Only 3 more days till Christmas. I must say that it's been a great season for MY FRIENDS AND I. I've been in the crafty mood lately and dreaming of SPRING already. I know, I know, it's still Winter, BUT I can't help it. Spring is my favorite time of the year. Here is a sneak preview of some pillows I'm working on. Don't know when I will put these in the shop, probably when I can't stand Winter any longer! I am going to make a few in fall colors also and will put them in the shop soon.
A lot of customers ask how MY FRIENDS AND I came about. Well, pre-shop days I did Craft Shows, a lot of Craft shows and decided that it was a lot of work! I had always dreamed of having a shop, so MY FRIENDS AND I was born. I knew I didn't want to be at a shop 7 days a week so I decided to rent spaces and make it a collective. 25 years later we're still here and all of us at MY FRIENDS AND I still enjoy what we're doing. I can't say it enough " our customers are the best!"

Are you dreaming of a Silver Christmas? Maybe you'd like something pretty for yourself or a friend. Roseanne in Space # 4 has some really pretty silver items in her booth right now. These pots aren't just for tea and coffee they make beautiful vases for flowers in the spring. She also has lots of silver plate knifes, forks and spoons, plus serving pieces. AND all her silver is 20% off right now. Not sure how long the sale is going to last, so come in soon and see if you can't find something bright for Christmas.

Need bowls?

We have lots of vintage bowls in the store right now. Here are a few. The first 2 pictures are nesting bowl sets of Pyrex. The third is a beautiful Colbalt Blue bowl. If you need a bowl for your Christmas dinner come in and see what we have, and of course a vintage bowl to a friend is a great Christmas gift! You could even fill it up with something wonderful to eat and add a note to keep the bowl!

Send an e-card

Found this site that has some really cute Postcards you can email. It doesn't take the place of the old fashioned mailed Christmas cards, but it is fun.
It's a busy time at My Friends and I, lots of gifts and decorations going out the door. Don't forget to think of us if you need a last minute unique gift, and don't forget to mention our name to the men in your life, you know hint, hint, hint, there's lots of stuff I'd LOVE to get from my favorite store in Niles, MY FRIENDS AND I!!

Thanks to all of you who came to our sale! It was a success! So much so, that some of the dealers have decided to keep the sale going for a while longer. If you couldn't get in over the weekend, you still have time to get a few bargains.
