Just returned from the Connecticut Flower Show, see for information, or next for information on tickets, vendors, parking and gardens. The St. Patty’s Day Parade will take place on Sunday (the last day of the show) right in South Boston and next to the venue for the flower show. A great weekend to be in South Boston, see the sights, enjoy the parade and see the show. Cause there’s only three days till spring on St. Patty’s Day. See us in Booth 303 just to the left of the main entrance, the booth with all the lights.

Today is Fat Tuesday and tomorrow begins Lent, so Spring is coming and the flowers will start popping. Posting some flowers to rush the process.

Someone called and asked what does it mean to bring “SOAP” well it’s a washday and those items in the washtub will be up for trade, sale or discount, trade means you can bring “SOAP” and trade for those items (sometimes) odd pieces, broken snowmen, unfinished products (no time to complete) or Christmas Candies on Sale. So you wash and we wash. Come with a tub, come in costume, or just come and wring your hands. Let’s see what will come out in the wash.

Remember to check out our facebook page for additional details.

January 18 thru 20. WASH….WASH

A lady from the south (known as my mother in law) always referred to George’s birthday as the above.  Even when she died at the age of 90, she would talk about Washington, DC, area where she was brought up and would refer to George’s birthday as George Birthington’s Washday.

As this is a holiday we have decided to make this weekend a SunRise Event and get out the wash.  We have the old wash tubs from the barn (you know the one’s on wheels) which we will fill.

Coming for the WASH - standing in line.

So join us on January 18 – 20 and see what comes out in the wash.

Selected items from the attic, selected and hidden junk from the workrooms, candy left over from Christmas, and maybe some treat gags (bags) from Halloween.  So bring your soap, or your pennies and hope for no snow.
