May is going to be a crazy month and we're all going to be busy, busy, busy.

Piece of cake, right?

Who's Who...Meet Ann of Wild Thyme

Meet our favorite vintage clothing dealer, Ann of Wild Thyme!  Ann is known for her beautiful clothing, accessories & hats.  Here is a little bit more about Ann.

Wild Thyme is my retirement business, something I began after completing a career in teaching and youth services, but my interest in vintage clothing and antique textiles, like me, has been around a long time.

I began wearing vintage when I was in college in the 1960’s – Victorian petticoats, 1930’s men’s suit vests. I loved combining styles and eras to find my own look. In the late 70’s I lived in Amsterdam for a short while and spent many happy hours in flea markets there and in Paris. I came home with my suitcases full of old lace and vintage bits and pieces…over 30 years later I am still doing the same thing!

April Design House Sneak Peek!

We are so excited for this weekend!

It's been a month in the making and now we have a sneak peek for you.  Our April 5, 6 & 7 Design House is on the way!

New decorating themes, new furniture, new garden-inspired accessories, we have it all!

Here is a quick sneak peek of what we have this month...

Pucker Power - Red Onion Pickles

Anything pickled rules! 
These red onions are super yummy. They are great in salads, on hamburgers, smoked trout, and take the Cowbell's ham & cheddar biscuit sandwich up to a divine taste level sensation.
