Happy Spring to everyone! I don’t know about you, but it could not have started sooner. I am sure all of you are excited to begin the 2013 buying season! Welcome back to garage sales, outdoor auctions, and flea markets. We are certainly looking forward to the great things you all will bring in.
Let me take this opportunity to thank you for all your hard work and dedication. You are the reason our store is such a great success. Your creativity shines as guests wind around and find those treasures you have worked so hard to find, clean, restore, and replace. Let this spring season give you renewed enthusiasm for what we do and help to pull us all out of an especially hard winter.
There are a number of things that the Staff at S.A.M are excited about, much of it you will find in the newsletter this month.
Let me highlight a few….
• This month you will see our new awnings go up on the outside of the building! We are looking forward to our new “bling.” They will be practical and complimentary to our curb appeal. We have been very pleased with our service from United Sign and Awning for this project. (Awnings pictured above)
• Mom and I are definitely making some progress upstairs! We will be offering a new showroom for our guests that will illustrate how to incorporate new furniture with antique/vintage furniture and accessories. Our motto for the space is…”See how we merge the comforts of today with the beauty of yesterday!” Guests will be able to order new furniture through American Wholesale Furniture and purchase one-of-a-kind pieces off the showroom floor. We are very pleased with the results thus far. We hope you enjoy it as well. We will have a “soft opening” of the upstairs the first week in May with a “grand opening” to follow.
• Don’t forget to sign up for the May sale (2nd weekend ). It is such a fun weekend and we would hate for anyone to miss out on a great selling opportunity!
• The Southport Street Fair is May 4th from 11-5. It is always a wonderful way for families to spend a Saturday. Come show your support for our city and have some fun!
Thank you so much for taking the time to read my column. Mom and I wish each of you all the best the spring will bring and look forward to an awesome summer with you!!
