SuzAnna's Antiques Easter Newsletter!

Happy Easter Week!
SuzAnna's Antiques has gotten a makeover just in time for the Easter Bunny!
A fun sunshiny yellow and green paint job has freshened us up to enjoy the spring and summer!
Along with the new paint job, the yard is undergoing a transformation too!
Doors and windows are getting a great new home, making them much easier to shop.
All the beautiful corbels and architectural pieces we just got in have been centered into one fun location.
Pieces are getting painted and spruced up for SPRING, although the temperatures are supposed to approach summer like weather over the next few days!
Come get your daily dose of vitamin D shopping the yard for some great deals!
We have even gotten in our first small shipment of plants for the summer and hope to be carrying a great collection of cottagy garden plants.
Inside the shop lots of changes are happening as well!
A fun new chippy armoire is right up front with all the beautiful aprons in it!
Along with an amazing glass door cabinet in the kitchen area!
From now til Easter, all SuzAnna's Antiques Easter items will be 40% off!
And remember SuzAnna's Antiques will be closed on Easter Sunday so we can all spend time with our families!!
Susie's back surgery is Friday morning for everyone who has been asking!
All thoughts and well wishes are appreciated!
Have a great, safe holiday weekend and we look forward to seeing you soon at SuzAnna's!

What an amazing weekend we had!
We got in a huge assortment of vintage architectural pieces on Friday.
Table legs, sofa legs, corbels, posts, shutters, iron pieces, metal gates ….we even got in an entire white wrought iron porch! So many beautiful pieces to decorate your yard or home! You must come in and see them before they are all gone! New items have come in throughout the shop as well!
A fun little pink wicker set in Gary and Teresa’s booth will not last long! A stunning red lacquered hutch has made an appearance in Sam’s booth! Jeannie is having a sale of 20% off in her booth through April 1st and has some very cute pieces! An amazing seven and a half foot tall kitchen cabinet with red bead board backing is chock full of linens right now! It is just begging to come home with me…so please come get it before I do!!!! And speaking of linens, a new consigner has brought in some very pretty pieces; table runners, dresser scarves, crocheted doilies. Many would make fun additions to Easter baskets next weekend! Jewelry also is small enough to fit into an Easter egg! Come browse the pins or earrings or even a set of pearls spilling out of a pink plastic egg! Since we are on the subject of Easter, you must come see what the bunny has brought us! Many vintage eggs, baskets, bunnies and chicks! And, for all you parents out there, where does the Easter Bunny live? Try answering that question when your five year old asks during dinner!! Any ideas?? SuzAnna’s Antiques will be going back to regular hours April 1st, 10 to 5:30 Monday through Saturday and 1 to 5 on Sundays, but we will be closed on Easter Sunday, April 4th.

This week, it is all about aprons! I got this email this week, and Gary and Teresa have their aprons on sale for 20% off, plus a new consigner brought in some of the MOST beautiful aprons ever, so enjoy
The History of 'APRONS' I don't think our kids know what an apron is. The principal use of Grandma's apron was to protect the dress underneath, because she only had a few, it was easier to wash aprons than dresses and they used less material, but along with that, it served as a potholder for removing hot pans from the oven. It was wonderful for drying children's tears, and on occasion was even used for cleaning out dirty ears.. From the chicken coop, the apron was used for carrying eggs, fussy chicks, and sometimes half-hatched eggs to be finished in the warming oven. When company came, those aprons were ideal hiding places for shy kids. Those big old aprons wiped many a perspiring brow, bent over the hot wood stove.. Chips and kindling wood were brought into the kitchen in that apron. From the garden, it carried all sorts of vegetables. After the peas had been shelled, it carried out the hulls.In the fall, the apron was used to bring in apples that had fallen from the trees. When unexpected company drove up the road, it was surprising how much furniture that old apron could dust in a matter of seconds. When dinner was ready, Grandma walked out onto the porch, waved her apron, and the men folks knew it was time to come In from the fields to dinner. It will be a long time Before someone invents something that will replace that 'old-time apron' that served so many purposes. We even have a PANTS apron!
We still have spaces available for SuzAnna's Treasure Markets.
Call the shop to reserve your space!
See you soon at SuzAnna's!
