Primitive Harvest in Ohio

Next up for us is Susan Hart's great show in Ohio called Primitive Harvest. It's at the Darke County Fairgrounds in Greenville, OH next Saturday, Oct. 6. It's a primitives show with a nice mix of antiques and quality handmades. Live music and lots of fun. If you're close enough to make the trip, I promise you an enjoyable time at the show. Stop in and see us! (If you're too far away, just watch for pics. Here and on our Facebook page.)

New spring schedule,

After a few years of doing several local shows in the spring, we are making a change and heading to Iowa for a show on April 1. Any of you hard core antiquers who haven't been to the Cedar Rapids shows ought to consider a road trip to the Midwest Antiques & Arts Show and the Collectors' Eye show, held at the same location on the same day. You will find tons of great shops up in Cedar Rapids and The Amana Colonies (a wonderful destination themselves). Stop in Bishop Hill on the way up for some pie, some primitives and a lovely inn. Then stop in and say hi at our booth in the Midwest show. Meanwhile, if you are staying closer to home, your only chance to shop with ForeverMore this spring will be at our Spring Open House in Georgetown on April 20-22. Watch your mail for details!

Country Spirit - what fun!

It was good to see quite a few of our ForeverMore friends at the Country Spirit Show in Arcola last weekend. We started setting up the show on Wednesday and the doors opened Friday evening at 5:00.
Meanwhile, the wind blew, the storms raged...our thoughts were with the folks whose homes were in the direct path.
But the show did go on. When all was said and done, we had a record crowd. Here are a couple of photos of the ForeverMore booth for those of you who missed it.

On March 2 & 3, we will be hosting dealer friends from Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Iowa, Arkansas, Michigan, Tennessee, Ohio & Virginia at the Arcola Center during a busy weekend of shows and shopping in Central Illinois Amish Country. If you follow the show's FaceBook page, you'll get a sneak peek at some of the items the dealers - including ForeverMore - will be offering at the show. It's going to be fun so mark your calendars now and plan to join us in Arcola!
