NO October Open Studio

NO Open Studio for October

I'm sorry to announce that we are canceling our October Open Studio.  With Fall and the Christmas being the biggest candle season, we have decided not to wait until the first of the year to increase the size of the candle studio.

It's become more important for Erin to have a larger place to work than to have shop space here at the studio.

We will be open again in November and December. Please watch our FB page for dates.

I know some of you wanted some things still left under the shed...please let me know when you want to stop by and get them. I'll be most happy to meet with you at your convenience!

Thank you for your support over the years and for your continued support for Erin!

August Open Studio at the Junk Ranch

Meet Frank and Annie...

...our version of Elf on a Shelf

These are two of my favorites from my vintage doll collection. Each time I dust all of those sweet little faces I imagine their stories. I've named this couple Frank Butler and Annie Oakley...as children. I have to wonder what happened to their little toy pistols. I feel almost sure someone's little brother absconded with them and probably traded them for a couple of marbles or half of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich!

Today, Frank and Annie are excited about our Open Studio next Saturday, August 13th from 10 to 4.

Annie loves our candles and is bringing the wagon to stock up on the last of the summer candles to enjoy until it's officially Pumpkin Season! All of our summer fragrances are 20% off. She's also happy that Frank loves shopping at the Ranch.

Frank used to believe that Annie only asked him to come along to carry or load the heavy stuff! Now, you'll find him in the masculine candle and artisan soap sections buying for himself. Real men love candles and good smelling soap!

Along with our boutique items, we have vintage and artisan made pieces for your home. We're introducing a new artist this month, our own Haley Shuler. She's been very busy this summer and you're going to love her trays and ladders.

If you like DIY, we have some project pieces available and several crates full of salvaged junk for you own creations.

Remember, if you need gifts we not only have great gift items, we've got gift bags, boxes and note cards right here that you can personalize with our stamps. It's a fun little area where kids, especially, love to get creative!

Watch our FB page this week for a few sneak peeks...just a few! Pictures never do justice to actually seeing, or smelling in person!

Thanks so much for supporting our small business! We know you can get better deals at the big box stores but by shopping local, you're also supporting dreams, families and your own community! You're getting something made with love and we love to give back to our community as well with a portion of our profits.

Have a great week! We hope to see you soon.

Open by Appointment

Well, our little fella took his own sweet time getting here, but he's here!! He finally arrived at 1:03 am Wednesday morning. Needless to say we are elated and already completely in love!

Baby G, his mom and dad are all home, doing well and getting settled.

We want to take a while to get to know our newest little family member before we even begin to think about next sale...which will come up quick August 13th...so from this point on we'll be open by appointment only until our sale dates. We're always happy to accomodate if we can. Generally, customers stop by after work or weekends...and that's perfectly fine. We've done it this way for years!...so don't hesitate to call or text. 336-905-0386

July Schedule and Future Sale Dates

Thank you all so much for supporting us during our transition time and for coming all the way out here weekdays this summer to get your candle fix!! June was a really good month...even the day when we had a snake in the studio bathroom!

As some of you already know, this month we're expecting our first grandbaby. Since we never know exactly when these little boogers are going to make their grand entrance, we're keeping our July studio schedule open to change. Until anything changes we'll continue to open Wednesdays and Thursdays excluding the week of the 4th.  Please check our Facebook page or call before coming out this month.

Yesterday we sat down with our calendar and penciled in our sale dates for the rest of the year. Beginning in August we'll open once a month and still as always, by appointment for those that like to stop by after their workday or a lunch hour.

We hope you'll go ahead and save the dates on your own calendar!

See you soon!

Angie and Erin

New at the Ranch - Antique chairs, typewriters and a red metal high chair

I know you must be wondering if I still have any antiques or vintage treasures among the handmade...I have a few really fun things actually!

How about this adorable red vintage high chair? This would be perfect in your country kitchen or a porch as a fern stand. It's so cute, I'm having a hard time not keeping it!

New at the Ranch...Hand Stenciled Wall Art and Summer Limited Edition Candles

These doors are old, old! They're handmade and were from the base of an old pie safe that we got at auction several years ago. The base was too far gone to repair but we saved the doors and a few of the boards off the back.

I looked for just the right stencils and early this spring, I found them!
