Summer Home Show...

We're taking our
Summer Home Show
on the road! 

Saturday, July 20th 10-6
Sunday, July 21st 11-5

Usually we set up a tent behind the shop
to house more Rescued Furniture
& larger pieces than our 400 sq. feet
building can hold but, with temperatures
reaching 104 last year, 95 & rain the year before and paint bubbling on the furniture we decided to find a larger space with a 
solid roof & air conditioning to host
our furniture show!

The Bancroft Street Market
is the place!

 2701 S. 10th St.
Omaha NE 
{just North of the Zoo}

The "Mr." is hard at work rescuing furniture!  
Watch for some of the before pictures
here on the blog & on Facebook!
{sorry, no early sales... we wouldn't want
to disappoint those who drive down to see us!}

We hope you'll take a road trip and
come and see us! We'll have the
sweet tea chillin'!

A Special Visit...

Yesterday I opened the store especially for a group of Grannies... 
Gallivanting Grannies from the Country Register! 
I wish I would of taken pictures! They were a lot of fun! Marie, 
lives here in NE and is the mother of Country Register's Publisher 
and Art Director, Lolly Konecky. Marie and her friends 
(the Gallevanting Grannies, plus one Granddaughter... a Grannie in training!) 
travel Nebraska visiting small towns and then writing about their 
experiences for a continuing feature in the Country Register Newspaper. 

I have been advertising in the Country Register for many, many years 
and it is the one print ad that I do that I believe really works! 
For small town shops, especially ones that have mixed merchandise 
of a little old, new, handmade it is a great advertising resource! 
I believe they have distribution in most states! If you have a specialty 
shop and are looking for a reasonable way to advertise
check out the Country Register and tell them The Whistle Stop sent ya!

Shopkeeper & Friends Antique & Artisan Market... June 3013

It was June 1st and and it was cold,
windy, & rainy. Not what we hoped for!
Radar showed a big band of heavy rain
coming and so most of the vendors
packed up to go home around 1:30.
Then wouldn't you know... it stopped raining.
Go figure! 
That's the risk with outdoor shows! 

Here are a few pictures from our market.
There are more on fb. Sorry, my website
is still on the blink so I can't load any there.

If you able to come to our outdoor market 
we thank you!
For those who couldn't thanks for stopping 
here to take a look!

Enjoy your day!
