We have the best neighbors in Old Towne Orange who helped make the party fabulous! Watson's supplied us with the best brownies on earth!!!! I hope everyone got to have one because they were fabulous!!! If you didn't get a chance to get one, or if you want more, go to Watson's right across the street from us on Chapman! Be sure to go to the grand opening of Watson's USA starting with the ribbon cutting on Friday, June 29th at 4 p.m. Their party will continue all weekend with fun, food, music, and tons of giveaways!!!!

We are so blessed to have these wonderful businesses as neighbors and encourage you all to check them out next time you're in Orange!!!! Thank you all so much!!!
All our proud raffle winners!
Mostly we want to thank our customers!!! It's so great to see all our loyal customers in the store all at one time! And I love seeing everyone having fun and finding a cherished treasure to take home with them!!! It's wonderful to share the love of antiques with so many people! Without our customers coming to our events and visiting the store on a regular basis, we would not be celebrating another year in Old Towne Orange - so Thank you!!! We love you all!
And, a huge thank you to my husband, Don! He helps make all my dreams come true. I could never do this without him by my side! He's my partner in the store and helps me manage it, but also does alot of heavy lifting and alot of behind the scenes stuff!!! Plus, he gets extra points for putting up with me for over 32 years!!!
|I Love You Donny!|
