Hello from Suzanna’s Antiques! Welcome to May! Hopefully all of you are ready for Mother’s Day this weekend. If not, head to Suzanna’s Antiques. We have gift certificates available in any denomination you need! Why not get Mom a great vintage purse to put the certificate in, or wrap it in a cute antique hanky or pin a great brooch onto it! Then bring her over to Suzanna’s on Sunday and spend some time helping her pick out that special item. What a great Mother’s Day! Susie and I spent some time this week in Warrenton, so there are lots of great new items in the shop. We found some cute vintage card games, some beautiful pictures and wonderful books all for your shopping pleasure! There are also some new dress forms, a fun old banana stand and an awesome metal shelf with baskets! On our travels we also stopped into a new shop right here in Raleigh. “Affordable Chic” is on the corner of Creedmoor Road and Lynn Road in the Hidden Valley Shopping center behind the gas station! This is a very cute shop with an eclectic mix of vendors with everything from monogrammed bags to antique wingback chairs. Please stop in and say “Hi” and let them know you heard about them from Suzanna’s! Last weekends’ opening of the Farmer’s Market was a success! It was SO successful many of the vendors ran out of vegetables! Sam to the rescue! Sam, of Sam’s Country Porch, in front of Suzanna’s, had plenty of veggies! His corn on the cob is wonderful, just ask my son who ate three ears for dinner! Sam’s strawberries are in and his flowers are BEAUTIFUL! (Especially for Mother’s Day, hint, hint) Suzanna’s is also wedding central! Are you looking for interesting ideas for weddings? We have weddings on the brain, as Susie’s youngest daughter; my little sister has gotten engaged! We are gathering great ideas for all your wedding needs. Mason jars for flowers, a vintage bike with a basket for programs? We have got it all, even a wedding dress and an engagement ring if you are at the proposal stage! Some of our dealers and consigners have brought in new items as well. Jeff and Julia brought in a great green wicker lamp! Linda has some beautiful new pictures and a fun new red cabinet! Nancy has a cute little slipper chair in the office and a huge mirror next to the jewelry cabinet! Hope you all have a wonderful Mother’s Day, if we don’t see you and congrats to all the graduates this weekend! Next week be on the lookout for the newsletter a little earlier. We are going to try and get it sent on Wednesdays from now on, so you have time to plan your weekend! Thank you! Susie, Jenny and the Girls!
