Santa comes in less than three weeks!
...and I've barely begun to shop! I'm one who normally has most of her shopping, if not all of it, finished before now so excuse me while I freak out. AAAAGHH! (Deep breath...) I feel like Scarlett O'Hara; I'll think about that tomorrow. Nope, I wouldn't make a good Scarlett. I'll finish this post and as I'm pricing more shop items, will think about how I will accomplish Christmas in time for Christmas. Speaking of shop items, the Corner Nest had its first Open House this past weekend. I was there Saturday to witness literally hoards of people. It was almost like someone had moved the Bristol Raceway crowd into Elizabethton. Sunday was apparently just as busy so I spent Monday rearranging and adding more items. I have more glassware in storage that needs to be washed, tagged etc. - part of my "to do" list for today. Tomorrow I'll be in Elizabethton again to replenish both our shops before the weekend. Here's a shot of the main Christmas tree in the front of the store. I don't know how tall it is (20 ft, maybe?) but I can guarantee you that it's BIG! Of course, I took some "before" pictures. Most were taken before the doors opened to the Open House crowd so a lot of what you will see in the link below is already sold; however, if you see anything that you seriously want to inquire about in any of the booths, I'll see if it's still available and what the price is. Here's the photo link: http://home-and-garden.webshots.com/album/561659490MegBAj The following two pictures are of our third spot there.
