Garage Sales and Raffles and German Shrunks

If you’re planning on coming out for our garage sale fundraiser, you’ll want to know that we’ve moved the date from the weekend of May 18th to the weekend of June 1st. Donations are arriving daily and we know we’re going to have a really great sale! We would love for as many people as possible to help us out with sorting and pricing before the 1st as well as a few folks to run the cash box and do some haggling on the day of the sale. If you’re interested in helping, please contact me via email at

In other exciting news, our raffle tickets arrived today! Here’s a sneak peak picture of the Grand Prize:



This picture doesn’t quite do her justice. I painted her Old White and used Provence on her interior and gave her a clear wax finish. This gal is over TWELVE feet long! She’s valued at $1,895.00 and she could go home to live with you FOREVER if you buy a raffle ticket!*

(The shrunk can currently be viewed at Willowstone Antique Marketplace. It is located in the back of the store, in the hallway near the restrooms.)


Our 1st prize winner will receive a gift arrangement from The Urban Cottage, valued at $200.00.

Our 2nd prize winner will receive a photo shoot and 20 digital downloads from BK Photography, valued at $135.00.

Our 3rd prize winner will receive $40.00 CASH!

If you or someone you know would like to purchase a ticket, please contact me via email. Tickets are $20.00 for one or $100.00 for 6. 

The winning ticket will be randomly drawn at our garage sale on June 1st.

Winner need not be present at drawing.


And, as if all of this weren’t exciting enough for one post, our sweet friends and fellow adoptive parents, the Elliotts will be hosting a fundraiser on the evening of May 25th at Marco’s Pizza. Save the date and look for details to follow!

Finally, friends – keep praying! Together, we can get the boys home by Christmas! (Or, maybe by September 19th when they’ll turn 4… Just sayin’…) 😉
