I promised Carole

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

I’m Carole’s husband Bill. Carole asked me to keep her store open the best I could. I said I would. I can process the orders and ship things. I can insert the new items that Carole purchased.  It’s all but impossible for me to describe the items with the enthusiasm of Carole’s words, stuff or to photograph the items with her loving eye. The two items below, remedy along with the descriptions, were sent to me in August. I said I would put them in the store and I have.


“I found these old cloth covered books quite unexpectedly while on a little day trip to visit some friends. The fabrics look earlier then the books to me. Wouldn’t they look nice stacked on a table, or if you have a shelf they would look wonderful with other favorite collectables. The top book measures 8-1/2 inches long and 5-1/2 inches wide. $75. Includes shipping, but not the little mouse. :)

“Hand dyed wool strawberry pincushion is filled with sawdust and the little emery, used to sharpen needles, is filled with sand. Each one is unique due to the hand dying. Strawberry measures 3-1/2 inches high and about 2-1/2 inches wide. I hung mine on my cupboard, which I keep closed during the Summer months for a more sparse look, and then open it back up in the Fall for a more cozy feel. Did I mention that the strawberries are hand sewn.”
