Summer days, drifting away...

What a crazy few months it has been!  We have seemed to be neglecting our poor website!  So sorry!  I thought I'd drop in and give a quick update and preview what's to come.  Babies being born, markets being had, perilous adventures in the South... whew, we're exhausted!!!

Baby I'm amazed...

First things first, Sheila had her baby!  "Little" Simone came in at a measly 10 pounds and 5 ounces!  Yeah, that's not a typo... They are both doing great!  She has even, at the tender age of less than a month old, entered into the world of modeling by becoming our first Baby Begonia's model!  She did a fabulous job ~ no diva here!  Sheila returned to work at the beginning of this month with much fanfare... well a Facebook post, but we are ecstatic to have her back!

High-ho, high-ho, it's off to the market we go...

The 3 French Hens Markets have been truly amazing this year ~ even when we have torrential downpours!!!  Rain or shine people! The remaining schedule for this year is:
  • August 9th ~ 8 am to 2 pm at the I&M Canal Port
  • September 13th ~ 8 am to 2 pm at the I&M Canal Port
  • October 11th ~ 8 am to 2 pm at the I&M Canal Port
  • November 14th and 15th ~ Holiday Market at the Grundy County Fairgrounds
    • Friday 4-10 pm & Saturday 9 am to 4 pm.
Be sure to check them out.  There are over 130 vendors and always new treasures to be found! Also, our store has extended hours, opening at 8:30 am till 5 pm on market days!  We always try to debut a new items at the markets so be sure to watch Facebook to get a sneak peek on the Friday before the market!

Sheila and Jess went down to Georgia, looking for some fabulous deals...

We just returned from Atlanta last week and boy do we have a lot of fabulous items coming ~ including some new lines:
  • Faceplant ~ Amazing, spa quality good for rest and relaxation!  300 count, 100% cotton pillowcases with some of our popular sayings on them.  Washable cotton face wipes with inspirational sayings that are perfect for woman of all ages!  Lastly, there's the sleep mask with adjustable strap!  It stays put without cutting into your head.  These make great gifts!
  • Jolie Headbands and Belts ~ These are truly beautiful pieces that are handcrafted here in the USA!
  • Bootights ~ I can't wait for these to come in!  They are bootsocks that have a thick athletic sock at the bottom!  No need wear socks with your bootcuffs any more!  But don't worry... we'll still have bootcuffs for those who prefer them! (Coming Soon)

We believe in make believe...

We've also expanded our Baby Begonia's section!  More clothes, gifts, and toys for the little ones!  There's so many new items that I don't even know where to begin!  Oh wait.... I know ~ We are expanding to include BOY CLOTHES!  We've had so many requests and have searched far and wide for cute, affordable items and at last we found it!  It's a limited run as we are just testing it out to see how it goes... Be sure to watch our Facebook page to see when they come in to Ruby's!

It's beginning to look a lot like cocktails...

Here's where you may have to brace yourself ~ can you believe that Halloween is only 3 months away?  Christmas is in less than 5 months?!?!  Where has the year gone... seriously? 

Now that I have you panicking and possibly cursing me... don't worry!  We have so many decorations coming in for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, even Valentines, and wait, what... Easter, too!  Not to mention great gifts and outfits for any party, gathering, or shindig to may be hosting or reveling at! 

That's all for now folks...
