Just wanted you to get a glimpse of what we will have at the upcoming TWO CHICKS COUNTRY CHRISTMAS CUSTOMER APPRECIATION DAY sale on the 21st of THIS MONTH! Yes, folks, November is here! Can you believe it? Seems like only yesterday we were preparing for the SPRING sale, and here we are, getting ready for Christmas! It really has been a great year, and as a way of showing our appreciation, we love having you as our guests for lunch, or just coffee and cookies, but most of all, catching up on what's going on with YOU!
We worked for quite awhile this weekend on arranging furniture, and still have several more pieces to come upstairs. Hopefully by this time next week, all of the furniture will be in place, and we will be pulling everything we have been gathering out of the bins and boxes in which they are stored. That's the fun part! And, before too long, we will be decorating the tree, too. Can't wait for you to see all we have in store for you!
Oh, and stay tuned...next time, I will show you pics of the awesome barnwood and beadboard cabinets from PA!

Since I usually give you pictures of THINGS (you know, things we are either getting ready to sell or things we just sold!), I thought I'd give you, in this post, a picture of people! I really just want you to get an idea of the kind of wonderful customers, FANS, really, that we have! These three awesome ladies have been coming to our barn sales for quite a while, and not only are they great customers, we've become friends! And, they take a vacation day for the sale, so they can always come on Friday to get the best selection!
We have met so many wonderful people since we started this endeavor you really wouldn't believe it. We have many repeat customers, and love to catch up with them during the sales. Last year, for the first time, we hosted a Country Christmas Customer Appreciation Day event, and we are doing the same this year. The date is November 21, the Saturday before Thanksgiving, and the time is from 8am until 6pm. This is a one day only sale, and we will be serving lunch (on the house!) from around 11 until 1. We will also, as always, have snacks...cookies, cake, coffee, etc., available all day. Looking forward to seeing you all there! Check back next week for pics of the barn taking shape with lots of new (not NEW, just new to us!)furniture. We started moving things up there last night, and it is going to be AWESOME!!!

was a huge success!! We had a GREAT time, catching up with old friends, and meeting alot of new ones. I really can't thank you, our customers, enough. You make all of the hard work we do preparing for the sales, soooo worthwhile! And, since pictures really can tell a better story than I can (especially this time of day!), I am adding LOTS of them this time! And remember, our Country Christmas Customer Appreciation Day is coming up soon. Nov. 21 is the date...but more on that later! Hope you have a great day!

Well, good day blog followers! I am so glad you decided to stop by...the BARN SALE is coming up SOOONN!!! Sharon and I are as busy as bees...the furniture is all arranged, and we are adding LOTS of smalls now. We'll be putting the final touches on in about a week, and the sale is NEXT Friday, September 18 and Saturday, September 19th. We'll be open from 9 til 5, both days...makes it less confusing, don't you think?
The pics included in today's post are two pieces of furniture from that auction awhile back. The PAIN of that trip is long forgotten, and we have only fond memories of it now. Can't WAIT for you to see all of the cool furniture we got that day! See you soon!

The sale was advertised as an estate sale, but this was no ordinary estate. The elderly man had owned an antique store. So, his collection was extensive. And, we learned that a Philadelphia auction house had already hauled away the "good stuff" for a catalog auction. But, we were VERY happy with what was left!
It was a long, hot day, but we had a GREAT time, and ended up with 21 pieces of furniture!! Needless to say, we planned a trip for the next day.
Sunday, we waited until 7 to leave...you know, slept in!!! We went with the same short bed pickup, and a bigger truck, hoping to collect all of our treasures. We CAREFULLY loaded them piece by piece, putting blankets and straps wherever we thought we needed them. Well, we STILL didn't get it all, so we planned another trip for later in the week. No big deal, really, since the drive wasn't all that bad, and we were sure we could get the rest in one truck.
I say no big deal, because at the time, that's how it seemed. Well, that was before we took a wrong turn that took us into WORSE traffic on a Sunday afternoon (and 20 miles or so out of the way), and then had a truck breakdown at the WaWa just west of the Bay Bridge!!!
So all of the furniture on the bigger truck (of course) had to be unloaded and reloaded onto the truck and trailer that my DEAR husband brought up to rescue us! And, the truck spent two nights at WaWa, waiting for a tow truck to bring it home!
The final chapter of this LONG story was a trip up on Thursday to get the last of the furniture. That trip, thankfully, was uneventful!
In the end, we were still REALLY blown away by the bargains we got. Can't WAIT for the fall barn sale, September 18th and 19th!! YOU WILL LOVE THIS STUFF!!
What a GREAT auction!!! Between the two of us, we bought 21!!! pieces of furniture!!

Having just realized that the Sunday we had planned for the third day of our spring barn sale is PALM SUNDAY, we have decided to omit that date from our sale. The dates for our sale are now...Friday, April 3rd from 10-6 and Saturday, April 4th from 8-6. Please note that we have extended our Saturday hours in order to accommodate our Sunday customers. Hope to see you there!!!

Okay, folks, the real work has begun!!! The weather was sooo beautiful this past weekend that I got out and worked outside...sorting, scrubbing, sanding, you name it! And, I wanted to show off the BEAUTIFUL salmon colored cabinet I found in PA. And yes, those are strawberry crates, and I even have dividers and strawberry boxes to put in them. The string winder is really a cool piece, too. It came from a country store auction on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.
Keep checking back, there is still a whole pile of awesome stuff in the shed, not to mention Sharons stash!!! P
