We have a winner and a new GIVEAWAY

THANKS to all of you who joined in the "Giveaway" for April. I put all the names in a hat (yes really) and picked one out with my eyes closed (yes really) and the lucky winner is Carol Hurst.

HERE'S a picture of the MAY "GIVEAWAY" It's the cute little birdhouse which actually is a box and a framed vintage postcard from the early 1900's. I put this postcard as an example in the picture but if you win you can exchange it for any other one in the shop. Also you'll get the cute little vintage doily that they are sitting on. How's that for a super "Giveaway". Same rules as last time. You MUST email me that you want to be entered for a chance to win (click on email me at the right) and you MUST pick it up at the store if you win. EASY.

Niles is having a celebration!

of the Niles Town Plaza. It's going to be a really fun day. It starts at 10:00 on Sat. with music and then at 11:00 for speeches by the Mayor and other dignitaries. Noon the Gunfighters of the old west are doing a live shootout show and around 1:00 cake will be served (while it lasts!) and then from 1 to 4 there will be more music. I almost forgot there will be kids games and face painting going on all day too. And of course shopping at MY FRIENDS AND I. Bring your camera for lots off photo opps.
Sunday the celebration is still going on but with Music only from 12 to 4.

Ah........ Spring!

Now that Easter is over we are all thinking Spring and Mother's Day. It's never too early to pick up something special for Mom and who wouldn't love a pretty tea cup and saucer. We have quite a few in the shop right now. Speaking of cups look at the second picture and see what Peggy, dealer # 15 made. These wind chimes are so cute and cleaver. They are one of a kind so if you see one you like you'd better grab it before someone else does. Believe me at our Annual Niles Art, Garden and Quilt (first time for the quilts) show on May 16th they will fly out the door.

Still time to find a cute Bunny on sale. They will be hopping out of the store sometime after this weekend, so don't delay.

News about My Friends and I

After 28 years of being in business MY FRIENDS AND I will be closing.
I'm sorry for playing an APRIL FOOLS joke on you, but I couldn't resist!
We are NOT planning on going out of business for a very long time , probably never, well I guess I shouldn't say never, but it's not going to happen any time soon. We all LOVE what we do and MY FRIENDS AND I is such a fun store, we'd miss it and seeing all of you.
We will be closed Sunday for Easter, but if you come on Saturday you'll see that some of our Easter stuff will be on sale. If it's not marked down on the tag, it will be 25% off but there will be some stuff marked down more than that.
Have a happy Easter!
