Greetings, mes amies!
Greetings! It’s a beautiful Monday morning here on the Oregon Coast! Here’s a quick run-down on this week’s happenings in Mon Ami Land.
TWO ESTATE SALES! This coming Friday & Saturday, May 1&2, my team will be conducting two estate sales – one in Idylwood and the other in Seawatch, both a short distance from each other on Rhododendron Drive. I’ll be sending out a web album on Wednesday. Both homes are full of lovely and useful items – furniture, beautiful crystal and glassware, beds, gardening tools, outdoor furniture, civil war books …. stay tuned!
Mother’s Day High Tea … Saturday, May 9, seatings at 11am and 1pm. Diane is putting together a spectacular menu for this annual event. Some of you folks have been attending this tea since we started it in 1999 – a 17 year tradition! I keep saying that one of these days I’m going to put together a picture album of all our tea guests through the years. We hope you can plan to attend this very special event. Rumor has it that Diane is planning a showstopping grand finale dessert …. Reserve your table at 541-997-9234!

And finally, tickets are now available at the FEC box office for this year’s Rhody Court Showcase. I’ve had the great pleasure of working with the senior court boys and girls for the last several months and can promise you that they’re going to be putting on a pretty doggone spectacular show! It’s Wednesday, May 6, at 6:30 p.m. This year’s Rhody Festival is in its 108th year, and what a wonderful tradition it is. We’d love to see a packed house for our Rhody Court!
Wishing you a wonderful week filled with Grace & Plenty,

Greetings! It’s another busy, bustling week ahead at Mon Ami and Cindy Wobbe Estate Sales. Diane is preparing some delicious lunch specials (check out the Shrimp Melt on Tuesday and the Spinach Frittata on Thursday) and my estate sales team is working overtime prepping for another fabulous sale this Friday and Saturday here in Florence. It’s also the beginning of Rhody Court presentations so I’ll be spending the next several weeks escorting our nine amazing senior girls and boys to local civic organizations for introductions. This afternoon, we’re headed to Elderberry Square to visit all of the residents there and hand out homemade cards that each of our kids have made. If you want to watch a miracle happen, just take a bunch of delightful princesses into a memory care unit and watch them hand out hugs and happiness to the residents. Wish I could take a video to share with you – it’s a beautiful thing to watch.
Upcoming Estate Sale: This Friday & Saturday, 9-3, we’ll be in Florentine Estates for a FABULOUS sale. Lots of beautiful treasures in this lovely home, including a Kimball grand piano, queen oak sleigh bed, two refrigerators, washer & dryer, antiques, artwork, bar, a cook’s kitchen full of necessities, and a garage full of stuff we haven’t even begun to tackle! Florentine Estates is a gated community. You will need to line up and enter at the 35th Street entrance (off Hwy. 101) and follow the map the gate attendant hands you (or just follow my signs once you’re in). We are not allowed to post the street address, but you won’t have any trouble finding it. I’ll be sharing a web album in a few days.
