Hoping you all had a wonderful Holiday season.
      A big thank you to all our wonderful customers that made this year a success. We truly appreciate you and look forward to serving you in the coming year. 
       We traditionally take down our Christmas decorations on New Years eve so we can look forward to the New year and move on from the last. I have been organizing my work area in preparation for the new year. We have lots of new items to bring into the store and will begin the transformation this week. There will be several new cupboards ,tables and other furniture pcs.

       In the next week you can still find holiday items for 25% off at the "Barn"

Only 4 days till Christmas, Are you all ready?

     It has been a busy month for Colbycottage, between restocking in Eugene and going back and forth to Portland to restock at the Monticello, we have been really on the move. Now we are enjoying preparations at home and all the fun that comes with that.
      If you are one that is still searching for gifts, stocking stuffers, decorations or even a cupboard to put them in, there are still lots of items to choose from at both Glory Days Antiques and the Coburg Antique mall.
     If you are heading out to GloryDays Antique mall, we have everything 20% off now till Christmas. Hoping that will make it a little funner to shop.

    And most importantly we wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and hope you can  slow down and take time to appreciate this time of year when we celebrate our Saviors birth.

Time out for a visit to the Farm

green pumpkins

the big decision

Came home and made apple pies

We have been working away on all kinds of items for both store locations. Today we thought we should break for our annual trip to the pumpkin patch. We do this every year and try to take advantage of the few beautiful sunny days in October. We had a wonderful day , we rode the hay ride through the fields, ate yummy cobbler, picked apples and as always took lots of pictures. If this isn't something you do , I encourage you to take time to enjoy the local farms. 
We have just brought in lots more Rosehip bundles  at both the "Barn" location and out at Coburg.
