Look at this. Buttons to spell out BOO and take a look at the sweet bow. I will be making a copy of this picture and making a few bags of black buttons to sell at shop, just enough to do this little project. Probably $2.00 or 3.00 for the bag. But I will give away 10 bags of black buttons to the first 10 who email me and say they want some. If you win you can pick them up at your convenience any time in Sept. Your name will be on a bag. More FUN from MY FRIENDS AND I!

Antique Fair over for another year. Whew!
It was really tiring, but really fun too.
So many nice people coming in the shop all day long and lots of really nice comments about MY FRIENDS AND I. We heard "this is my favorite shop" several times during the day, and truthfully that's part of what keeps us going year after year. All you great customers, who now seem more like old friends. THANKS for supporting us!

Aren't these pumpkins cute? Just pile em' up and add some masks. FUN! I personally like the Monkey. Looks vintage to me but I haven't bought costumes for many years, so could be new. I may have to hunt some up to do this.

We're tired already and it's not even Sunday yet. We have been poking stuff in every little space all week.
Here's a little write up I found about tomorrow, and really folks the Pancake breakfast is here in the early a.m. too.

The pancake breakfast is also back, beginning bright and early as vendors arrive to set up shop at 5 a.m. "The Dawn Breakers Lions Club has been putting on the breakfast for about 20 years. People show up around 4-5 a.m. with flashlights to start shopping,"

The Big Day Is Almost Here

It's hard to believe that it's Antique Fair and Flea Market time again. Where has the year gone? It's happening this Sunday in Niles 6:00 Am to 4:00 Pm.

The day is really tiring for all of us, but it's a really fun exciting day too.

*MY FRIENDS AND I* hope if you come to town you'll stop in and say hello and of course check out all the cute Halloween goodies we've been bringing in.

Boo to You!

Here's a teaser picture for you. Halloween is arriving in the shop. I know, I know, it's early, but it's too cute to keep boxed up for another week or two. Things will be coming in pretty steady in the next week or two.

P.S. I post pictures on facebook too. If you haven't liked us on Facebook yet click the link, top left. We'd like more friends on Facebook..................Pretty please!

Hard to believe that summer's almost over and the kids will be going back to school.
It also means that the free concerts are coming to a end. There's only a few more left.
Don't let summer go by without coming to Niles for a concert. This Sunday's is 1-4.
As you can see from the picture not too big of a crowd and plenty of room to sit.

P.S. There's some early Halloween in the shop!
