We’ve Got Spring Fever!

Cute Little Owl

We’ve got spring fever at Mini Bazaar and we hope you catch it too!  It may be dreary outside, but I think we may have more “spring” than ever before.  We have filled the store from the rafters to the floor, and are so excited to share it with everyone.  The displays are bulging with spring flowers, greenery, owls, birds, lamps, art and mirrors and accents galore.  The Volume 5 cookbook from  “The Gathering of Friends” has arrived, and we’ve all ready tried some of the new recipes.  Yum!

We really think the snow is going to melt for our opening on:  March 6th  10am-6pm.  This spring show continues, Wednesdays through Saturdays, through April 13th.  10am-6pm

Bazaar bucks are back, of course, and we can’t wait to see everyone!  Grab a friend and come on over to Mini Bazaar.

*note….Just a little FYI …Our son in law, Jason is doing remarkable after his double lung transplant, and they made the trek from North Carolina to Idaho last week.  What a road trip!  We are so thrilled for this miracle in our lives.  They are back in sunny California to get back to optometry school on Monday, the 4th.  Yahoo.



Spring, Easter, and now Mothers Day

Easter came after the first day of spring this year…and we are just starting to feel like we’re having that first day of spring. 
As we have been cleaning and re-arranging the store, we keep finding Easter eggs.  It seems that someone was having their own “Easter Egg Hunt” at Mini Bazaar.  Actually, it’s probably just us, but we just keep finding them.  There is something fun about egg hunts.  I don’t remember participating in egg hunts as a child, but I remember boiling hoards of eggs and coloring them to contribute to the cause when my kids were little.  Then on the Saturday morning before Easter, we’d head to the community park for the hunt.  Egg hunts have evolved since then….now instead of finding chipped up hard boiled eggs, we find plastic eggs filled with candy and sometimes cash.  Fun.
I don’t remember the last time Easter was just two weeks apart from Mothers Day, but here we are.  I haven’t even visited the nursery yet looking at all the beautiful pots for Mothers Day, but I certainly hope to go before this weekend.  That’s one of my favorite things.
We’re almost ready with our Mothers Day/Summer displays at Mini Bazaar, too.  It should be a great weekend!

I’m just sending out our email for this show with coupon’s attached, and even posted on Facebook.   Okay, Mothers Day….ready or not! 
Mini Bazaar hours…Fridays and Saturdays…..May, June, and July  10am-5pm


Is anyone else having trouble writing the year, 2010?  For some reason this one is tough for me.  Anyway, the new 2010 merchandise that we saw at market is great.  We had such a tough time narrowing down what we should get as we’ve found that our eyes are bigger than our store sometimes. 
It just amazes me how fresh the spring colors look to me every spring and the birds….oh my goodness, the birds.  They are showing up everywhere and I just love them.
I’d have to say between the birds, the bags, and the jewelry, it was hard to concentrate on our 2010 Christmas’ orders.  We got the job done, and we’ll be excited for that to arrive later this summer.
Anyway, we are ready to put away the holiday merchandise and get ready for spring.  We’ve had two trucks all ready, so we’d better get moving a little faster.  (it’s just so hard when we’re cold, though)
We open for our 5 week spring show on March 10th.  It’s right around the corner, and like I said, it’s going to be great!
see you in the isles real soon.
