Happy Wednesday! Hope you are all having a great week and enjoying this amazing weather! What a wonderful time to head to Suzanna’s! The shop is brimming with beautiful items for your home and yard! Suzanna’s Antiques is the ultimate in green living! Instead of buying new furniture without any history or character, come to Suzanna’s and buy a dresser that might have a great story! If it doesn’t Linda will make one up on the spot for you!! Hehehe! Or if you are building an outdoor pergola or gazebo, we have plenty of unusual and unique pieces you can use! There are columns and posts from old houses that have been torn down, great metal pieces to use across the front or sides, shutters you can turn into window boxes or even doors and windows that can be used however you want! The only limit is your imagination! Tracey brought in a great yellow tall cabinet perfect for storage in a kitchen, bedroom or craft room, and a cute pegboard unit that would be wonderful on a porch for gardening equipment! Gary and Teresa have a cute little ice cream set in white that is new to the yard this week, and a fun red wicker planter in their booth! Susie even brought in some fun metal boxes and baskets that would look great with your vegetable garden planted in them! Linda has a cute little green table and some beautiful artwork available in her booth along with some cute new vintage inspired aprons for mom or child! Our consigners have been hard at work bringing in new jewelry, game boards and glass wear for anywhere in your home! Come see what’s new! This weekend is full of fun things to do!
