The First Day Of Flawless

Welcome to my blog!  I've been wanting to start one for a long time and have been recently inspired by a number of bloggers who have requested to review Aunt Sadie's Candles on their blog and offer some type of giveaway.  I haven't quite wrapped my mind around what this blog will include, but I think mostly it'll be product reviews, restaurant and store reviews and hints and tips of fun things I found out and about in my travels.  The picture I posted is actually my apartment in Boston.  It was featured in the Boston Globe Magazine about 3 weeks ago and also on a great website called http://www.insidesource.com/.  As you can tell, I LOVE Adirondack, Cabin and Camp Antiques!  I've been collecting since I was 7 years old and have amassed a lot of stuff!  My Mom and Dad own an antique shop in Northern Vermont and my mom still finds amazing stuff that of course I have first dibs on!  The shop is a great place for dealers to shop because her prices remain very reasonable and much of what she finds is fresh to the market.  She doesn't have a website so you have to go visit her directly and she's primarily open from May - October, although part of the shop remains up all year long. 

I also have a booth at the RI Antiques Mall in Pawtucket, RI.  The picture to the right was actually taken by another blogger (Milk and Honey Group) when she did a review on the Antiques Mall and my booth in particular.  I have to say it's one of the nicest group shops I've visited or been in.  Owners Rae and Scott do an amazing job keeping the over 200 dealers up-to-date on what's selling, what's not selling, what's being requested and how to make our booth profitable.  The shop has an great array of merchandise and while it's not all my taste, I have to say it's one of the most comprehensive group shops I've visited and I've been doing so for over 40 years.  If you're a dealer looking for a new spot to showcase merchandise or a shopper, this is a must stop for you.

So there you have it...my first post.  I hope you enjoyed reading and will sign up to follow the blog.  I'm just getting my feet wet, but will be adding giveaways, product reviews and discounts from different manufacturers.  I have a ton of resources and can't wait to share them with you (except those top secret ones that get divulged to no one!).  Thanks for reading.  Gary
