The Many Colors of Fall!

Yes its that time of year where you will see all the gorgeous colors of fall. One thing about living in the mountains is you get a real eyeful. Yellow Oaks, Red Oaks and so many more different trees. Of course I don't know the names of the trees just a few of them, but they are all so beautiful and colorful.

Indiana Egg Plate

Amber is a lovely color like this plate from the Indiana Glass Co.

This is the best time of the year to drive along the riverbanks, highways, streams and bridges just to look at the magnigficant colors. They come fast and go fast and once they are gone you know its winter. But I want to think about the Autumn because of the colors and what I like most.

Rose Bundt Cake Pan

Look at this beautiful red in the Rose Cake Pan this is seen on so many of the trees here!

The fun part (not really) is raking or even diving into the piles which the kids like to do. Thousands and thousands of leaves. What do I so with them? glad you asked, we blow them back into the woods where they will compost into the ground sort of like giving them back to nourish the earth!

Autumn Leaves

Now is the time to make Pumpkin Pies and Hot Apple Cider for those cool nights, and of course this is a lovely color color Pumpkin though it is a lighter shade it is still a lovely hue of orange!

Salt & Pepper Shakers
This is just a small sample of our Autumn here in Pennsylvania and it lasts for just a few short weeks and then the Snow comes! Later for that please :)

September is Here

Posted September 3, 2010 by Out-Of-The-Attic-2u

Well it seems Sept started off very hot here in PA, which is unexpected for us. We usually have cooler days and very cool nights by this time. It is a pleasure though for me to still be able to enjoy the warm hot days cause soon the long and cold winter will be upon us.

This is a time now to start getting ready for the holidays which are just around the corner. So are you all getting ready? If so what are you doing to make this a good selling time for you. I know listing more is important, getting your links out there are important, sending your buyers newsletters are important, but you tell me what is the most important part of our business to bring in the customer to buy our goods when everyone else just about has the same goods.

Do you think lower prices, free shipping, or even adding free gifts are a good idea? Why not share what you do and what works for you so that others can learn also. I already gave my ideas and there are a lot of options out there; for instance here is one more; swap business cards and flyers to help promote each other, also if you don't have the item and you know that someone else has it, tell the buyer and give the buyer the webstore that has it.

Hope I got your brain working and hopefully you all will share. Have a blessed day and enjoy the season cause soon it will be cold. brrrrrrrrrrr!
I decided to add Pierre the Poodle's picture cause I love to look at him :)
