It may have been hard to tell over the weekend, but we have moved into the month of March. Imagine that. The third month of 2013 is upon us. Where does the time go? Everybody knows the beginning of March can only mean one thing.
No, I’m not talking about basketball tournaments. It means the official start of spring is only a few days away! A few whirly snowflakes here and there notwithstanding, signs of spring are starting to emerge. It’s getting light a little earlier and dark a little later, for one. The daffodils in my backyard have come up, although I think that swirly snow must have surely confused the dickens out of them.
Basketball and equinoxes aside, March is packed with events this year. Saint Patrick’s Day is coming up in just a couple of weeks. If you’re looking to decorate for your party, there are just about always a few pieces of green glass scattered here and there through the various booths at YesterNook.
Easter is coming early this year, falling on March 31. That makes it a just barely a March event, but “barely” certainly counts! There are always lots of high-quality, unique baskets in the store, if you want to try something different this year. You’ll probably find a few eggs and bunnies around, too. Don’t forget to look at some of the vintage hats and purses when thinking about your Easter outfit. Who knows what you’ll find? Remember our selection changes every day.
For many, Easter is primarily a spiritual celebration. Did you know that we have a few vendors who regularly carry vintage religious items? Rosaries, devotionals, crucifixes, Last Supper scenes, Madonnas, Pieta scenes, prayer books, Bibles, hymnals, holy cards and other assorted religious articles can be found throughout the store. If you’re looking for a booth that carries some of these items, ask at the register.
Part of the excitement of spring comes from being able to spend more time outside again, after being cooped up all winter. Is your front yard, backyard, or deck ready? Do they need some sprucing up? Are you starting to plan your flower beds and other planting? Be sure to check Godfrey’s Garage next time you come in. There are already several items of patio furniture out there, and more are sure to come. You might also find different kinds of pots, plant stands, and planters. It’s not unheard of for us to have concrete figures for the yard from time to time! Come in and see what we have that might spruce up your surroundings!
We’re glad that YesterNook was there to provide you with a pick-me-up through the winter. We hope that we will continue to see all of you regularly during the spring as well. We love it when our friends come to visit. Remember that there are over 30 vendors in the store, and all of them bring in new items regularly. That means the store changes practically from day to day! Our hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook for daily updates and photos of new merchandise!
