE. Yes, location.location.location! Lisa
PS Your tag was mailed, I'm a bit worried about the bobble. Please email me when you get it.

Rosemary said...

Yay, I'm so glad you get a better spot!!
I will add you to my prayers!!

Hill Country House Girl said...

Hi again, Anne - thanks for your visit to hill country house! You are not weird at all! I think you are completely right about that big ol' fan, with the right things! Someone who does that cool industrial look would have made the best of that fan - probably could've even sold it! Great perspective on your part. I couldn't see it with the things I sell, but some creative soul could have done it! Take care.

June said...

Anne I will be praying for you. I pray all things go well with your tests. What a worry to have right now in the middle of all of this.
I'm excited for you to be moving downstairs girl.
hugs

Tracy Suzanne said...

Hi Darlin'. What wonderful news about moving down! Sounds like another blessing to me.

I'm happy to hold you in my prayers, you've been so comforting to me! I pray for only good news with your test results and that God will cover you with his, warmth, love and strength. I'm here for you Sweetie.

Thank you so much for being here for me last week. Hugs and love, Tracy :)

BellaRosa said...

Anne amor, wooohooo, so are you taken it?? I can't wait to see how everything looks "when" you do :) I have missed visiting your lovely blog and catching up with the day to day...did you take your test yet? When I get a chance I am going to email you and ask you some questions regarding Etsy if that is ok with you :) Take care amor and stay warm and safe on the roads! Now I have to go visit Debra before I miss her giveaway, I missed a few while I was gone :( Besos, Rose

THE SPICE CUPBOARD said...

Just had some testing done too and everything was FINE...so I know what you are dealing with and I am saying prayers for you to get the same result "FINE" !!! Congrats for the new space - that is how I started many, many years ago...was "downstairs" in a olde grist mill antique mall and then was asked to move UPSTAIRS (first floor)...and then the rest is history!!! Had enough confidence to open my own store and 20 years later here I am. So good luck with your new adventure!!

Theresa @ 612Riverside said...

Just talked to the man upstairs about you... and from the sounds of it He's already sending blessings your way, more to come I'm sure! Congrats on the space! I hope and pray all goes well for you, Theresa

Kathy said...

Anne, I haven't visited in a while, but so glad I stopped by. Congrats on your new piece of prime real estate at the antique mall!
