Moving On.....

Greetings dear friends! I hope this email finds you well and enjoying a "taste" of summer! I think we are all anxious for the summer weather.

The subject line of this note implies what you might be thinking... yes, I am giving up my space at Indulge and closing Buttermilk Junction. It was a difficult and emotional decision but I am confident it was the right one. I am working full time in a job I LOVE and because I don’t have the time/energy required to devote to my shop anymore, it just feels like the right time to move on. My dream was to have my own shop and I did just that and it was an accomplishment that I am proud of.

My remaining store inventory will be going to "American Country" in Keizer... sometimes my web links don’t work so you may have to just manually type this one in to your browser... it's Emily has some great vendors in her shop and (if you live locally) I am sure she would love to meet you, if you haven't been there already.

I have already shut down my website, simply because it would be really hard to fulfill orders at this point. I plan to keep my blog although I have never been very good at keeping it current!! The last day at Indulge will be Friday June 10. It’s business as usual there until the final day, so if you had your eye on something now is the time to snap it up. I also brought in a bunch of new goodies this past week.

If you're worried about where you will get wax melts for your melters, there is at least one other vendor at Indulge carrying them. Or, plan a nice drive to American Country in Keizer to stock up!!

I have loved being there for you these past 5+ years and I have made many friends.. some who have become "forever friends." It's been a pleasure and a privilege to get to know you and help decorate your homes. Somewhere down the road you never know if "The Buttermilk" will pop up again... but for now, I am enjoying having "earned income," being an integral part of an office team and just being a plain ol' consumer again.

I couldn’t have succeeded without the help and love of my husband, my Mom and Dad and my customers. I am ever grateful for you and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Thanks for the memories!!!

~God Bless,

Happy February people! A few days ago the wind was howling, the rain was coming down in buckets and it felt like, we have puffy white clouds, blue sky and sunshine. We've had amazing weather lately, and when the rest of the country has been dealing with snow, sleet, etc. we Oregonians have had dry, mild days. I'm sure the "experts" will be saying we are way behind on rainfall, but honestly - it's been wonderful!


This coming Saturday, February 19th, INDULGE Antiques is holding an after-hours shopping/dining event. From 6pm to 8pm, you can enjoy a dinner menu, pastries and wine AND even better, an additional 10% off storewide!! We are participating in this sale.... be sure to check it out!

New to the shop:

*Silicone dipped light bulbs in both flickering and standard variety

*Battery taper candles with regular and silicone tipped bulbs available in brown, beeswax and red

*Buttered Maple Syrup reed diffusers back in stock

*Real Tallow Berry bundles and a few Easter goodies for your Springtime decorating

Goose Creek jar candle SALE ALERT!

On "in-store special" through the end of the month are Goose Creek jar candles! Goose Creek candles are the best and if you've ever burned or melted one, you already know this. They burn clean down the sides with no wax residue, and smell just as good from the first time you light them until there is a scant 1/4" of wax left in the bottom of the jar. Some of the scents available are Maple Toddy, Orange Vanilla, Cinnamon and my personal fave, Apple Bourbon. All Goose Creek jar candles are 20% off so hurry in for best selection!

Happy February my friends......

It's the end of January and before we know it, Spring will be upon us! Easter seems like it's late this year - April 24th, which gives us plenty of Spring decorating time.

Please make a note that the Buttermilk Junction shop phone number has changed... it's now 541-285-7106. I've updated the website and the blog with the new number. Since I am working full time, you may not reach me when you call... but if you leave a message I'm happy to return your call. As always, you are more than welcome to call INDULGE for directions, hours, etc. Their phone number is listed below.

Coming middle of this week to the shop:

*Black Crow candles will be restocked in both the 8 oz. and 16 oz. sizes

*New sock kitties and wonderful primitive dolls from Ohio (picture above)

*A few new signs and wooden stars

*A little Spring d├ęcor!

*Still en route are silicone dipped light bulbs, battery taper candles and reed diffusers

Please don’t forget... I have a full assortment of wax melts and cookie tarts at home for local customers. It's never an inconvenience to set up a time to either deliver them to you or have you pick them up.... so please don't hesitate to call me!

My new full time job is going very well, but I sure miss seeing your smiling faces in the shop! I do hope all is well with you and yours.....
