Back to School !!!

There are small parties happening in quiet houses across the country this time of year. Mothers everywhere are celebrating their children going back to school! I personally take the day off, partialy to get my three children ready for school, take their pictures by the front door, and drive them to school, but mostly for the bliss that is a quiet house when I return. I encourage moms everywhere to ignore their dishes and laundry for the day, curl up on the sofa with a good book, and bask in the silence.

Here at the store we salute the back to school season with a fun little display in the center of the store. This year we went for a back to campas look. Betsy and I had a blast cleaning, and displaying a collection of tennis trophy's that one of the vendors brought in. We spent considerable time speculating on what they could be used for. We also have a fun collection of letters from vintage letterman jackets, globes, rulers, and year books. So if you are one of those mom's with a little more free time on your hands since your kido's are back in school come in and check it out.

All the best,
Rachel & Colette

Bring On The Tourists!

One of the best things about the summers here in Montana is all the lovely tourists we get into the shop!
I really enjoy finding out where everyone has traveled from, where they're going, and being part of their Montana experiences. For example, we have pictured here Langley Danowitz. Langley is here from New York City, visiting her daughter! She came in and tried her hand at being a cowgirl, and looked so darling in our red hat, I had to snap a photo of her.

We've had visitors from as far away as Israel and Italy, and as close by as Great Falls.
We encourage them to sign the guest book and take a little piece of Montana home with them, from our shop!

So if you happen to be traveling, swing in and say hi!

All the Best,
Rachel, Colette and Betsy

What would you do with this? We bought the coolest wire basket thing on wheels at The Vintage Barn Show, and we would like to know what you would use it for? In this picture it is holding some fabulous aqua and green pillows, which made me think it would work really well in a family room holding throw blankets and pillows. I can also see it in a bathroom with rolled towels in it.

Those are some of our ideas, so what would you do? Let us know.

All the Best,
Colette and Rachel
