Toast to You!! New Years Resolution

Want to give my sincere thanks to our customers,facebook fans and friends for your support in 2010. Without you we can't exist. Happy New Years and may 2011 be all you need or want it to be.
I will Shop Small in 2011. Will you?
Supporting small business helps the economy. So this year, I've made a resolution to shop at my favorite local stores more often. Join me and spread the word...

Well we survived another Christmas and what a blessed one it was. The economy and times have been hard this year but life continues on. Many things are to be learned and shared during such times in our lives. We hope all our friends,loved ones,customers and fans were as fortunate and blessed as us.

With the start of a new year approaching lets all rally together and believe for the best, one day at a time. Think on the now and rejoice in life itself. The rollercoaster of life has its ups and downs. We hopefully learn from those ups and downs and become stronger individually and as a nation.

Thank you sincerely for your business and friendship,
Antiques Attic

Buying Local---Independant Owned Businesses

Being an independantly owned business of course I'm interested in buying local campaigns that are spreading across our nation. On facebook I follow the 3/50 Project and Independant We Stand

Now that’s a partridge in a pear tree!

According to the PNC Christmas Price Index, the 2010 cost for each of the items from the “Twelve Days of Christmas” song would be $23,439. If you bought the items from independent, locally owned stores in your town, $15,938.52 would be reinvested in your community through taxes, payroll and other local expenditures. If you bought them at national chain stores, only $10,078.77 would be re-invested locally. If you bought them at a big box store that number would drop even more. So this holiday season give a gift to your community and “buy local.”

Take a Moment--Be In Wonder

by Antiques Attic on Wednesday, October 27, 2010 at 9:24am

 Sometimes we are surrounded by so many amazing things, we lose the sense of how truly wonderful they are or take for granted without a second thought. Objects such as a one-drawer stand,pewter candlesticks,or a wood bowl may be commonplace,plentiful, but consider any one of them as an object with a story and history, and you might find yourself in awe. They were made centuries ago in times and places that are today unrecognized,by the hands of a person who lived a life we have not and may know nothing about. They traveled longer and made more possibly treacherous journeys than any of us have ever experienced. They were used and carried and worn down by people who are now nameless to us and long dead. They sat in rooms where people were born,died,or silent witnesses to daily dramas and to the vast panarama of history itself.

If you just take a moment to really see and think about the objects around you, you may discover a whole new aspect. Maybe even renew your love and passion for the objects,collections you already have. Living surrounded by pieces of history and art--thats a blessing. Be thankful you are or were able to be a temporary steward for these items.
