This year the Holiday Treasures Show is going to be a little different. Different in that we are including 2 more friends at 2 locations!
As many of you already know, Diane Kaser (Molly Mo's) and I have hosted a Holiday Treasures Show for a number of years in her charming barn in Sublimity, Oregon. It has been so much fun and very successful. We have enjoyed seeing all our friends and loyal customers each year while enjoying a little wine, some great nibbles, lots of laughter and conversations - way past closing time. We have loved kicking off the holiday season with so many of you and hope that we have provided some yuletide inspiration.
Well, when things are successful, why change anything? Diane and I have asked ourselves that many times. We have nurtured and grown this little holiday event over the years and has been "our baby". A "baby" that has outgrown its "crib", aka, Diane's adorable barn on their charming farm property. The show has been so successful that space and parking has become an "issue" and almost prevented it from happening at all last year. We did overcome those issues and still enjoyed it all, but it was stressful.
So, we decided to ask our good friends Sarah (Roost Reimagined) and Pam (Mama Roost) to join us this year. This is a natural transition as we have all coordinated for our Spring 4 Friends Sale, a one-day progressive sale held mid-March.
Planning a sale in 2 locations has had its challenges. Finding a location that evokes vintage charm in a location relatively close to our original location was hard. We hope the Macleay Grange will fulfill that requirement. A charming, vintage structure with adequate free parking, heat and restrooms not too far from Molly Mo's. We think it checks all the boxes.
Getting you all one location to another is another challenge. We enjoy hosting a twinkly, nighttime preview event. It really sets a magical mood. How do we direct customers to different locations - at night - in the dark? We hope that by getting the "word" out early will allow everyone to inquire and find the Macleay Grange location. Molly Mo's will remain in the same great spot - so we are 50% there! We will be placing directional signs, posting directions on our blogs and Facebook pages. In addition we will provide directions and maps at each location for you to refer to along the way.
On Friday evening - preview night - there will be a $5.00 admission that applies to both locations. One fee for two locations of beverages and nibbles, not to mention twice the fabulous treasures!
If you cannot make it to the Friday evening preview, we will be open again on Saturday, November 22nd at 9 am 'til 3 pm. Molly Mo's will be open until 4 pm - bonus! There is no admission fee on Saturday - just lots of merchandise and holiday cheer!
So - mark your calendar and plan to join us for another great event! M.
