From Arthur to Arcola...

OK, the answer to the question some of you are asking is "Yes" -- we did decide to leave the Gathering on the Prairie show in Arthur even though we had enjoyed three great years there and met lots of new friends. But the opportunity to be a part of Country Spirit in Arcola was just too good to pass up! Wait until you see the show and then you'll understand!

We wish all of our friends back at the Gathering the best of luck and hope that all of our customers will enjoy the now bigger and better chance to shop THREE shows in Amish Country twice a year!

Two of the shows are open Friday night as well as Saturday and you can buy advance tickets for both shows, both days if you buy them now -- check out the details on the Country Spirit website! ( If you've never been on Friday night, give it a try. It's a really festive and fun atomosphere that everyone seems to really enjoy.

Even if you don't buy the advance ticket for Country Spirit and the Homesteaders on the Prairie show, your admission to the Friday night festivities at Country Spirit is good for both days so you can always come back and see what goodies the dealers have brought out on Saturday.

Hotel rooms are going fast so get yours now if you're planning of making a weekend out of the shows and all the good antiquing down in Amish country!

Country Spirit

We've been busy working to put together a really wonderful group of exhibitors for the Country Spirit Antique Show & Sale in Arcola on March 4 and 5. It's going to be a great show full of wonderful country antiques, primitives and early Americana. Come shop Friday evening or Saturday -- there will be a great selection available whenever you shop. Details are unfolding fast so watch the Country Spirit site for news updates. (Our vendor list will be posted very soon -- can't wait for you to see who's joining us!!!) And don't forget to "like" the show on Facebook (just search "Country Spirit Antique Show" on Facebook).

The show must go on but so does the shop! It's just too darn cold these days to even think of an open house at ForeverMore. But we're going to give you an opportunity to shop from the warmth and comfort of your own home and we're putting together some primitives, some Valentines items, and some things to get you to "think spring". If you're on our email list, you'll get details soon. If not, then it's not too late to join the list! Just drop us a line at and let us know you want to be on the email list. It's that simple!
