Good Afternoon! This newsletter is coming to you a little early this week since there is a great activity tonight that we thought you all might like hearing about! Historic Downtown Hillsborough is having a “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” Ladies night out tonight, Thursday April 30th from 6-9pm. Join Mayor Tom Stevens and his wife while downtown businesses greet lady shoppers with flowers to build bouquets while flower supplies last! There will be great shopping specials, wine, hot teas, tasty goodies, truffles, chair massages and live music. Jeannie, who has her fabulous booth here at Suzanna’s, from Uniquities in Hillsborough will be participating! Guys can come too! There will be special locations open with free wings and games!! Something else we are all excited about are STRAWBERRIES! Sam of Sam’s Country Porch Antiques located just in front of Suzanna’s will start having fresh picked strawberries for sale this weekend! His strawberries, and in weeks to come fresh veggies; along with all of his beautiful plants are some of the best parts of summer! Sam will have vegetables available Monday thru Saturday under his canopy. We have beautiful pictures of some of his plants and flowers on the blog! Speaking of fresh vegetables, the North Raleigh Farmer’s Market is having their grand opening this weekend at Falls River. The market will run Saturdays from 8 to 12 and Wednesdays from 4 till 7. If you miss their market, don’t forget Sam’s is open Monday thru Saturday! This Saturday you can see the two story shopping cart at Falls River, courtesy of NC Department of Agriculture’s “Goodness Grows in NC” program. There will be a ribbon cutting at 11:00 am and “Grillzilla” will also be in attendance. For more information visit http://www.northraleighfarmersmarket.com/ . And finally, wait till you see some of the new items at Suzanna’s Antiques! A new red dresser came in with great lines, located in the kitchen area to showcase the fact that you can use furniture where ever you want, not just in traditional spaces! A beautiful new turquoise wardrobe graces Jeannie’s booth along with a cute standing pink lamp! Ray and Gloria have a beautiful globe lamp with hand painted roses on the glass in their booth. And Linda brought in a beautiful vanity with mirror that would look great in any bedroom! Remember last weekend when I told you Tracy was hard at work in her booth. She never disappoints! Tracy has some of the prettiest shabby chic items! And she puts thing together in such fun ways! Come see some of her embellished hand mirrors or shelves made from cigar boxes. There is something for everyone in her booth! She even brought in some great red bouncy chairs for the outdoors, along with a fleur de lies garden arch! Gary and Teresa brought in a whole new set of outdoor items! There is a fun yellow chaise lounge with matching kitty and some cute birdhouses for your yard! Jeff and Julia have marked down some items in their booth! The beautiful precious stone world map featured on the blog a few weeks ago is on special! Come in and see what you can’t live without! Thanks Susie, Jenny and the girls!
