042524 Finally, A Kid Came Home To Visit & New Arrivals!


Happy Thursday!  I sent out an email last Friday instead of Thursday and many of you missed it because it wasn’t our regular day.  If you would like to see our new arrivals and read more about the wonderful celebration of life for Ron Harrington, Val’s husband, you can access it here. 

Speaking of new arrivals, I think it is time for me to share that my kids love to make fun of me.  What child doesn’t want to tease their parents? and I know it is all in good fun.

So, even though Emma (my son’s girlfriend) isn’t an actual “sweet child of mine”, I do hope that someday she becomes my daughter-in-law.

Apparently, from what I hear through the grapevine, Emma loves to rib me for my emails.  She is on the test list (which I may take her off of in the near future LOL) and every time one crosses her in-box she says “AND NEW ARRIVALS!”

Now it is my turn to make fun of Emma, here she is in Vegas with strangely creepy LONG fingers.  BAM!

But back to the store, I am pleased to announce that Lynn’s is offering  a design service to give any room in your home a new look!.  After all, our logo is Decorate with Heart.  Susan & I have our first client and can’t wait to share our before and after photos with you soon.

Here is more info about the service.

Do you have a space in your home that needs a refresh or a bit of rearranging?  Some ideas….

Under the stairs
A focal wall (amazing how one wall redo can change a room)
The wall behind your bed…we even have heaboards
Unused space
A corner
A Kitchen nook
A small office area

Susan Wheelan and I will come out for a 30 minute consult for a flat $50 fee within Ventura.  We will design a plan and will return and stage your project with items from your home, the store and others we source.  You get to live with the design for 24 hours and may purchase what works for you at the item price plus a 20% service fee.  You are under no obligation to purchase anything.

In addition to utilizing some of your existing decor, imagine how amazing some new throw pillows, throw blankets, art, decor, rugs and lamps can do to refresh a tired area of your home.

This is a service designed to be fun for all with the end result being a refreshed and beautiful space!  Please email, call or come in the store to schedule your consultation!  Remember this is a trial and we are only taking a few clients to start.

A little background about Susan Wheelan.  She worked for Pennsylvania House Furniture for over 5 years as a design consultant and Top Producer.  After Pennsylvania House (OMG, I almost wrote Transylvania House LOL), she worked 15 years as a designer for a prestigious home builder responsible for assisting clients in every aspect of building a home.

In addition, she has designed over 21 model homes.  You have most likely seen her work in the store…she is AMAZING!

Susan and I will be working our magic at our first client’s home next Tuesday so watch for the before and after photos in my email next Thursday.  Soooo much fun!

Here is a photo of Susan and me at our “super secret design source” finding fresh items for the store and our design clients!

We sold the COOLEST piece ever on Layaway this past month.  Layaway? you may be asking.  Yes, we do offer short term layaway on our pieces.  This way you can have some extra time to finance those pieces you love without losing out on them to another buyer.

We ask for 20% down and that the balance is paid off within 30 days.  Here is Micheal with his new (yet vintage) killer TELEFUNKEN PHONOVOX record player.  What a great find!  Micheal’s grandfather wrote the theme song for Gunsmoke…how cool is that?

Guess who came home to visit me yesterday?  Indiana Elizabeth!  I haven’t seen her in ages so it was soooooo much fun!  Here is a fun photo of us from our Grand Reopening this past March 1st!

Back to store news, The eBay in person course for this Sunday has been rescheduled to Sunday, April 28th from 2 to 6 pm.   We only have 1 spot left…so sign up soon if you are interested.

This is a short 4 hour class and you will leave with an item or 2  listed on eBay.  You will also learn some of the most important things to know and do when selling on eBay.

I will be sending some lessons to you by email in the days leading up to the course so that we are all on the same page.

To be eligible to take this class, you must be computer savvy and own a laptop which you will bring to the class.  You will also bring several items to list!

Space is limited and the price is $297 and you will receive a goodie bag.  Fun Fun!

It will be a blast and I am so excited to get back into teaching others how to make extra money from home. Please email me with any questions. Space is limited so here is a link to sign up.

It will be modeled after my 6 week on-line Six Step Course, but since it is in person you will still get the same benefits. And yes, that is a really OLD photo of me!

Here is a testimonial from Val that she posted on Insta…..”Thanks for the great class, Lynn!!  I came in feeling totally intimidated about eBay and left with a feeling of accomplishment and a path forward.  Love the swag bag with all those great tools for success”

And then one from Nicole, “Good Morning Lynn!  I had such a great time at the class yesterday!!  Thank you so much for helping us get started with eBay!  You are a wealth of knowledge!!”  And Nicole has already sold 4 items!

We are so grateful for all the support from our incredible community as we embark on this new chapter! Thank you for your LOVE. ❤️

Many people still think we are closed, so please help spread the word that we are here.  It is not a GIVEN that we will be able to remain open.

We are taking it day by day and month by month.  So, if you are one of those customers that thinks they can always stop in, that may not be the case.  Thank you for your support Today!

Because things are still so tough, my son and Val suggested that I start a Ko-fi account (Ko-fi helps artists, writers, etc continue their passion) and I put it off, because that is just not who I am, but I finally gave in.  LOL.  Here is a link if you are interested to learn more and thank you all for being my biggest supporters!  Lynn

In better news, my darling nephew turned 18 years old this past Tuesday.  CRAZY!  He will always be one of the “little boys” as we call him and his brother Kai.  Happy Birthday Z!  Here is to a great year as you pick your college and embark on life after high school soon!  We LOVE you!

Thanks for reading my ezines!  I appreciate it….as always!
