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,
Cindy Wobbe & Diane Marti
Warm greetings to you this morning! As usual, things are bustling here in the shop. Diane is busy preparing delicious a menu of lunch specials for the coming week (including a to-die-for chocolate cheesecake), and the gang is hard at work moving several new items of estate furniture into the shop as well as setting up for our upcoming estate sale this Friday and Saturday here in Florence. Never a dull moment around here!
Upcoming Sale … this Friday & Saturday, our team will be conducting a complete home liquidation at 04878 Sea Pine off Rhododendron Drive in Florence on behalf of Marge & Joe Temple.
